Environmental Impact of Seismic

Our operations aim to generate as much high-quality seismic data as possible, however, it is our responsibility to ensure we do so with the least amount of environmental impact and interference with the activities other users of the oceans.

The oceans of the world are our working place. We operate across the globe in a range of environments from the tropics to the Arctic, from developed oil provinces to frontier areas. We share our working place with many others that rely on the oceans for their income or sustenance.

Our Commitments

To fulfill our environmental ambition, we are committed to:

  • Preventing harm to the environment by reducing risk 
  • Complying with legal requirements and industry standards
  • Achieving continual improvement in environmental performance

There is still more to be learned about the effects of seismic surveys and other exploration and production activities on marine ecosystems. PGS works with the industry to improve understanding, technology, and practices in order to reduce impacts on marine ecosystems.

ISO Certification

PGS has been ISO 14001 certified since 2012. This formal commitment to continual improvement of our environmental performance ensures that our management system and practices are in line with best practices.
