Veripos, world leaders for supply of high-precision GNSS positioning facilities to the offshore industry, has been awarded a three-year exclusive contract by Neptune Marine Services (NMS) of Perth, Western Australia for provision of services in support of its worldwide operations involving engineering solutions carried out on behalf of oil and gas, marine and renewable energy concerns.
The contract, which represents a continuation of a long-standing working relationship between the two companies, covers the provision of Veripos’s Standard GPS augmentation service in addition to its Ultra and Apex2 precise point positioning facilities, the latter using both GPS and Glonass constellations. All three services will in turn be supported by Veripos’s Verify QC processing software for real-time and post-processing assessments of data.
Neptune, one of Australia’s leading subsea engineering organisations, has additional bases in South East Asia, the Middle East and Europe. Through its survey division, Neptune Geomatics, the company provides Rig Positioning, Geophysical, Geotechnical, Construction Support and Data Management services to a wide oil and gas client base throughout the world.
Commenting on the contract award, Richard Turner, EVP Commercial of Veripos, said: “It further consolidates our working relationship with one of Asia Pacific’s leading offshore organizations and independent survey providers, ensuring that we remain a key supplier of high-quality positioning services throughout the region and beyond”.
Jason French, General Manager of Neptune Geomatics added: “In the current survey market where high quality and cost effectiveness are the key to success, Veripos deliver on their promises, continue to meet our demands, and exceed our expectations. We are happy to be continuing this successful relationship”.
