CGG Develops its Presence in India

CGG has made a move to further strengthen its presence in India with the launch of a new data processing center in Mumbai. Senior representatives from CGG, the national oil company, ONGC, and the major oil companies, including Reliance, operating in India attended the opening ceremony held on February 22nd.

The Mumbai location for this new processing platform was a strategic decision to offer clients in the region easy access to a full spectrum of seismic processing and reservoir services of the very highest standard. The new centre runs state-of-the-art Geocluster processing software to deliver consistently fast and reliable products, like the other 26 centres in CGG's worldwide processing network.

Robert Brunck, Chairman and CEO of CGG, said: "India has one of the fastest growing exploration and production activities in the region. The opening of this new centre in Mumbai marks a new stage in our strategy to strengthen our position in India as a provider of the full range of seismic services. Historically, CGG has been a constant contributor to India's exploration efforts for the last forty years and this move further underlines our commitment to support India in fast-tracking its E&P efforts."
