Creating The Premier Energy Data Company

PGS and TGS have merged to form a pioneering data and services company in the energy sector, serving customers across the energy value chain and positioning itself as a strategic partner for energy companies. Explore our vision. 

Reduction of CO2 emission and fuel consumption

Leveraging fleet productivity and technology is an important pillar of PGS business strategy. We strive continually to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases per unit of data collected, by applying modern technology to improve fuel efficiency, voyage planning, and logistics.

Since 2011, we have reduced our CO² emissions by close to 30%. We believe that we can do more, by further maximizing efficiency, optimizing unitization and reducing drag. Our goal is to achieve a 50% reduction by 2030, compared to 2011.

We make continuous efforts to optimize the energy efficiency of our operations through analysis and smart technology. Here are some of the initiatives that we have implemented:  

  • Fuel plans for all transits and jobs
  • Reducing transit speeds
  • Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plans (SEEMPs) for all vessels
  • Optimizing engines and compressors to run on high load at 85% MCR
  • Ship performance dashboards on Ramform Titan class (monitor emissions, fuel and power consumption)

By reducing drag from towed equipment, our operations technical team hopes to significantly improve fuel consumption. The introduction of steerable paravanes with active bridle blocks is one of many incremental improvements contributing to this goal.

PGS is using its digital transformation process to accelerate strategy execution. We are working to refine our approaches to optimize fuel consumption by analyzing contextualized data gathered and applied through a combination of operations technology and information technology. In 2020, PGS has partnered with Cognite, a global industrial artificial intelligence software-as-a-service company, to work on this.
