Electromagnetic Geoservices ASA (EMGS) has issued Claims against each of (i) Petroleum Geo-Services ASA, (ii) PGS Exploration (UK) Limited and (iii) PGS Geophysical AS (together "PGS") in the High Court of Justice, Patent Court, London, UK. The basis for these Claims is the evaluation by EMGS that PGS has used the Towed Streamer EM in the United Kingdom and Ireland in violation of both (i) European Patent EP (UK) 1 256 019 B2 entitled "Method for determining the nature of subterranean reservoirs" (the "Patent") and (ii) European Patent EP (IE) 1 256 019 B2 (the "Irish Patent"). The evaluation has been based on technical and commercial papers published by PGS as well as other public documents issued by PGS.

EMGS has also sent a warning letter to PGS that similar claims will be filed in Norwegian courts based on PGS' use of the Towed Streamer EM in Norwegian territory infringing EMGS' Norwegian patent NO 324454 8 (the "Norwegian Patent").
