Dolphin Group's 3D vessel Polar Duke has entered into production on her first project for TGS Nopec ASA in the Norwegian sector of the Barents Sea.

Polar Duke was taken on charter in Stavanger on May 10th and mobilised directly on prospect in less than ten days and is presently operating with 10 streamers of 6,000 meters length.
