WGP Contracted to Aid Russian Studies on the Arctic Shelf

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 4/11/2012, Location: Asia

SMG has been licensed to study the Mendeleyev Ridge during the summer of 2012. WGP will be providing seismic data acquisition services aimed at collecting additional material to support the Russian proposal to the UN Commission on the Law of the Sea in order to determine the limits of the continental shelf.

The project will be utilising WGP's highly adaptable Portable Modular Source System (PMSSTM), which has previously been successfully utilised by ION's GeoVentures group in a preliminary arctic survey on behalf of the Russian Government undertaken during 2011.

With such opportunities emerging within the oil and gas industry, WGP always remains conscious that every project it undertakes is approached with the highest standards of safety for both personnel and the marine environment.

'This project demonstrates WGP's continuing strategic aim to develop and deliver niche solutions that can be successfully deployed in environmentally and geopolitically challenging parts of the world.' said Mark Burnett, CEO, WGP.

As well as operations, technical crew and equipment, WGP's involvement in the project also includes the conversion and installation of the suite of geophysical equipment including the PMSSTM. Mobilisation onboard the icebreaker vessel 'Dikson' is scheduled to begin 1st June 2012. The project is expected to run for five months.
