Rosneft has completed its 2015 geological exploration program at offshore licenses.
Seismic surveys using 2D method covered 20,434 line km in waters of the Kara Sea, the Chukchi Sea, and the Laptev Sea. For the first time 2D seismic exploration was carried out with support of an integrated information system, a joint development of the Company and the Arctic Research Center, enabling a real-time monitoring of ice conditions and keeping track of the location of the ice edge as well as the dynamic features of drift-ice fields and ice bodies.
This approach made it possible to extend the operations time window and to move the surveys further north to the areas of active drift-ice fields.
The 3D seismic acquisition covered 2,710 sq km in waters of the Pechora Sea and the Sea of Okhotsk.
