EMGS Expands Mapping Project to Vøring Basin, Norway

Electromagnetic Geoservices ASA (EMGS) has in response to industry demand expanded the previously announced multi-client basalt mapping project in the West of Shetland area to the Vøring Basin in the Norwegian Sea.

The vessel Atlantic Guardian will therefore continue to acquire controlled-source electromagnetic (CSEM) and magnetotelluric (MT) data through to the second half of November 2012.

EMGS’s data will be used with seismic data to determine the thickness of basalt layers and to improve the understanding of regional trends in geologically challenging basins with significant potential for hydrocarbon reservoirs.

The project is fully pre-funded and may be expanded subject to additional industry commitment and vessel availability.

EEMUA subsea engineering course: materials selection and corrosion control

This two and a half day training course is recommended for both discipline and project focused engineers from a variety of backgrounds who want to gain an understanding of the fundamental principles for selecting and specifying materials of construction for subsea equipment, and for corrosion control during deployment, commission and operation. The course is based on the EEMUA User Guide to subsea materials selection and corrosion control, EEMUA Publication 194.

It is operated in association with the Society for Underwater Technology (SUT). Permanent employees of EEMUA and SUT member companies are entitled to a 20% discount off the standard course fee.
