HOUSTON, June 22
– BP Exploration Co. Ltd. has proposed to shoot 1,800-2,300 sq km of 3D seismic surveys in the Canadian Beaufort Sea in mid-2009.

The Pokak air gun program is to be shot in 70-1,050 m of water on EL 449 and EL 451 about 180 km off the coast from late July to October. The vessel would return in 2010 if it could not complete the program in the 2009 open water season.

Geologic depths of interest are at 4-8 km, BP said in a filing with Canada’s National Energy Board.
