CGG Completes Processing a Multi-Client Seismic Survey in East Indonesia

CGG reported Wednesday that it has completed processing of the Bade FALCON Airborne Gravity Gradiometer (AGG) multi-client survey it recently conducted within the Papua Foreland Basin in east Indonesia.

CGG acquired over 10,810 square miles (28,000 square kilometers) of FALCON AGG data over onshore PSC, JSA and open acreage in a highly underexplored region of West Papua along trend from multi-TCF (trillion cubic feet) gas fields and recent oil discoveries in Papua New Guinea.

The FALCON system measures minute changes in the Earth's gravity to high accuracy and high spatial resolution using both helicopter and fixed-wing platforms. Falcon AGG is the highest-resolution, lowest instrument noise gravity gradiometer in production today and is unique in having been specifically designed for airborne activity.

Luc Schlumberger, executive vice president, Multi-Client & New Ventures, CGG, said: “CGG’s industry-leading AGG technology, advanced processing methods, and exceptional data quality will significantly enhance explorers’ ability to image the basin architecture and structural framework of this prospective area.”
