Research vessel Iskatel the second time this year went in flight

The volume of seismic acquisition of 1,000 line kilometres and work is planned for 15 days.

The state service of Geology and subsoil of Ukraine (Gosgeonedr) began an expedition in search of oil and gas in the framework of the Kiliya-Snake ledge in the North-Western part of Black sea shelf. This was announced by acting Chairman of the Department Oleg Kirilyuk, informs a press-Department service on Wednesday, October 17.

The volume of seismic acquisition of 1,000 line kilometres and work is planned for 15 days.

“The priority for testing is scheduled profiles, which cross the structure of the Medusa and Medusa South, objects are expected to prepare for oil and gas exploration drilling in the current year. The marine work will be performed around the clock in continuous mode radiation and reception of seismic signal in the course of the vessel. I hope the only research vessel will stand this test,” – said the head Gosgeonedr.

Research vessel Iskatel the second time this year, went in flight to perform marine geophysical operations, said the press service Gosgeonedr.

Kirilyuk added that the Ukrainian shelf of the Black sea developed only 4%, but scientists suggest that the gas reserves in this area amount to not less than 40 billion cubic meters on the area of 7 thousand sq. m.
