Polarcus has opened its first office in Norway. The new office is in the center of Stavanger, and adds to the firm's global network of regional marketing offices in London, Houston, Singapore, Moscow, and Rio de Janeiro.
The firm says it has had close ties with Norway from its inception in 2008, including listing its shares on the Oslo Bors in September 2009, before starting its first 3D seismic operations offshore Norway in June 2010.
Its first project was acquired for Gassnova SF, the Norwegian state enterprise for carbon capture and storage (CCS).
Polarcus also built its two latest vessels, Polarcus Amani and Polarcus Adira, at the Ulstein Yard in Norway.
Polarcus has continued to expand its footprint in Norway ever since, acquiring proprietary and multi-client projects in the Norwegian and Barents Seas.
Bengt Magnussen, Polarcus' newly appointed Business Development Manager for Norway is based in the new office in Stavanger.
