VERIPOS has been awarded an extension to its existing master services contract with Bergen Oilfield Services (BOS), one of Norway's principal seismic survey contractors operating worldwide. The extended contract covers continuing supply of a complete range of positioning services and equipment for BOS's three specialist seismic exploration vessels, BOS Angler, BOS Arctic and BOS Atlantic.
Utilising VERIPOS' Ultra Precise Point Positioning service for decimetre-level accuracies supported by Verify-QC software for real-time monitoring and quality control of positioning data, each vessel is also equipped with VERIPOS LD2-G2 integrated mobile receiver systems. Supported by VERIPOS GNSS positioning, BOS has recently completed a 10,000km 2D seismic data acquisition program offshore Guinea, northwest Africa on behalf of Hyperdynamics Corporation. Meanwhile, the Norwegian company's BOS Angler vessel is due to carry out major 3D surveys for ONGC and Cairn off the east and west coasts of India.
Matthew Gordon, the newly appointed Regional Manager for VERIPOS for EAME ( Europe, Africa and Middle East) stated: "We appreciate the confidence that BOS has shown in VERIPOS services and support which has been a contributor in their decision to extend the contract and we are pleased to continue our excellent working relationship which has been built up over the last few years."
