Rosneft, ExxonMobil start 2D seismic studies in Laptev Sea

Rosneft and ExxonMobil have started 2D seismic exploration at the Anisinsko-Novosibirsky and Ust-Oleneksky license blocks in the Laptev Sea.

The plan is for the 2D seismic exploration work to acquire up to 6 thousand linear km; the exploration 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 Akademik Fersman will be engaged in the survey (carried out by Dalmorneftegeophysica).

The research will result in the provision of regional data on the 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.

Rosneft obtained licenses for investigation, exploration and production of hydrocarbons within the Anisinsko-Novosibirsky and Ust-Oleneksky license blocks in 2013. The area of the blocks is over 205 thousand square km.
