EMGS begins Norwegian Sea EM surveys
TRONDHEIM, NORWAY: Electromagnetic Geoservices ASA (EMGS) has been awarded contracts by two exploration and production companies to conduct electromagnetic (EM) surveys in the Norwegian Sea.
The surveys will start immediately and will be carried out using the new purpose-built EM vessel Boa Thalassa. EMGS expects that the work will be completed this month.
The first of two EM vessels built for Boa Offshore AS, Boa Thalassa was delivered in December 2008 from Fosen Mekaniske Verksteder in Rissa, Norway, with the second vessel, Boa Galatea, scheduled for delivery in May 2009 from the same shipyard.
The vessels’ features include sheltered deck and work spaces, a cinema, a helicopter deck, a hospital ward, conference facilities, a gym and modern workstations with broadband connection. EMGS has contracted both vessels to long-term charters.
