Two marine geophysical companies, Polarcus and TGS-NOPEC Geophysical Company (TGS), have entered into a memorandum of understanding to collaborate and jointly develop selected 3D multi-client projects.
Polarcus said on Monday that new projects taken under the collaboration agreement will be announced separately as they occur.
Further, under the collaboration agreement, TGS will extend its vessel agreement with Polarcus entered in June 2015 for the charter of 3D vessel capacity. The extension will be valid through the end of 2017 for up to 10,000 sq. km.
“Polarcus is pleased to collaborate on its multi-client projects with TGS. The agreement will leverage the core strengths and expertise of both parties,” stated Rod Starr, Polarcus CEO.
“The collaboration will drive vessel utilization as well as allow Polarcus to expand its multi-client business with limited capital investment.”
