DENVER – PGS has contracted to use Kongsberg Seatex AS’ eBird active positioning streamer control on a Ramform vessel equipped with the latest 3D Geostreamer technology. GeoStreamer is PGS’ multi-component towed streamer.

"PGS has over the past years carried out extensive functional and reliability testing of the Kongsberg eBird system to verify it meets our stringent product qualification standards and operational requirements. eBird has fulfilled our expectations and we are now outfitting our first Ramform vessel with a full eBird installation in line with our strategy to standardize on eBird as the primary system for controlling our GeoStreamer 3D and 4D spreads," says Nils Lunde, head of Marine Engineering at Petroleum Geo-Services

Kongsberg’s eBird provides lateral, vertical, and roll control for streamers in marine seismic acquisition.
