EMGS: EMGS - agreement with Nalcor Energy in Eastern Canada for 3D multi-client EM survey

EMGS has signed a multi-client license agreement with Nalcor Energy, the
Provincial Energy Corporation of Newfoundland and Labrador, for the
acquisition of up to 13,500 km2 in a multi-season campaign.
The CSEM survey is expected to begin in June of this year and will target the
Flemish Pass Basin, where recent major oil discoveries have been made. The
survey will collect 4,000km2 of 3D EM data calibrated to these discoveries
and will image key prospects in nearby areas. Integrated data delivery will
be available in early 2015. This survey is supported by industry pre-funding.
"We are very pleased to have Nalcor Energy invest in this important project
for Newfoundland and Labrador. Working closely with Nalcor in this large
region presents a tremendous opportunity for clients and service providers
alike," stated Roar Bekker, CEO of EMGS.
Richard Wright, Manager Exploration of Nalcor Energy, added "The offshore
basins of Newfoundland and Labrador are relatively underexplored,
particularly in the slope and deepwater. Investing in this calibrated 3D
EM survey with EMGS will provide the global industry with a new tool to
identify and de-risk new leads and high- grade existing prospects in this
frontier area.
