TGS reports net revenues of USD 205 million in Q2 2014, compared to USD 210 million in Q2 2013. Earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) totaled USD 82 million, corresponding to an EBIT margin of 40%. The Company's net pre-funding revenues were USD 60 million, up 39% from Q2 2013.  Backlog of USD 224 million remains near an all-time high level.


"Despite restricted near-term exploration spending as well as the delayed announcement of the blocks for the Norwegian 23rd licensing round, TGS continues to deliver strong results.   Both sales from the existing data library and customer commitments for new projects were strong and our backlog remains near an all-time high level. TGS continues to be well positioned to deliver the data needed by the industry to identify new reserves.  TGS has a strong commitment to deliver shareholder returns through a combination of growth, dividends and share buy-backs," commented TGS' CEO Robert Hobbs.
