Eystein Eriksrud, chairman of the board of directors, said: “Bjørn Petter Lindhom has extensive experience working within EMGS and the geophysical industry, and with our customers, suppliers and other stakeholders.

“We are very pleased to have been able to identify and appoint such a strong individual from within the Company, and the Board of Directors looks forward to working together with Mr. Lindhom going forward.”
