PGS renews marine software deal with ION

Geoscience company ION Geophysical and marine seismic firm Petroleum Geo-Services (PGS) have signed a joint agreement for the provision of ION’s Orca software to PGS’ fleet.

ION said on Monday that the new five-year contract extended the companies’ technology partnership in marine command and control solutions to over 30 years.

As explained by ION, Orca integrates and manages data and workflows for seismic data acquisition, enabling geophysical service providers to control operations in diverse modes of acquisition. The system streamlines visibility and control to execute geometries and multi-vessel operations while delivering simple processes for 2D, 3D, and 4D acquisition.

According to the company, Orca’s automated workflows are designed to “improve seismic operational efficiency through reduced downtime, minimal infill, lower costs, and shorter cycle time.”

Per Arild Reksnes, PGS’ EVP of operations, said: “We have been using Orca for many years, and the quality of the product and customer service provided by ION is important to our operations. PGS’ major advances in offshore seismic acquisition technology have been well supported by corresponding developments in the Orca platform, including interfaces to our proprietary GeoStreamer marine seismic system.”
