Electromagnetic Geoservices ASA (EMGS) has received a contract worth USD 1.5 million for a research project in Brazil. The project will use 3D EM data to map shallow gas hydrates in the Pelotas Basin.

The project is a collaboration between the Pontifical Catholic University (PUCRS) of Rio Grande do Sul and Petrobras' Research and Development Center called CENPES.

EMGS will support each stage in the workflow, from survey design and data acquisition to processing and interpretation. The company's services will enable the 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.

The vessel EM Leader has commenced the survey.
