Fugro awarded PGS positioning contract

December 9, 2015

Fugro has been awarded a three-year contract by PGS for the provision of precise satellite positioning systems for its entire seismic vessel fleet.

Fugro, a provider of precise satellite positioning to the offshore oil and gas industry, will supply PGS vessels with a number of completely independent Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS). These systems include Fugro’s recently launched Starfix.G4 - the first commercial GNSS service to utilize all available GNSS systems (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and BeiDou), giving sub-decimeter accuracy - and Starfix.G2+, a global service offering centimeter accuracy in both position and height.

In addition to precise vessel positioning, PGS will benefit from a new generation of positioning technology for their seismic sources and tail buoys. The technology is designed to provide independent decimeter and centimeter positions and heights for remote (seismic source and tail buoy) operations, PGS said.
