Electromagnetic Geoservices ASA (EMGS) has signed a data licensing agreement
worth USD 6.4 million for the provision of 3D controlled-source
electromagnetic (CSEM) and magnetotelluric (MT) data from EMGS's multi-client
data library in the Norwegian Sea. These revenues will be recognised in the
second quarter of 2013. Following this transaction, EMGS has in total secured
close to USD 15 million of multi-client sales from the basalt mapping
programme in the West of Shetland area and Production Licenses 598 and 527 in
the Norwegian Sea.
In addition, EMGS has secured initial pre-funding for the first phase of its
2013 Barents Sea multi-client survey programme which covers approximately
3000km2 of 3D EM data over the western Bjarmeland platform and Fingerdjupet
sub-basin. EMGS's 3D EM multi-client data library in the Barents Sea will upon
completion of this survey cover approximately 27,000 km2. The company expects
that the vessel Atlantic Guardian will complete phase one of the 2013 Barents
Sea multi-client survey programme by the end of June.
