Geoscience Company CGG announced the extension of its contract with Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) until the end of 2021 for the provision of subsurface imaging technology and services at its dedicated processing center (DPC) in Muscat.
Within the terms of the extension, the DPC’s capacity, resources and responsibilities will be expanded to respond to the specific requirements of PDO’s data acquisition strategy, CGG said in a statement.
CGG will also reinforce developing expert local staff, onsite training, and educational and mentoring support to Sultan Qaboos University.
CGG has operated the DPC with PDO since 1994. Its experienced land processing specialists deliver the full range of time and depth imaging services to process PDO’s very large, predominantly high-density wide-azimuth onshore seismic data sets and are recognized for their technical excellence and innovative spirit.
Jean-Georges Malcor, CEO, CGG, said: “CGG’s Muscat DPC is the largest and longest-running center of its kind in the Middle East. Over the years, CGG and PDO have established a strong partnership based on trust and a shared ambition to go the extra mile to achieve the very best results to meet PDO’s business objectives. We are therefore delighted to continue accompanying PDO in their ambitious strategy to successfully explore the potential of the most geologically complex parts of Oman.”
