Ramform Tethys is Launched

PGS celebrated the latest Ramform Titan-class the Ramform Tethys at a ceremony in Nagasaki, Japan on 17 March. This newbuild enhances the Ramform Titan-class acquisition platform and sets the standard for seismic operations for the next 25 years.

"With the increased power output and the back deck modifications we are enhancing the Ramform Titan-class acquisition platform further. Productivity, safety, stability and redundancy are the key benefits of these vessels. Their ability to tow many streamers gives high data quality with dense cross-line sampling and cost efficient acquisition with wide tows," says Per Arild Reksnes, EVP Operations.

This enormously stable platform has outstanding seakeeping characteristics that take full advantage of our GeoStreamer® technology. Like her Titan-class sisters, she has the flexibility to encompass virtually any acquisition design. Safety, efficiency and productivity are the best in the industry.

The Ramform Tethys sets the new standard for seismic operations for the next 25 years.

Jon Erik Reinhardsen, President and CEO of PGS states in a comment: "The Ramform Tethys further strengthens our fleet productivity and together with the other Ramform Titan-class vessels will enhance our competitive edge. In the current challenging market environment we also experience more demand for our best capacity and Ramform Tethys will add to PGS ultra-high-end value proposition."
