Fugro Takes Over Seabed Geosolutions

Fugro announced on Monday it has entered into an agreement to acquire CGG’s 40% shareholding in Seabed Geosolutions and to terminate the Seabed Geosolutions’ joint venture agreement effective December 30, 2019 in exchange for a cash consideration of $35 million, paid by CGG before year-end 2019.Fugro said it remains fully committed to divest the Seabed Geosolutions business which is a non-core asset held for sale. It is expected that this transaction, which will result in Fugro becoming the sole owner of Seabed Geosolutions, will facilitate the divestment process.In line with CGG's

Seabed Geosolutions to Perform Santos Basin Survey

Seabed Geosolutions has secured a letter of award to provide a 3D ocean bottom node (OBN) survey in 2,000 m of water in the Santos Basin, offshore Brazil.The 410-square-kilometer survey, which has a contract value of more than $50 million, will be performed for a prominent energy company using Seabed Geosolutions’ proprietary Manta OBN technology and remotely operated vehicles. The four-component (4C) project will begin in the second quarter of 2020 and will take around 4 months to complete.Stephan Midenet, CEO of Seabed Geosolutions, said, “We are excited to work with a pioneer in ocean-bot

Seismic From Below

Seabed Geosolutions’ Ocean Bottom Seismic & Manta OBNThe acquisition of seismic data using nodes placed on the sea floor, Ocean Bottom Seismic (OBS) and its use in deep water with Ocean Bottom Nodes (OBN) have been growing rapidly in recent years due to considerable cost savings resulting from innovations in technology and operational concepts. Claudio Paschoa, Marine Technology Reporter’s correspondent in Brazil spoke to Stephan Midenet, CEO of Seabed Geosolutions about OBS technology in general and OBN operations in Brazil.Ocean Bottom Seismic (OBS) TechnologyOBS technology has been

Seabed Geosolutions Wins GoM Extensions

Seabed Geosolutions, a joint venture between Fugro and CGG, has secured an extension to a recently awarded 4D ocean bottom node (OBN) seismic monitoring surveys over multiple oil and gas fields in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.Seabed Geosolutions has recently started as planned with the original workscope, and the additional surveys will increase the total duration to around five months. The extension secures backlog continuity for the CASE Abyss ocean bottom node crew and the Hugin Explorer vessel.Seabed Geosolutions supports the optimal development and production of oil and gas fields by providing high

CGG Wins Petrobras Data Processing Contract

awarded a contract from Petrobras to process the seismic data from a 3D Ocean Bottom Node (OBN) survey covering a full-fold area of 2,180 km2 in Brazil’s deepwater Santos Basin. This will be the largest node survey ever acquired and processed in the industry. The survey will be acquired by Seabed Geosolutions, CGG’s joint venture with Fugro.   The resulting OBN data set will be processed in CGG’s Rio de Janeiro Subsurface Imaging Center.    Jean-Georges Malcor, CEO, CGG, said, “OBN surveys are one option at present for acquiring full-azimuth data offshore Brazil
