The project, which will involve the deployment of 3D EM data over fields on the Norwegian Continental Shelf, will enable the participating customers to develop an idea about the use of 3D EM data in various scenarios, from early exploration to improved oil recovery.

The company has already set out a 3D EM vessel, Siem Mollie that will acquire data over the Linerle and Valkyrie fields and subsequently over the Snohvit field by using EMGS’s mobile acquisition set installed on the vessel.

The survey, which is scheduled for completion by the end of September, is expected to accelerate the commercial adoption of EMGS’ 3D EM technology by oil and gas companies in the exploration and production phase.

EMGS CEO Roar Bekker said that EMGS has, over the last three years, developed new-generation 3D EM technology, which has triggered customer demand for high-quality, open 3D EM datasets that can be used to calibrate and integrate other geophysical data from well-documented fields.
