CGG is a fully integrated Geoscience company providing leading geological, geophysical and reservoir capabilities to its broad base of customers primarily from the global oil and gas industry.
CGG implemented TerraGo solutions, including GeoPDF Publisher and GeoPDf Toolbar, to leverage the “GIS- Lite” capabilities for some of the biggest oil and gas companies in the world. Since 2007, the organization has been compiling, analyzing and sharing geospatial data though the use of TerraGo GeoPDF and GeoPDF Toolbar in its Multi-Physics business line, which provides expertise in potential fields and electromagnetics to complement seismic data in exploration workflows. The company includes GeoPDFs as part of the final package it delivers to many Multi-Physics clients.
When CGG produces a GeoPDF, the company goes beyond just making a map to print. The GIS team adds various vector layers and customizes the layers to help visualize and emphasize the most relevant information for its oil and gas customers.
CGG also finds that GeoPDFs are ideal archiving tools to capture the geospatial intelligence at a particular point in time, and since it is not based on software that could be rendered obsolete over time, it can live on forever. The portability of the solution also makes it easier to share information with all relevant parties.
