EMGS lengthens hire of seismic survey vessel
Electromagnetic Geoservices (EMGS) has agreed to an extended charter hire of North Sea Shipping’s vessel Atlantic Guardian.
The charter, which ran from Sept. 1 to March 1, 2014, has been extended by at least two more years, with three optional one-year extensions.
The vessel owner will perform upgrades to improve fuel efficiency and station-keeping capabilities, probably during a five-week yard stay in the first part of 2014. At the same time, the vessel will be modified to accommodate EMGS’ next-generationseismic acquisition equipment.
