In addition, TGS will increase its investment in all the 17 blocks.

“The expansion of this agreement confirms our strategy to integrate our 3D EM data with seismic data and sell this as a combined dataset. We are encouraged by TGS’ interest in our library and look forward to further develop our relationship with TGS,” says Roar Bekker, CEO of EMGS.

The multi-client surveys are already completed. The contribution from TGS will amount to around USD 3.4 million and will be booked as a reduction of the carrying value of EMGS existing multi-client library in the fourth quarter 2013.
