Schlumberger 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.
