Gazprom Neft subsidiary Gazpromneft-Sakhalin has accomplished offshore 3D seismic works on the Pechora Sea, on the Dolginskoye oil discipline and the Severo-Zapadny licence block. The completion of greater than 5,000 sq. kilometres of investigations considerably exceeds the corporate’s obligations underneath the licences for these property. These seismic works have concerned applied sciences and tools designed or modified to be used within the Arctic, and have been undertaken by trendy analysis vessels of the best ice class — ICE-1A, fitted out with tools distinctive to Russia and permitting detailed and high-quality seismic information to be secured. The outcomes obtained by means of these seismic works will take away any main subsurface uncertainties and permit Gazprom Neft’s subsequent geological prospecting programme on the Pechora Sea to be put in place.
The Pechora Sea is a sea on the northwest of Russia, the southeastern a part of the Barents Sea. The western border of the ocean is off Kolguyev Island, whereas the japanese border is the western coasts of Vaygach Island and the Yugorsky Peninsula, and the northern border the southern finish of Novaya Zemlya. The sea blocked by floating ice from November to June, is sort of shallow, its common depth being solely 6 m. (Source: Gazprom Neft)
