Marine seismic data company PGS announced April 8 its award for a large 3D contract offshore South Atlantic margin from a multiclient company.

A Ramform Titan-class vessel is scheduled to commence mobilization in June, with a forecast acquisition duration of up to 300 days.

“The combination of the Ramform acquisition platform and our GeoStreamer technology is well suited for large scale exploration surveys and positioned to deliver strong operational performance over extended time periods,” said Rune Olav Pedersen, president and CEO of PGS, in a press release accompanying the announcement.

 According to Pedersen, seismic activity offshore South Atlantic margin is increasing as a result of recent exploration success.
