The new Business Line combines all of CGG’s Airborne capabilities with its GravMag Solutions business.

The Multi-Physics Business Line offers clients timely and cost-effective solutions encompassing gravity, magnetic, electromagnetic and radiometric surveys with the most comprehensive and advanced range of airborne fixed-wing and helicopter systems.

Multi-Physics is also able to leverage CGG’s decades of expertise in applying these geophysical methods offshore with gravity and magnetic data acquisition from a broad range of marine platforms and onshore with particular specialization in near-surface Multi-Physics to enhance onshore seismic imaging.

The internationally renowned interpretation geoscientists working for this new Business Line integrate multi-physics data with geologic, seismic and well data to add insight to the natural resource evaluation process. They develop and commercialize specialized software to process, invert and interpret potential field and electromagnetic data which are then used to model a large variety of geologic environments. These capabilities extend to the delivery of specialized magnetic models for use in geo-steering by the drilling industry. 

The Business Line’s multi-client library of gravity and magnetic data also helps to further reduce exploration risk by contributing to an integrated understanding of basin architecture and hydrocarbon potential in most of the world’s petroleum basins.

Benoit Ribadeau Dumas, Senior Executive Vice President, Acquisition, CGG, said: “Our creation of this new Multi-Physics Business Line was a logical next-step for CGG as a fully integrated geoscience leader specializing in a unique combination of geological and geophysical techniques.  We believe it offers our petroleum, mining, land management and governmental clients a unique resource of capabilities, experience, knowledge, software and data library, all available from a single source.”
