PARIS, Feb. 3, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CGG announced today that it has been awarded an extension to a major 3D seismic survey it successfully completed on the Caribbean coast offshore Colombia in late 2015.
The new survey follows on from the original over 16,000-km2 survey CGG conducted over portions of the Col-1 and Col-2 blocks, which was the largest survey ever recorded offshore Colombia.
