New multi-client geoscience programs maximize value of seismic and give regional context to support exploration efforts.
CGG’s JumpStart™ multi-client geoscience programs integrate the most advanced seismic data with reviewed, calibrated and interpreted well and geological data for petroleum systems evaluation, supported by regional interpretations and reports. The aim is to provide a single source for all the available information about an area in a consistent, accessible and ready-to-use format, in order to maximize the value of the seismic data and provide a regional context to support exploration efforts. There are seven JumpStart programs nearing completion, offshore Mexico, Brazil, Gabon, Australia, Indonesia & Timor Leste, and Norway, with more programs in the pipeline.
The three major components of a JumpStart program are: the acquisition and processing, or reprocessing, of seismic data; collation and analysis of available wells, including core data where possible; and integration of this upgraded data, and other available information, into a comprehensive interpretation and evaluation of the basin’s petroleum system(s). The typical workflow starts with a regional geology review which forms the basis for the interpretation of the seismic data, basin model building, and play fairway analysis.
