Norway: EMGS Strengthens Executive Management Team
David Neser has been appointed Chief Operating Officer and Chief Technology Officer of Electromagnetic Geoservices ASA (EMGS) with effect from 1 May, 2012.
David joins EMGS from WesternGeco, and brings with him over 20 years of experience in operations management, sales, business development and new product development.
In addition, Dave Ridyard has been appointed Executive Vice President of Strategic Business Development with immediate effect. In this capacity he will take on a number of responsibilities associated with achieving EMGS’s sales and strategic objectives.
EMGS, the marine EM market leader, uses its proprietary electromagnetic (EM) technology to support oil and gas companies in their search for offshore hydrocarbons. EMGS supports each stage in the workflow, from survey design and data acquisition to processing and interpretation. The company’s services enable integration of EM data with seismic and other geophysical and geological information to give explorationists a clearer and more complete understanding of the subsurface. This improves exploration efficiency, and reduces risks and the finding costs per barrel.
EMGS has conducted more than 600 surveys to improve drilling success rates across the world’s mature and frontier offshore basins. The company operates on a worldwide basis with main offices in Trondheim, Stavanger and Oslo, Norway; Houston, USA; and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
