Inchcape Shipping Supports PGS’ Seismic Survey Project in Greece

Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS), the world’s leading maritime services provider, has been appointed by Petroleum Geo-Services (PGS) to support a key marine seismic survey project in Greece.

Under the three month research project, ISS Greece will provide marine services to the survey vessel ‘Nordic Explorer’ and two smaller support vessels as they work along the western Greek coast from Patras Port. The national project has been commissioned by the Greek government to try and seek out important new reserves of natural gas.

George Andreakos (ISS Greece and Mednet Operations Manager) is leading the operational team to assist the project in close co-operation with the ISS Offshore Solutions team, headed by Dan Whysall. This is the third contract awarded by PGS to ISS Greece and follows previous surveys in Cyprus.

PGS operates in 25 countries worldwide including regional centres in London, Houston and Singapore.
