(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) CGG SA, the world's largest seismic surveyor of oilfields, opened its new office in Muscat to cater to its expanding business in Oman.
The Paris-based company's new office - at Beach One Building in Qurm - was inaugurated on Wednesday by H E Dr Mohammed al Rumhi, Minister of Oil and Gas, in the presence of H E Yves Oudin, France's Ambassador to the sultanate.
CGG has been active in Oman for several decades. Besides land seismic acquisition projects, CGG has been providing dedicated seismic processing and imaging services to PDO for over 20 years, and recently had its contract renewed.
CGG also opened a second seismic data processing and imaging centre in Muscat, to cater to the growing number of independent and international oil and gas companies. As CGG's business has expanded, the need arose for a new location to house the growing number of staff and computer facilities.
Speaking at the event, Raoul Jacquand, executive vice-president of geomarkets sales and marketing at CGG, said, ''It is exciting to see CGG taking its local presence to new levels, which is very important to our business. The inauguration of new facilities is a testimony to our commitment to Oman. CGG has been present in the region for decades. We are now looking to modernise our footprints in Oman and offer the most advanced technical solutions require by Omani oil and gas industry.''
