EMGS to survey several areas offshore western India

Offshore staff

TRONDHEIM, Norway – India’s Directorate General of Hydrocarbons (DGH) has signed a multi-client acquisition agreement with Electromagnetic Geoservices covering a two-year permit to acquire 3D EM data over 325,000 sq km (125,483 sq mi) offshore western India.

The project will cross eight separate tectonic provinces from Kutch-Saurashtra in the north to Ratnagiri in the south.

DGH also will get access to the 3D EM data acquired in the permit area.

“Some of the proposed areas are very challenging to explore due to the presence of basalt from lava flows that created the DeccanTraps,” said Stig Eide Sivertsen, CEO of EMGS. “We believe our EM technology can play an important role in the improvement of sub-basalt imaging in these areas.”
