CGGVeritas Awarded Three-Year Contract In Oman

Regulatory News:

CGGVeritas (Paris:GA) (NYSE:CGV) announced today that Ardiseis, its regional joint venture with TAQA in Oman and the wider Middle East region, has been awarded a three-year firm contract with an option for a further one-year extension for the high-channel-count, high-productivity 3D land seismic operations it is currently conducting in Oman on behalf of Petroleum Development Oman (PDO). This contract award marks over 20 years of continuous land seismic presence by CGGVeritas in Oman.

A step-change in the resolution of the seismic imaging is expected at all subsurface target levels, through implementation of a high-density acquisition configuration deploying the Sercel Nomad 90 vibrator, the highest-force vibrator available in the industry, and the CGGVeritas proprietary high-end broadband vibroseis technique, EmphaSeis. These two new technologies will enable improved penetration of the seismic signal, resulting in a high-density dataset containing frequencies down to 1.5Hz.

Jean-Georges Malcor, CEO, CGGVeritas, said: "This contract is a fitting reward for our Ardiseis Oman crew. It has consistently shown total dedication to delivering the highest data quality and productivity while maintaining an impeccable HSE performance, having announced in February 20 million man-hours of continuous operations without a Lost-Time Incident (LTI). We are very proud that this level of survey excellence is the result of the strong commitment we share with both our Ardiseis partner TAQA and our client PDO who have renewed their confidence in our expertise and high-end technologies for the coming years.”
