Schlumberger acquires GEDCO

Schlumberger

Schlumberger announced today that it has acquired GEDCO, a Calgary-based provider of integrated geophysical survey design software and services. The group will become part of the WesternGeco business unit.

GEDCO has developed OMNI 3D, the industry’s standard for seismic survey design and modeling, and VISTA, a flexible 2D/3D seismic data processing package. The group also offers consulting services for 2D and 3D seismic and vertical seismic profile (VSP) solutions from design through interpretation.

“The addition of GEDCO will enable us to better support our clients through the entire exploration and production cycle by complementing and extending our proven geophysical survey design and modeling capabilities,” said Maurice Nessim, vice president, WesternGeco GeoSolutions.

“This transaction is recognition of GEDCO’s success in developing innovative geophysical technologies and workflows,” said Andreas Cordsen, president and CEO, GEDCO. “With the added strength of the WesternGeco research and development program, integration into their portfolio of software and services, and increased access to international markets, the GEDCO team is looking forward to joining WesternGeco and continuing to deliver leading geophysical software solutions to our clients worldwide.”

As the industry explores for oil and gas in increasingly complex geological environments with higher risks and ever increasing time pressure, survey design and modeling become even more critical to success.
