TRONDHEIM, Norway – Petrobras has awarded a $90-million contract to Electromagnetic Geoservices ASA for a range of surveys in frontier and mature basins offshore Brazil.

EMGS says the data acquisition will use the BOA Galatea vessel and will begin as soon as possible. The entire project is expected to last one year.

EMGS says it has strengthened its Rio de Janeiro office, which is headed by Ricardo Perrone, with further EM expertise and processing capabilities to address the Petrobras contract and the growing market opportunities in South America.
