PGS names it’s new 3D seismic data acquisition vessel

In April 2011, Petroleum Geo-Services ASA (PGS), a leading company in marine seismic and reservoir data acquisition, processing and analysis/interpretation services in Norway, placed an order for two vessels capable of three-dimensional (3D) seismic data acquisition for sea bottom resource exploration to Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) The vessels were built in Nagasaki, and on 24th January 2014, there was a naming ceremony for the second vessel, “Ramform Atlas”.

There were many representative members from PGS, and other relevant Norwegian organizations, including Innovation Norway Tokyo Office, attending the ceremony, followed by a private tour of Ramform Atlas. Ramform Atlas is scheduled to leave Nagasaki at the end of January for the final adjustment in Norway.

An additional order for the two vessels was placed upon exercise by PGS of the option right that was provided when two same type vessels were ordered to MHI in April 2011. The two newly ordered vessels are scheduled for delivery in the first and second half, respectively, of 2015. With this latest order, four vessels will be built by MHI.
