EMGS Launches 2nd Purpose-Built 3D EM Vessel
Electromagnetic Geoservices ASA (EMGS) has launched its second purpose-built EM survey vessel in order to enhance hydrocarbon
exploration across the world. The new vessel, the BOA Galatea, was built by Bergen Group Fosen and is leased from the owner BOA Offshore on a long-term charter.
As previously communicated, EMGS's core vessel fleet will consist of the two purpose-built 3D EM vessels BOA Thalassa and BOA Galatea.
Each vessel has the capacity to carry 200 receivers and offers two high power source systems, making these the most productive and efficient vessels available in the industry.
Roar Bekker, EMGS chief executive officer, commented, "We have experienced a breakthrough for our 3D surveying services over the last year, and our new vessels are especially designed for this purpose. EM data resulting from 3D acquisition provides superior data quality and can be more easily integrated into the exploration and production workflow, and interpreted alongside other subsurface information. We therefore believe that our purpose-built 3D EM vessel fleet will provide an improved basis for industry adoption of EMGS's technology."
The vessels' features include sheltered deck and work spaces, advanced on-board processing system, helicopter deck, hospital ward, conference facilities and modern workstations with broadband connection. Surveying efficiency and flexibility is increased by the vessels' high speed, large fuel volume, extensive storage capacity, efficient fuel consumption and extended weather window.
