EMGS eyes revenues potential owing to Barents Sea multi-client library
Following the recent award of ten new production licenses offshore Norway, the geophysical services company Electromagnetic Geoservices (EMGS) expects to generate multi-client revenues, owing to its Barents Sea multi-client library.
To remind, earlier in May, Norway’s Ministry of Petroleum and Energy announced the offer of ten new production licenses in the 23rd licensing round on the Norwegian continental shelf to a total of thirteen companies.
All ten licenses are in the Barents Sea, of which three licenses are in the new area in the southeastern Barents Sea.
Based on these awards, EMGS said, the company expects to realize uplift revenues, net after adjustment for partner’s share of revenues, of approximately $9.5 million from data-licensing agreements related to the company’s multi-client library in the Barents Sea.
The uplift revenues, which will be recognized in the second quarter 2016, are subject to EMGS customers’ formal approval of the awards offered by the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy, the geophysical company added.
“We are very pleased with the results of the 23rd licensing round and, in addition to the uplift revenues, we see significant late sales potential owing to our extensive and well-positioned data library in the Barents Sea,” says Christiaan Vermeijden, CEO of EMGS.
