           EMGS : EMGS receives LOI for contract extension in Asia

Electromagnetic Geoservices ASA (EMGS) is pleased to announce that it has
received a Letter of Intent (LOI) for an extension to the ongoing USD 35
million contract in Asia. The value of the contract extension is at least USD
15 million, which brings the total contract value to a minimum of USD 50
million. It is expected that the vessel BOA Thalassa will complete the entire
work programme, including the contract extension, in October 2013. Final
confirmation and award of the extension is subject to the customer's internal
Tender Board approval.

"This contract extension is an endorsement of our services and shallow water
capabilities. Furthermore, it confirms the value that 3D EM delivers to
regional exploration. This is a new application of EM which we believe has
considerable market potential going forward," said Roar Bekker, CEO of EMGS.
