Schlumberger strike agreement on seismic with Petronas

Schlumberger news

Schlumberger said it has signed an agreement to license a significant part of the WesternGeco Campeche seismic survey in the southern Gulf of Mexico with Petronas.

The Western Geco Campeche deepwater survey is located in the southern Gulf of Mexico.

More than 800,000km of newly imaged subsurface data has been acquired in the last 12 months.

The project follows the Mexican government’s opening of licensing rounds to non-government companies for the first time.

Maurice Nessim, president of WesternGeco, Schlumberger, said: “We are pleased to have the opportunity to expand our collaboration with PETRONAS in Mexican waters of the Gulf of Mexico,’ ‘The great potential of the area and complexity of the geology in the Campeche basin requires high-quality wide-azimuth acquisition to image the subsalt effectively.

“We will leverage our extensive US Gulf of Mexico experience to deliver enhanced subsalt imaging and additional exploration solutions to our clients.”
