VIGO, Spain -- Petroleum Geo-Services ASA has named its new 3D seismic vessel the PGS Apollo.

The Apollo has 10 full-length streamers and 12 streamer reels, and targets the medium-capacity market, says PGS.

Several new equipment handling features and maritime components are implemented on this Ramform design ship, reports PGS, including the low-resistance hull for increased fuel efficiency, a new source handling solution, and a central location of the streamer reels.
