ROSGEO will perform 3D seismic survey in the Kara Sea under the order of Gazprom Geologorazvedka

JSC ROSGEO has won the open request for proposals for the selection of a contractor for 3D field seismic surveys in the Leningradsky and Nyarmeysky license blocks of the Kara Sea for the needs of LLC Gazprom Geologorazvedka. The relevant tender evaluation report has been posted on the website of the electronic trading platform. The tender commission of PJSC Gazprom has recognized the application of JSC ROSGEO as the best.

The main objective of the work is to obtain high-quality seismic data in the volume of 1,650 sq. km on the full offset area within the license blocks. The surveys will provide the study of the geological structure of the area of work on the Cretaceous and Middle Jurassic deposits, with which the main part of the oil and gas potential is associated.

The scientific-research vessel Akademik Primakov will perform the work. The vessel, acquired by the holding company in 2017, tows up to 16 seismic streamers. The scientific-research vessel Akademik Primakov has a high sea endurance and is able to operate in remote water areas.
