CGG Announces Large Pemex Survey In Gulf Of Mexico

PARIS, Nov. 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
CGG announced today that it has been selected to acquire a large high-end
seismic acquisition survey in the Mexican waters of the Gulf of Mexico on behalf
of Pemex.

The survey is phase 5 in Pemex's Centauro program, the largest ever proprietary
3D wide-azimuth program to be conducted worldwide. Phase 5 will add another
6,850 km(2 )of data to the existing 25,000 km(2) already acquired since Centauro
began in Oct 2010, bringing the total volume to almost 32,000 km(2).

The survey will be acquired by the Oceanic Vega and Oceanic Sirius, CGG's two
state-of-the-art 20-streamer vessels. The project is expected to commence in
mid-November and be completed in March 2014.

Antonio Escalera, VP, Exploration, Pemex, said: "Since Pemex took the innovative
step of adopting wide-azimuth acquisition in 2010, this technology has
consistently demonstrated its reliability at delivering superior illumination
and imaging to help explore Mexico's deep water hydrocarbon resources."

Jean-Georges Malcor, CEO, CGG said: "This fifth phase of the Centauro program
testifies to the successful long-term exploration partnership CGG has developed
with Pemex in the Gulf of Mexico. We will continue to work closely with Pemex to
ensure this new wide-azimuth survey meets their E&P objectives."
