PetroVision lives!

Rumors of the death of CGG’s PetroVision data management system have been greatly exaggerated.

CGG has issued a clarification subsequent to the sale of its Flagship software arm to Paradigm, and in response to industry rumors of the abandonment of its PetroVision data management system. CGG states that it is committed to the data management business and to PetroVision.

National Databanks

In 2000, CGG has been working on contract with Russia’s Lukoil to set up a geological and geophysical data bank to manage E&P assets in Western Siberia. Other databank projects have been undertaken in the Middle East including EGPC (Egypt) and for QGPC (Qatar.) Both projects cover a broad range of E&P data types including seismic sections, field tapes, analogue data, well data, rock samples, reports and maps.


A significant service component is the hallmark of a PetroVision installation, with considerable effort spent on data loading and QC. PetroVision, like PGS’ PetroBank deploys the POSC Epicentre data model. In 2001 CGG aims to increase its data management market share in the Americas and the Far East.
