The energy transition is inevitable, says Berit Osnes. The world has to do this, and we intend to be part of it. PGS will be a leading provider of subsurface data to enable the energy transition.
"PGS is already providing services in some of these domains, but this is not just about who we are today, the energy industry needs to assemble a new value chain, and it needs more momentum to make it happen. PGS wants to be part of that. We have the people and the knowledge to transform and deliver a new set of data, or data for new applications."
“I and other gen-X leaders have spent a good part of the past two decades shaping the energy industry. We have never had a greater purpose to do so than now. We know how capital markets work; we know how to assemble profitable value chains that attract capital and grow rapidly. The shift to sustainable energy is a great opportunity for all of us.”
“PGS and society at large face a challenge. We know that, over time, we need to transition to a new mix of products, services, and energy sources – what we don’t yet know is how? Urgency and momentum will be required, and effective collaboration to work out HOW we can achieve our vision. My role is to cut across disciplines, to get people together. No single person or company has all the answers. We need to make real collaboration happen and recognize that collaboration is not always easy. Partners may need to give up something in order to truly understand how to work together. I wake up every morning ready to face many questions I can’t answer yet. It’s almost like being a researcher again.”
