Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 3/27/2006, Location: Middle East

Compagnie Générale de Géophysique has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Industrialization & Energy Services Company (TAQA), its long term Saudi Partner in ARGAS. By this Agreement TAQA will acquire 49% of the capital of CGG Ardiseis, a newly formed CGG subsidiary dedicated to Land & Shallow Water Seismic Data Acquisition in the Middle East. CGG will hold the remaining 51%.

CGG Ardiseis will provide its clients with the whole range of CGG Land and Shallow Water Acquisition Services, focusing on Eye-D, the latest CGG technology for full 3D seismic imaging. High productivity onshore vibroseis operations in the Middle East will particularly benefit from this breakthrough technology.

As part of the Agreement, CGG Ardiseis activities in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries will be exclusively operated by ARGAS (Arabian Geophysical and Surveying Company), which is 51% owned by TAQA and 49% by CGG.

The transaction is expected to be closed before the end of first half 2006.
