CGG and Air Control have signed an agreement to provide airborne geophysical survey services in Kazakhstan. This allows Air Control to offer the full suite of CGG airborne geophysical technologies for subsurface exploration to oil & gas and mining clients in Kazakhstan.
Air Control performs flight inspection services at all of Kazakhstan’s airports, offers aerial imagery and terrain elevation data using the latest laser scanner equipment and provides technical and management support to various aviation operators.

Our cooperation with CGG will provide our customers with a wide spectrum of solutions for aerial surveys.”
CGG’s senior executive vice president, acquisition, Benoit Ribadeau Dumas said: “Our multi-physics solutions are a timely and cost-effective way to de-risk exploration and many of our multi-national clients have asked when we would provide these services in Kazakhstan.
“We are very excited about this collaboration with Air Control. Air Control is an ideal partner for us as a result of its successful track record and reputation for providing specialized high-technology applications in the aviation sector in Kazakhstan.”
