PGS said on Tuesday that this collaboration marked “a significant step by the company in the digital transformation of its business.”

According to the firm, by harnessing Google’s cloud-based technologies and incorporating artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities into workflows, PGS will increase flexibility, scalability, and deliver more reliable data faster to customers.

PGS president and CEO Rune Olav Pedersen said: “PGS sees a strategic advantage in enabling new ways of working with subsurface data that support our clients’ evolution of cloud-based analysis to achieve faster and better decisions.

“We need shared data platforms with industry-wide access to achieve those goals. That’s why we have chosen Google Cloud Platform as it’s one of the largest networks in the world and one of the fastest. This move marks a milestone in our digital roadmap.

“Data workflows, commercial models for MultiClient and collaboration with customers will ultimately benefit, and so will our operational efficiency.”
