Veripos has extended its operations in China with the opening of a new office in Tianjin in association with Tianjin YaXi Offshore Oilfield Technical Services Co Ltd.
The office will oversee the continuing development of Veripos's range of globalised high-precision positioning services for the Chinese offshore market covering Dynamic Positioning, DP Drilling, Seismic Exploration, Survey and Construction applications. Services include the Company's latest Apex and Ultra Precise Point Positioning (PPP) capabilities for decimetre-level accuracies together with proprietary hardware and software supported by a series of dedicated reference stations in Shanghai, Shenzhen and Tanggu.
Among current domestic users of the company's wide-range positioning services is BGP, a subsidiary of the state-owned China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) and one of the country's largest seismic survey companies which also operates worldwide.
The Tianjin office is headed by Wang Yong Chun as China Country Manager and Hing Tong Khoon as Technical Manager with responsibility for further development of Veripos's nationwide activities.
Commenting on the development, Raymond Wong, Asia Pacific Regional Manager of Veripos, said: "The opening of a branch office represents a natural progression of our worldwide positioning operations for which there is now increasing demand from exploration and production organisations throughout mainland China."
