July 09, 2024

The survey, set to commence in the third quarter of 2024, will be conducted using the Atlantic Guardian and is expected to take approximately two weeks to complete. The total contract value, prior to revenue share, is approximately $1 million.

EMGS aims to leverage this project to gain experience and evaluate the potential of incorporating seismic node services into its portfolio. This move aligns with the company's strategy to diversify its offerings and enhance vessel utilization.

EMGS 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 the 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.
