CGG announced Tuesday a program to deliver “the largest OBN multi-client survey ever conducted in the UK Central North Sea”.

Planned to start in early 2020, the survey has already received “significant industry interest” and is being pre-funded, in part, by BP plc, CGG revealed.

The new survey will provide a “step-change” in seismic image and reservoir characterization quality, according to CGG. First results are targeted for the first quarter of 2021.

“We are pleased to initiate this exciting new OBN program which will deliver unprecedented industry insight and lead to a step-change in development in this critical Central North Sea area,” Sophie Zurquiyah, CGG CEO, said in a company statement.

“The new data set will also complement CGG’s extensive high-quality cornerstone towed-streamer data library in the area and support the UK Oil & Gas Authority’s strategy for Maximizing Economic Recovery,” Zurquiyah added.

CGG describes itself as a leading geoscience company and the industry leader in OBN processing. The company has 35 locations worldwide and around 5,300 employees, according to its website.

Earlier this month, the company expanded its Middle East presence with a new regional geoscience center in Abu Dhabi.
