The strategic collaboration has a global scope with an initial focus on the North Sea, and a duration of one year with options to extend by two plus two years.

The hybrid market is defined as the contemporaneous use of towed streamer and ocean bottom node acquisition technologies.

Rune Olav Pedersen, CEO in PGS, says:

“We believe the strategic collaboration with Magseis Fairfield, the industry leading node company, will create a unique opportunity to take advantage of the untapped potential in the growing hybrid seismic acquisition market. We have experience from joint streamer and node projects. However, combining resources with Magseis Fairfield positions us much better to provide our clients with the best possible solutions.”

Carel Hooijkaas, CEO in Magseis Fairfield, says:

“We are pleased to enter into a strategic collaboration with PGS. The combination of their high-end streamer and source technology and our proprietary innovative node technology will position us well to capture growth opportunities adding to our current node acquisition business. We see increased customer interest in hybrid surveys.”
