September 3, 2009 at 3:07 am Leave a comment

CGGVeritas has expanded its open processing and imaging center in Aberdeen, UK. The center has been comprehensively upgraded to facilitate and support the significant advances in the seismic imaging technology and services it provides. This commitment is a direct response to the increasing complexity of the technical challenges faced by the region’s explorers and producers.

            Technology expansions within the center include a significant investment in enhanced compute power and data throughput resources. The center also has a new purpose-built client data room, complete with a graphics computation center that provides advanced viewing of large 3D seismic volumes.

            To complement the processing and imaging capabilities, the center upgrade also strengthens Hampson-Russell, its reservoir services department, with enhanced resources to address the seismic industry’s growing challenges and demands.

            Lionel Lhommet, Exec. VP, EAME region, said: “Since the center opened ten years ago, it has gained a well-deserved reputation for providing high-technology products together with customer-focused service. Its success lies in its close proximity to our clients and its focus on uniquely addressing their local challenges. With this expansion we want to reaffirm our commitment to deliver the full breadth of our technology and capabilities to our Aberdeen clients.”

            The CGGVeritas Aberdeen center offers the full range of processing services, including 3D and 4D processing of both towed streamer and ocean-bottom cable datasets. Onsite depth imaging experts draw on a wide variety of techniques, including Controlled Beam Migration and Reverse Time Migration using TTI models to solve even the most complex challenges. The center’s location encourages close technical partnerships with clients and allows interpreter input at regular intervals throughout the seismic processing process.

            Part of CGGVeritas’ worldwide network of imaging centers, the Aberdeen location receives seamless technical and resource support from Europe’s largest processing and imaging center in Crawley, UK.
