Rosneft rounds-up Barents Sea arctic seismic shoot as winter approaches

13th October 2014

Rosneft has finished performing comprehensive geophysical exploration, including seismic data acquisition 3D and gravimagnetic survey on the West-Prinovozemelsky licensed site on the continental shelf of the Barents Sea

Rosneft rounds-up Barents Sea shoot as winter approaches
This data will be used when preparing to drill oil and gas prospect objects and will allow minimising geological risks while searching for hydrocarbon crude reserves

The scope of work totaled 2,800 square kilometre and involved the use of the scientific research vessel Geo Caribbean.

As a result of geologic data acquisition unique information on resources geology in the range of prospect under research was received. This data will be used when preparing to drill oil and gas prospect objects and will allow minimising geological risks while searching for hydrocarbon crude reserves.

3D seismic data acquisition is one of the basic and most productive geophysical methods used to research geological aspects of reserves. Due to its high resolution capacity, it allows creating very precise geologic models of analysed sites.

Geologic survey in the Barents Sea was conducted in full compliance with all requirements of Russia’s environmental legislation, the influence on the environment corresponded to all standards.
