PGS’s Ramform Tethys Sets New Towing Record

PGS’s Ramform Tethys, currently working on its maiden project, a multi-client survey over the Aasta Hansteen area in the Norwegian Sea, has achieved a new world towing record, the company informed.

The Ramform Tethys is towing a configuration of 16 streamers, each 8.1 km long, with streamer separation of 75 meters.

The vessel is carrying out a 3D seismic data acquisition with, what company claims, is the largest amount of streamer ever towed behind a single vessel. The total spread adds up to 129.6 kilometers of GeoStreamer.

The previous record was reported in December 2015 by Ramform Titan for towing around 127 km of GeoStreamer.

Per Arild Reksnes, EVP operations said: “I continue to be impressed by the ability of PGS crews to utilize the Titan-class vessels, as demonstrated by Ramform Tethys and her crew on Aasta Hansteen. The performance we see from competent crews and remarkable vessels is a great asset in a challenging market.”

The survey over the Aasta Hansteen is due to be completed in August 2016, with fast track data available four months after the final shot.
