2009 develoPmentS January through March 2009
In early March 2009, PGS received for- mal notification by Factorias Vulcano, the shipyard building the Arrow new- builds, that it intends to deliver hull number 532 to satisfy the shipbuilding contract specified for hull number 533.
In mid-March, PGS announced a co-operation agreement withTGS Nopec to combine PGS DeSoto Canyon survey withTGS Hernando survey in the Gulf of Mexico.
Late March 2009, WesternGeco cance- led the charter party for hull number 532 based on information received and Arrow notified the yard that it cancels the shipbuilding contract for new-build 532.
By the end of March, the yard sends a notice of “commencement of arbi- tration,” disputing Arrow’s right to terminate the shipbuilding contract for new-build 532.
Jens Ulltveit-Moe has notified the PGS Nomination Committee and Board of Directors that he intends to step down as Chairperson of the Board of PGS.
