CGG :Second CGG BroadSeis Multi-client Survey In Norway Offers New Seismic Footprint In Barents Sea

PARIS, Oct. 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

Second CGG BroadSeis multi-client survey in Norway offers new seismic footprint
in Barents Sea

CGG announced today that it has successfully completed a second BroadSeis(TM)
multi-client survey offshore Norway. The survey covers a 2,300 km(2 )areain the
BarentsSea. Fast-track processing deliverables will be available by the end of
2013 and final processing products by August 2014.

This second BroadSeis 3D survey is located in the southeastern part of the
Barents Sea adjacent to the recent eastward extension of Norwegian territory as
a result of the border agreement between Norway and Russia. New data is required
to assess the petroleum potential in this region.

The Barents Sea BroadSeis survey follows on from CGG's recent first BroadSeis
multi-client survey offshore Norway which targeted the Halten Terrace. The
industry has shown strong interest in this new multi-client data acquired with
CGG's broadband technology and initial results just released show a significant
improvement in the imaging of deeper targets.

Jean-Georges Malcor, CEO, CGG, said: "CGG regards Norway as an important region
for the expansion of its multi-client activities and is working on several new
projects including the Barents Sea survey. Our geologists are optimistic about
this region's oil potential and we consider it to be a strong candidate for
inclusion in Norway's 23(rd) licensing round set to take place in the second
half of 2014. Our recently expanded team of multi-client experts in Norway drew
on their extensive knowledge of the Barents Sea region to design this BroadSeis
survey and we are convinced that the resulting images will enhance the
industry's geological understanding of this promising region."
