CGGVeritas Returns To Algeria With Land Seismic Award

Regulatory News:

CGGVeritas (Paris:GA) (NYSE:CGV) announced today that it is set to resume land seismic acquisition operations in Algeria after the award of a 3D Vibroseis survey by Groupement Timimoun (GTIM), a joint venture between Sonatrach, Total EP Algérie and CEPSA. This award has been the result of an Open Call for Tender process.

This survey, covering a total surface area of 2,240 km 2 over the Timimoun block in the South of Algeria, has been commissioned as the first phase in the Timimoun unconventional gas field development plan. The CGGVeritas high-channel-count crew deployed for this project will use two high-end proprietary acquisition technologies, high-productivity vibroseis acquisition (HPVA TM) and EmphaSeis TM broadband vibroseis, to acquire the high-density, broadband dataset required for detailed reservoir characterization. Recorded in a timeframe comparable to that of conventional data, the dataset will also be processed in the field with a fast turnaround to ensure the results are delivered in time to determine the field’s preliminary drilling plan.

Jean-Georges Malcor, CEO, CGGVeritas, said: "This award marks the welcome return of a CGGVeritas land crew to Algeria after 15 years of absence. We are seeing growing recognition among oil companies operating in Algeria of the crucial role played by high-end seismic in the development and exploitation of oil and gas fields.”
