HOUSTON, May 26
– Azerbaijan International Operating Co. awarded a third contract extension to WGP Group, Bude, Cornwall, UK, for a life-of-field seismic survey at giant Azeri-Chirag-Guneshli oil field in the Caspian Sea off Azerbaijan.

For the Chirag Azeri Reservoir Seismic Project, WGP since 2007 has designed, installed, and operated a bespoke system capable of repeat all-azimuth ocean bottom cable seismic surveys that enable AIOC to monitor reservoir fluid movement.

WGP has performed three baseline and two repeat surveys, each with a total average spread of 540 sq km, between 2007 and 2009 with 195,000 total shots acquired. With sea trials successfully completed, Phase 2 of CARSP began in April 2010 and includes three new base lines and a repeat survey with an estimated 250,000 total shots.

BP PLC operates ACG field for 10 partner companies: BP, Chevron, SOCAR, INPEX, Statoil, ExxonMobil, TPAO, Devon Energy, ITOCHU, and Hess.
