Schlumberger WesternGeco, ION Team Up for Mexico Reimaging Program

Schlumberger WesternGeco and ION Geophysical Corporation have announced a new 3D multiclient reimaging broadband program offshore Mexico, which will utilize Mexico’s National Hydrocarbons Commission (CNH) data library.

The Campeche 3D reimaging program comprises three survey areas covering approximately 31,660 square miles in the Bay of Campeche, offshore southern Mexico, and will be processed using a combination of custom technologies and techniques from both organizations that will “maximize data quality and offer geological insights for upcoming licensing rounds,” according to Schlumberger.

"We are pleased to be collaborating with WesternGeco on such a large project offshore Mexico, where we anticipate continued strong client interest,” said ION President and Chief Executive Officer Brian Hanson.

“The Campeche 3D reimaging program area is in one of the most challenging, yet prospective regions offshore Mexico where we have significant processing experience and expertise,” he added.

"We are confident this collaboration will bring value to our customers through the highest quality imaging, which will improve their understanding of the complex subsurface geology in this area,” said Maurice Nessim, president of WesternGeco.

The program is fully supported by industry funding.
