French seismic contract CGG has won a multi-year extension from Brunei Shell Petroleum (BSP) to continue operating a dedicated seismic imaging centre its head office in Seria, Brunei.

Since 2016, CGG has delivered onshore, marine, transition zone, ocean bottom cable and high-density offshore bottom node seismic imaging results at the BSP centre.

The in-house team will continue to apply their latest proprietary technologies, such as Time-lag FWI, Q-FWI, least-squares migration and shallow imaging, to address the specific regional challenges posed by the presence of widely distributed shallow gas clouds, channels, gas-charged silts and complex fault structures around the discovered fields, CGG said on Thursday.

The duration and value of this contract extension were not divulged.

“This renewal of our dedicated centre contract builds on six years of technical excellence and demonstrates the trust BSP has in our imaging team and high-end technology,” said Peter Whiting, EVP geoscience at CGG.

“We look forward to strengthening our close collaboration with BSP to support its future business success.”

BSP is a 50:50 joint venture between UK supermajor Shell and the Brunei Darussalam government.
