“We are pleased to see late sales of completed multi-client data in Q1 2024 showing good progress both compared to the preceding quarter and the same quarter of last year. Further, we saw strong sales of surveys in the work-in-progress phase, supporting the early sales rate of approximately 116% in the quarter. We continue to show good operating performance in our OBN business, although the activity level, as expected, remained seasonally low in Q1 2024. The strong start to the year, combined with a continued tight global oil market and increasing exploration ambitions among our customers makes me optimistic for the remainder of the year. With the PGS merger, which we expect to close on or around 1 July 2024, TGS will be perfectly positioned to support our customers’ exploration ambitions and capitalize on what we think will be a multi-year upcycle,” says Kristian Johansen, CEO of TGS.
