Marine Acquisition

Environmentally-Focused Exploration

 
 
We operate an ultra-modern seismic fleet incorporating advanced maritime and environmental features including an innovative inverted bow hull design, capable of operating in the most challenging of conditions. Our fleet structure has been optimized to meet the industry's current and future needs and is well positioned for the industry's growing expansion into new frontier regions such as the Arctic and other environmentally sensitive sea areas. We offer, as standard, the full suite of acquisition and imaging services covering 3D/4D seismic, wide and multi-azimuth projects.

Explore Green™

  

Our vision at Polarcus is 'to be a pioneer in an industry where the frontiers of seismic exploration are responsibly expanded without harm to our world'. That vision is underpinned by our values of Responsibility, Innovation and Excellence, instilled throughout the business lifecycle at Polarcus. Polarcus' Explore Green™ provides the framework for responsible exploration on our journey to turn vision into reality. Explore Green™ is central to our culture of Being Polarcus.

The public debate on environmental matters is becoming increasingly vocal across the globe, with a corresponding demand for greater transparency from companies of all types. In our own industry we are witnessing an expansion into new frontiers and environmentally sensitive sea areas as existing reserves diminish and the important search for future global energy continues. This is already driving calls for higher levels of environmental compliance from all participating stakeholders in the value chain, including seismic companies.

True Arctic

 

Exploration in the Arctic and other Environmentally Sensitive Sea Areas ("ESSA") must be performed responsibly and to the highest possible standards using the best available technology. Our Polarcus investment in specialized vessel design, acquisition technologies, operational procedures, accreditations and certifications has resulted in an unparalleled capability to safely operate in Arctic waters. Today, we own and operate the youngest, most uniform and highest ICE-rated seismic fleet.
