The company «Gazprom Geologorazvedka» finished seismic survey 3D on the shelf of the Kara Sea (Skuratovskoye and Nyarmeyskoye licensed areas). The Marine Arctic Geological Expedition conducted the studies by the request of the company.
The powerful ship «Vyacheslav Tikhonov» adapted for work in arctic latitudes was used for fulfillment of the project. It provided the opportunity to receive seismic data of high quality in the planned time. As it is informed to IA «Sever-Press» in the service on public relations and relations with mass media of «Gazprom Geologorazvedka», the project was finished ahead of the schedule. It was fulfilled on one third more than the planned amount– about 3600 square kilometers. It is an absolute record and considerably exceeds amounts of seismic surveys fulfilled in the Kara Sea during one season by means of vessels of such kind.
The Arctic shelf is the future of Russian gas industry, as the director general of «Gazprom Geologorazvedka» Aleksey Davydov notes. Understanding significance of study and assessment of mineral raw material potential, the company is busy with preparation of new objects, which will replace existing ones on locations of traditional extraction of hydrocarbons. Today the company has necessary experience and technologies of marine exploration, which allow conducting seismic survey in advanced tempos and in the future optimizing amounts and terms of exploratory drilling on water areas of northern seas for more qualitative preparation of discovered fields to development, as he notes.
Already on the stage of designing of this work employees of MAGE designed the integrated system of measures, which allowed conducting effective work in conditions of difficult ice situation. Owing to this, the company managed to fulfill researches without any accidents and with minimal impact on environment, as Aleksey Kazanin, the director of Moscow office of MAGE informs.
