Electromagnetic Geoservices ASA (EMGS) announces that it has secured pre-funding to start a multi-client 3D EM campaign in the Barents Sea, ahead of Norway’s 22nd exploration licensing round.
Data acquisition will commence in March using the vessel Atlantic Guardian.
Preliminary data deliverables will be available from April 2012 and 3D inverted data will be available from May 2012.
EMGS, the marine EM market leader, uses its proprietary electromagnetic (EM) technology to support oil and gas companies in their search for offshore hydrocarbons. EMGS supports each stage in the workflow, from survey design and data acquisition to processing and interpretation. The company’s services enable integration of EM data with seismic and other geophysical and geological information to give explorationists a clearer and more complete understanding of the subsurface. This improves exploration efficiency, and reduces risks and the finding costs per barrel.
EMGS has conducted more than 600 surveys to improve drilling success rates across the world’s mature and frontier offshore basins. The company operates on a worldwide basis with main offices in Trondheim, Stavanger and Oslo, Norway; Houston, USA; and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
