ROSNEFT & EXXON STARTED
Rosneft and ExxonMobil started 2D seismic exploration at the Anisinsko-Novosibirsky and Ust-Oleneksky license blocks in the Laptev Sea. 2D seismic exploration work plans to acquire up to 6 thousand linear km, and will last until the end of October.
Alongside geophysical research a license wide bathymetric survey of the seabed surface with multibeam echosounder will be carried out to define depth and study seabed topography. A modern research vessel Academik Fersman will be engaged in the survey (carried out by Dalmorneftegeophysica).
The research will result in the provision of regional data on geological structure of resources within the work cluster, which will try to detect promising oil-and-gas objectives for further possible studies.
Geological prospecting work in the Laptev Sea is being carried out ahead of license commitments subject to all requirements of environmental protection legislation of the Russian Federation.
Geological prospecting work at the resource license block in the Laptev Sea is arranged by Rosneft subsidiary RN-Shelf-Far East.
