Grounded
in
the future

S³ is the modern legacy of the CGG exploration company created by the Schlumberger brothers back in 1931.

 

In 2019, Jean-Baptiste, Jacques, Patrick, Loïc, Thomas and Laurent, a hard core of CGG employees, decide to take over the CGG land seismic activities and create a new company with a modern way of geo-exploration. A cohesive team, a worldwide experience with a high level of expertise in geophysics, the financial participation and strong commitment of Eiffel Investment as main shareholder.

 

[S³] Smart Seismic Solutions is born: Agile, Light-structured and yet very Clever and Powerful.

S³ imaging a water reservoir on planet Mars
When you explore subsoil potential, you need to do it the smart way. (just like you would do if you had to explore planet Mars).

That means bring only the essential with a perfect team synchronization to do a good landing. Once it’s done, you can deploy all the sophisticated tools necessary to a good exploration. That’s what we do, and that’s why our structure is deliberately light and flexible, to adapt and redeploy in different locations with a customized set-up, specific for each project needs..

What was true in 1931 (the need to find energy ressources to power the modern life) is still relevant today

The difference is now you need to think more globally and find cleaner energies, compatibles with a worldwide sustainable future. The need for energy independance is also a strong motivation for local energy exploration. Our geophysic know-how helps you to take the right decisions for your local sustainable future :
