Rosneft has finished seismic data acquisition on the East-Siberian-1 block in the East Siberian Sea.
According to the company, the seismic data survey was carried out independently and the amount of 2D works totaled 2000 km.
Rosneft says that in spite of extremely severe ice conditions this year, all work was carried out to full extent and ahead of terms of the licensed liabilities schedule. The survey was conducted from Orient Explorer, a specialized scientific research vessel.
Seismic data acquisition is a reliable method of geologic data survey and due to its high resolution capacity it allows creating very precise geologic models of blocks under analysis, increasing the probability of correct assessment of its oil and gas bearing potential, Rosneft says.
Geologic data acquisition in the East Siberian Sea was carried out in line with all the regulations of the Russian Federation environmental legislation, the company notes.
During the survey, an ice expert was present on the vessel to control ice conditions and prevent risks of ice hazards. The geologic data acquisition is implemented by Rosneft’s subsidiary RN-Shelf-Far East.
The East-Siberian-1 block is situated in the western part of the East Siberian Sea
