The cost to rent the Apartment in Alicante is NOK 2.000,- per week, and will be deducted from your salary.
Anyone who has been awarded the apartment is obliged to inform Stine.Indrebo@pgs.com as soon as possible if he/she does not wish to /cannot use the apartment.
The apartment is awarded on an individual basis and is non-transferable.
Attached you will find the application form for the apartment lottery for the period of 4th September to 25th September 2021.
The draw will apply to the above-mentioned period. Each week will be drawn separately. Each applicant may apply for up to 2 weeks, in order of preference, so that the first name drawn will be awarded his or her first preference. If the second name is drawn also has that week as first preference, he or she will be awarded the second preference, and so on. In this way, we hope to be as fair as possible to all employees while trying to keep the system as simple as possible.
The renting period is from Saturday to Saturday
Week 35 is for example Saturday 4th September – Saturday 11th September and the Apartment can be rented only by PGS offshore Field crew and Field Engineers, who have been employed by PGS for at least 1 year. Other rules regarding the hire of the apartment will be sent to those who “win” a week. If we suddenly get a cancellation, we will send out an e-mail, and then all offshore Field crew can apply for the vacant week, including trainees.
