TRONDHEIM, Norway -- Electromagnetic Geoservices ASA (EMGS) has launched its second purpose-built EM survey vessel, the BOA Galatea. The vessel was built by Bergen Group Fosen and is leased from BOA Offshore on a long-term charter.

BOA Galatea will join EMGS’ other 3D EM vessel, BOA Thalassa. Each vessel has the capacity to carry 200 receivers and offers two high power source systems.

The vessels feature a sheltered deck and work spaces, advanced on-board processing system, helicopter deck, hospital ward, conference facilities, and modern workstations with broadband connection.

"We have experienced a breakthrough for our 3D surveying services over the last year, and our new vessels are especially designed for this purpose,” says Roar Bekker, CEO of EMGS. “EM data resulting from 3D acquisition provides superior data quality and can be more easily integrated into the exploration and production workflow, and interpreted alongside other subsurface information.”
