CGG has been awarded a contract by Shell for a major 3D survey offshore Mauritania, expected to commence later this year. Shell was awarded blocks C-10 and C-19 in July 2018, taking a 90% stake with the remainder held by state oil company SMHPM. The survey will cover "several thousand square-kilometers", according to a source, and may be one of CGG's last jobs in the proprietary acquisition market.
