ROSGEO will perform seismic survey on the site prospective as hydrocarbon resource in Kamchatka

ROSGEO will perform regional 2D CMP seismic survey in the East Kolpakovskaya area of the West Kamchatka oil and gas province to identify sites for parametric drilling. The corresponding state contract was signed by the holding and the Department of Subsoil Resource Management of the Far East Federal District. The works are financed from the federal budget.

The site is located in the Sobolevsky district of the Kamchatka Krai. The area under study is 1,110.1 km2. Depth of survey is 3,000-4,000 m.

Geologists must carry out the following objectives: to study the geological structure and evaluate the hydrocarbon bearing prospects of the Neogene-Paleogene and Upper Cretaceous deposits of the site.

In order to do that, the deep geological structure models of the area will be clarified, the sedimentary cover structural features will be studied, the main lithological and facies characteristics will be identified, and the zonation of oil and gas bearing complex reservoirs will be predicted. As a result, potentially oil and gas bearing zones and sites will be identified, and areas with the greatest potential for setting up prospecting works will be determined. Also, specialists will evaluate localized hydrocarbon resources by the Dl category.

400 linear km of seismic survey will be carried out within the framework of the project. The project finalization is planned by the end of 2018.

ROSGEO is a Russian multi-industry geological holding company, which offers a full range of geological exploration services from regional surveys to stratigraphic drilling and subsoil monitoring. The holding company boasts unique expertise, particularly in marine geology and shelf operations.

ROSGEO was established by Decree No. 957 of the President of the Russian Federation dated 15 July 2011 on the basis of Tsentrgeologia, one of the oldest exploration companies in Russia. ROSGEO is a fully state-owned company.

The enterprises within the holding company operate in all eight federal districts of Russia. ROSGEO includes 53 enterprises located across the country. A total of more than 1,000 fields and deposits have been discovered by the holding’s companies, including major hydrocarbon and solid mineral deposits and fields such as the Astrakhan field (2.5 trillion cubic meters of natural gas), the Tengiz field (3.1 billion tonnes of oil), the Kovykta field (1.9 trillion cubic meters of natural gas), the Sukhoi Log deposit (about 2,000 tonnes of gold), the Kursk Magnetic Anomaly, and many others.

 ROSGEO’s subsidiaries have rich experience in implementing projects abroad: dozens of new fields and deposits have been discovered in Asia, Europe, Africa, and Latin America.

 ROSGEO clients include such companies as Gazprom, Rosneft, Lukoil, Severstal, MMC Norilsk Nickel, Itera, NLMK, Sibuglemet, BP, Chevron, and many others.
