Oslo, Norway: PGS is awarded a large offshore windfarm site characterization contract in the US by a leading renewable energy company.

PGS will use the Sanco Swift, which is rigged as an offshore wind site characterization vessel. Mobilization is scheduled for August 2023 and acquisition is expected to complete in February 2024, with a total project duration of approximately 180 days. Profitability of the project is in line with PGS’ core business.

The project will be acquired with PGS' market-leading ultra-high-resolution 3D (UHR3D) P-Cable. This UHR3D system provides significantly more detailed subsurface data for shallower targets compared to traditional seismic acquisition systems.

We are very pleased with the award of our second offshore wind site characterization contract, which strengthens our position in this market. Our geophysical approach to map and understand the shallow subsurface layers with our UHR3D system is significantly more efficient than conventional solutions. Energy companies acknowledge the value of shorter lead time for accessing high quality data, and we are ready to scale our UHR3D offering to capitalize on the market momentum, says Berit Osnes, Executive Vice President New Energy in PGS.

PGS announces contract awards and MultiClient projects as stock exchange releases if the contract has a value of $10 million or more, MultiClient projects with a duration of 2 months or more and strategically important contracts.
