A total of approximately 14,300 km of seismic will be acquired in this area, and according to the plan, the work will continue until mid-October.
The area to be surveyed is in the previously contested area along the border with Russia. The acquisition is taking place on assignment from the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy. This is the first time Norwegian authorities have acquired seismic data in this part of the Barents Sea.
