To me, November is one of my least favourite months, except the best man in the world was born, my husband (yaah). Other than that, nothing cool happens, and if you spend a lot of time around kids or have your own, then there only the impending threat that they will soon pull out the Sears Christmas Wish book and start marking the pages and asking, “how many days ‘til Santa comes?”. It’s going to be a long couple months.

CGGVeritas announced today that it has recently secured numerous multi-year contracts representing $250 million in new business for exclusive marine and land acquisition surveys along with significant pre-financing commitments for future wide-azimuth multi-client programs in the Gulf of Mexico (GoM).

“The award of these multi-year contracts combined with the strong prefinancing level for our wide-azimuth programs in the GoM are clear indicators of the strength of the market and the increasing demand for high-end seismic services” said Robert Brunck Chairman and CEO of CGGVeritas.

In the Middle East, CGGVeritas has been selected to acquire a large 3D offshore seismic survey located in the Gulf. The vessel CGGVeritas Orion will be mobilized for this survey and will commence acquisition during the fourth quarter of 2007. Work on this project is expected to have an18 month duration with an option for an additional year extension.

In land acquisition, CGGVeritas has been awarded multiple contracts in the North American Arctic region where the HPVA technology for high resolution acquisition will be introduced during the next two winter seasons.
