Oil and gas companies use PGS data in the exploration phase to investigate regional geology and to locate reservoirs and spot traps during their search for new reserves. Later, in the production phase, they need accurate data with reliable attributes to plan the interventions required to produce efficiently from existing reservoirs over the life of a field.

  • Sales & Services markets and sells seismic services on a contract basis, MultiClient library data, and imaging services worldwide
  • Operations & Technology plans, manages and executes all our acquisition projects, and is home to the team that develops new technology solutions
