CGG, KGOC Teams to Work Together on Integrated Geoscience Study

CGG will be conducting a multi-year integrated geoscience study with a combined team involving geoscience experts from Kuwait Gulf Oil Company, after winning a contract with KGOC to identify resource growth potential in the onshore Partitioned Zone (PZ).

The combined team will work together to integrate recently acquired and processed 3D seismic data, covering the entire PZ, together with multiple geological, petrophysical and production data sets, in order to deliver a portfolio of exploration prospects.

"We are pleased to work with CGG on this prestigious and highly important project for KGOC…We look forward to working closely with CGG and together identifying the resource growth potential of the PZ onshore,” Mohammad Al-Haimer, director for exploration project Kuwait at KGOC, said in a company statement.

"We are honored to have been selected by KGOC to undertake this high-profile integrated study. It will draw upon the recognized expertise, capabilities and know-how of our GeoConsulting team who have considerable experience in performing large exploration- and reservoir characterization-scale studies integrating many complex geoscience data sets,” Sophie Zurquiyah, chief operating officer at CGG, said in a company statement.
