EMGS (Electromagnetic Geoservices) has been awarded a $27million contract by BG Group for data acquisition work in Uruguay.
The work is expected to begin next week using the vessel EM Leader and will last around three months.
Roar Bekker, chief executive of EMGS, said: “We are delighted to start working for BG in Uruguay on this survey.
“This contract provides us with a substantially improved backlog and we look forward to further developing our relationship with this customer.”
Earlier this month, TGS and EMGS agreed to expand a recent $8million contract in the Barents Sea.
