Three-year PGS deal for Fugro

Fugro has been awarded a three-year contract by PGS for the provision of satellite positioning systems for its entire seismic vessel fleet.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}PGS, a provider of marine seismic and electromagnetic services, data acquisition, imaging, reservoir services and multi-client library data, will outfit its vessels with a number of completely independent Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS).

These will include Fugro’s recently launched Starfix.G4 - the first commercial GNSS service to utilise all available GNSS systems (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and BeiDou), giving sub-decimetre accuracy - and Starfix.G2+, a global service offering centimetre accuracy in both position and height.

In addition, PGS will also be supplied with positioning technology for its seismic sources and tailbuoys.

“Reliable, precise positioning technology is essential for modern seismic operations. The solution supplied by Fugro will ensure our entire fleet has highly accurate vessel positioning, along with precise source and streamer positioning,” said Cerys James, VP technical at PGS.{/mprestriction}
