HOUSTON, July 8
– Russian and Norwegian seismic contractors will shoot 7,700 km of multiclient 2D seismic in Arctic seas off northern Russia beginning in August.

The M/V Akademik Fersman will shoot 4,500 km in the Laptev Sea starting in August, then move to acquire a further 3,200 km in the East Siberian Sea by the end of 2011.

The survey is a partnership between TGS-NOPEC Geophysical Co. and Dalmornefte Geophysica Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk (DMNG) under a 2D cooperation agreement made public in January 2011.
