Polarcus Limited has entered into a memorandum of understand to collaborate with TGS-NOPEC Geophysical Company ASA to jointly develop selected 3D multi-client projects. 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.
According to Polarcus CEO, Rod Starr, “The agreement will leverage the core strengths and expertise of both parties.”
“The collaboration will drive vessel utilization as well as allow Polarcus to expand its multi-client business with limited capital investment,” Starr added.
