CGG acquired over 28,000 square kilometres of Falcon AGG data over onshore PSC, JSA and open acreage in a highly underexplored region of West Papua along trend from multi-TCF gas fields and recent oil discoveries in Papua New Guinea.

“CGG’s industry-leading AGG technology, advanced processing methods, and exceptional data quality will significantly enhance explorers’ ability to image the basin architecture and structural framework of this prospective area,” said Luc Schlumberger, executive vice president, Multi-Client & New Ventures, CGG.

The Falcon system measures minute changes in the Earth's gravity to high accuracy and high spatial resolution using both helicopter and fixed-wing platforms. Falcon AGG is the highest-resolution, lowest instrument noise gravity gradiometer in production today and is unique in having been specifically designed for airborne activity.
