This is PGS

PGS provides images and 3D data about the subsurface that oil companies use to find and produce oil and gas reserves

Oil and gas companies use PGS data in the exploration phase to investigate regional geology and to locate reservoirs and spot traps during their search for new reserves. Later, in the production phase, they need accurate data with reliable attributes to plan the interventions required to produce efficiently from existing reservoirs over the life of a field. 

Our activities are organized into two business areas.

  • Sales & Services markets and sells seismic services on a contract basis, MultiClient library data, and imaging services worldwide
  • Operations & Technology plans, manages and executes all our acquisition projects, and is home to the team that develops new technology solutions

Vessel Fleet

The modern, reliable PGS fleet has an average age of just five years. The fleet of eight 3D seismic vessels accommodates seasonal market swings by using two of the ships selectively according to demand swings. On average our seismic vessels towed 14.5 streamers per vessel in 2017.

In 2017 we radically revised our business structures and processes and had to let many valued employees go. Despite the inevitable upheaval such change produces, PGS continued to benefit from a strong team culture and the dedication of our people. The Company remains devoted to further developing its workforce and providing a safe and respectful working environment, to support the employees' health and well-being.
