CGG Completes First Proprietary BroadSeis-BroadSource 3D Survey In Australia

PARIS, Sept. 25, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
CGG   announced   today  the  successful  completion  of  its  first  BroadSeis-
BroadSource(TM)  survey  in  Australia  in  July  of  this  year.  The 'Sandman'
deepwater  broadband survey on the Northwest Australian shelf was awarded to CGG
by Shell Development Australia Pty Ltd.

The  2810-km(2) 3D BroadSeis survey  was acquired by  the Viking Vision towing a
12 x  100 x 6000 m  spread of  steerable Sercel  Sentinel(®) solid streamers and
equipped  with BroadSource,  the company's  proprietary broadband marine seismic

BroadSource  reinforces  the  benefits  of  BroadSeis,  CGG's  broadband  marine
solution, to offer the widest available bandwidth and is ideal for the Northwest
shelf  of  Australia  where  the  broad  bandwidth  will provide high-resolution
imaging, enabling accurate interpretation of subtle hydrocarbon traps, and clear
identification  of  drilling  hazards  such  as  shallow  gas. The excellent low
frequencies   will   provide  better  penetration  for  the  imaging  of  deeper
objectives,  as well  as more  reliable reservoir  properties for  more accurate

The  survey data set is currently  being processed in CGG's Singapore Subsurface
Imaging center and is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2014.

Jean-Georges  Malcor,  CEO,  CGG,  said:  "As  client  demand  for our broadband
solutions  and BroadSeis in  particular continues to  grow, industry interest in
the  benefits of combining  BroadSeis with BroadSource  for ghost-free broadband
data  is also  gaining momentum.  CGG already  has experience  in acquiring such
surveys  in India, Vietnam, the  North Sea and now  Australia where we have seen
new  levels of resolution in  both the near-surface and  for deeper targets. The
Sandman survey, acquired successfully using both BroadSeis and BroadSource, is a
first  globally for  Shell and  we are  confident that  it will  help unlock the
considerable E&P potential of such an important region as the Northwest shelf of
