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.

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;
