Polarcus and PGS in OZ Patent Clash

Seismic player Polarcus said it has accepted service of court proceedings filed by PGS Australia relating to the acquisition of seismic data on 3 surveys in Australia and the processing of that data.

According to the company, these proceedings follow 3 years of intermittent correspondence from PGS in response to which Polarcus, supported by patent counsel, has provided evidence that Polarcus’ activity did not intersect the patent.

“The claim will be vigorously contested and has no impact on any project outside Australia,” Polarcus said.

PGS’ principal claim under its patent has previously been held to be unpatentable by the United States Patent and Trademark Office and Polarcus said it intends to challenge the validity of all relevant aspects of PGS’ Australian patent.
