OFG, in partnership with PGS, completes the acquisition of NCS, the owner and operator of P-Cable

June 1, 2022: Further to our earlier announcement on March 9, 2022, Ocean Floor Geophysics, Inc (OFG) is pleased to announce that it has completed its acquisition of NCS SubSea, which provides ultra-high resolution 3D seismic data to the oil and gas and new energy markets via their market-leading P-Cable system.

With the addition of P-Cable technology, OFG now provides the broadest range of marine geophysical data technology and services available in the offshore market today, offering the widest range of sensor solutions from surface, AUV and ROV platforms, combined with unique multiphysics processing, integration, and interpretation capabilities.

OFG was assisted in this transaction by PGS, OFG’s largest shareholder and strengthens the strategic alignment collaboration between OFG and PGS. The PGS New Energy group, which services markets including carbon capture and storage (CCS), renewables (wind farms) and seabed minerals, works closely with OFG as a preferred supplier of ultra-high-resolution seismic, CSEM, magnetic and acoustic surveying products and services.

“OFG is delighted to complete the acquisition of NCS and its P-Cable ultra-high resolution 3D seismic technology. We have seen a significant market interest in P-Cable over the past few months in both traditional oil and gas markets for shallow imaging of reservoirs and geohazards, as well as in new energy markets, particularly for offshore wind surveys. We look forward to offering P-Cable products and services to existing and new customers.” says Matthew Kowalczyk, CEO of OFG.

“This transaction further strengthens the PGS-OFG partnership and expands our combined offering within conventional and New Energy markets. We are building OFG to be a preferred provider of marine site characterization and asset integrity services.” says Artem Lytkin, Vice President at PGS New Energy and an Executive Chairman of OFG.
