CGG: Sercel Sells 18,000 Channels Of UNITE Cable-Free System To CGL

PARIS, France, Sept. 20, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

Sercel has sold 18,000 channels of its industry-leading UNITE cable-free land
seismic acquisition system to Compañía Geofisica Latinoamericana (CGL). The
order relates to the sale of RAU eX-3 three-channel units of Sercel's proven
UNITE system that will be deployed by Ecopetrol, Colombia's largest integrated
oil & gas Company, on its 3D project in the Avila - Caño Sur Block.

The RAU eX-3 offers enhanced flexibility and can easily be configured to record
either 1-C or 3-C analog data. The system's unique high-speed, long-range
wireless capability improves in-field quality control of data acquisition by
providing wireless harvesting and real-time data transfer.

Seismic contractor CGL has previously purchased over 3,000 channels of Sercel's
428XL acquisition system and its selection of the UNITE system offers the
advantage of seamless compatibility and integration into the 428XL.

Juan Carlos Pineda, VP of Operations, CGL, said: "We are very pleased to place
our order with Sercel for our first UNITE acquisition system.  We chose UNITE
for its compatibility with the Sercel product range, ease-of-use when operating
in autonomous mode and superior wireless data harvesting.  With UNITE, greater
operational efficiency will be achieved, since there is no need to return field
units to basecamp for data downloading and transcription."

Pascal Rouiller, CEO, Sercel, said: "We are delighted that CGL and Ecopetrol
have chosen Sercel's state-of-the-art UNITE system. We thank them for their
support and are confident they will achieve greater efficiency and increased
productivity with UNITE's unique capabilities. This significant order confirms
Sercel's success in addressing the worldwide cable-free market."
