EMGS Customer Acquires 3D EM Multi-Client Library in Norway

Electromagnetic Geoservices ASA (EMGS) has entered into a data-licensing agreement worth approximately USD 8 million with an oil and gas company, in which the customer will gain access to EMGS’s entire 3D EM multi-client data library on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS).

The agreement includes pre-funding of the ongoing Barents Sea multi-client program and late-sales of previously acquired 3D EM data, excluding data previously licensed by the customer and future EMGS multi-client projects. In addition, the agreement contains an uplift model whereby EMGS will receive an undisclosed sum if the customer is awarded blocks in future licensing rounds in Norway.

“More and more customers are seeing the value of integrating 3D EM data over an extensive area with seismic and other subsurface measurements. This portfolio approach not only enhances geological basin understanding and reduces drilling risk, it has also proven to generate new leads that would not have been identified using traditional exploration tools alone,” says Roar Bekker, EMGS chief executive officer.

EMGS’s data library in the Barents Sea will upon completion of this year’s program cover 22,000 km2, or 69 blocks.
