CGG Awarded 10,000 Km2 BroadSeis Survey Program Offshore Malaysia

PARIS, Sept. 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

CGG announced today its award by PETRONAS of a contract to acquire and process a
10,000-km(2)  3D seismic survey program  offshore Sabah and  Sarawak in Malaysia
using  BroadSeis(TM),  CGG's  broadband  marine  solution. The survey started in
August  and is due to last five months. The survey data set will be processed in
CGG's Kuala Lumpur data center.

Two CGG vessels are being deployed to ensure the program is completed before the
onset of the monsoon season. The Viking Vision and Geowave Voyager are deploying
their  respective 12 x 100 x 8100 m and 8 x  100 x 8100 m spreads in a BroadSeis
configuration  using steerable Sercel Sentinel(®)  solid streamers equipped with
Nautilus(®) streamer control devices.

BroadSeis  has been  selected to  address the  challenging geology in this area,
ranging  from carbonate  layers to  complex channels  and shallow gas anomalies.
With  its market-leading bandwidth and low  frequency content, in particular, it
is  expected to  improve penetration  for the  imaging of  deep targets and pre-
carbonate reservoirs and enhance seismic inversion results.

BroadSource(TM),  CGG's broadband marine source, will also be used on one of the
blocks, to enhance resolution of shallow targets and improve fault definition.

Jean-Georges  Malcor, CEO, CGG, said:  "Broadband technology has been generating
increasing  interest  among  our  Malaysian  clients  in  recent  years.  CGG is
recognized as having a very strong track record of broadband acquisition and our
BroadSeis  solution continues to demonstrate its versatility as seen on a recent
successful survey in shallow waters in Vietnam. This experience will be valuable
for  this contract,  which includes  a shallow  water area,  and marks our sixth
BroadSeis survey in Malaysia since 2010."
