CGG has become a member of the Centre for Geophysical Forecasting, a world-leading research and innovation consortium based in the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU).
The Centre for Geophysical Forecasting aims to leverage the combined expertise of its 15 members from a wide range of business sectors, both private and public, to “catalyse a new wave of geophysical capabilities, applying disruptive new technologies to novel enterprises that will be game-changers” in the energy transition.
CGG said it would bring its industry-leading expertise in seismic modelling and imaging to the work of the consortium. More specifically, it will contribute to the development, modelling, implementation and field testing of a new subsurface imaging and monitoring system designed to support a range of energy transition activities.
Dave Priestley, VP, Energy Transition & Environment, CGG, said: “CGG looks forward to actively participating in the development of groundbreaking technologies, particularly in the Centre for Geophysical Forecasting’s key innovation areas of carbon capture and storage management, and geohazard monitoring and forecasting. We are highly motivated to work with the other consortium experts and see significant alignment with our strategy and technology focus to support the energy transition.”
