CGG announced the extension of its contract with Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) for the provision of subsurface imaging technology and services at its dedicated processing center (DPC) in Muscat. The contract will be extended until the end of 2021,  Your Oil and Gas News informed.

According to Scandinavian Oil&Gas Magazine, within the terms of the extension, the DPC’s capacity, resources and responsibilities will be expanded to respond to the specific requirements of PDO’s data acquisition strategy.

CGG will also reinforce its significant In-Country Value initiatives, such as developing expert local staff, onsite training, and educational and mentoring support to Sultan Qaboos University.

CGG’s CEO, Jean-Georges Malcor, stated, “Over the years, CGG and PDO have established a strong partnership based on trust and a shared ambition to go the extra mile to achieve the very best results to meet PDO’s business objectives. We are therefore delighted to continue accompanying PDO in their ambitious strategy to successfully explore the potential of the most geologically complex parts of Oman.”
