The planned start of the survey is mid-April 2013 and, weather permitting, will continue until mid-October 2013.

The seismic acquisition will be carried out by the seismic vessel “M/V BGP EXPLORER” , which will be accompanied at all times by guard vessel “M/V ALK EXPLORER”.

The proposed survey consists of 18,000 km of a full fold 2D seismic survey in offshore waters beyond the 12 nautical mile limit, and extends into international (high seas) waters.  The survey vessel “M/V BGP EXPLORER” will tow a single solid 10km streamer.  The vessel will travel at 4–5 knots and the streamer will be located approximately 10 metres below the surface.
