ION and PGS Renew Orca Software Agreement
ION Geophysical and Petroleum Geo-Services (PGS) announced a joint agreement for ION to continue supplying Orca software to PGS’ fleet for another five years.
This contract extends the parties’ technology partnership in marine command and control solutions to over 30 years.
Orca integrates and manages data and workflows for seismic data acquisition, enabling geophysical service providers to control operations in the safe, efficient manner in increasingly diverse modes of acquisition.
Per Arild Reksnes, EVP of Operations at PGS 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. A new, long-term agreement requires cooperation on a robust product roadmap, and we are pleased that Orca will support PGS’ unique vision for the future.”
“We’re pleased to continue our long-standing collaboration with PGS on our industry’s leading platform for command and control, which continues to enable improvements in both safety, precision and efficiency across the marine seismic acquisition workflow,” said Chris Usher, EVP of ION’s E&P Operations Optimization group.
