WOKING, UK – Spectrum Geo has started a 7,000-km (4,349-mi) multi-client seismic acquisition survey in the Turkish sector of the Black Sea, in partnership with China’s BGP.

Jevon Hilder, Spectrum’s vp for Mediterranean and Middle East, said: “Our studies have identified significant potential for hydrocarbons in the eastern Black Sea. These new data will provide explorers with a better insight into the presence and location of those essential ingredients required to promote exploration of hydrocarbons in the Black Sea.”

Turkey’s Energy and Natural Resources minister Berat Albayrak added that Turkey will explore its entire offshore area. “Turkey will be the start of the new era in relation to energy and drilling activities,” he said.

Acquisition is expected to take three months to complete with final pre-stack time migration products due to be available in 1Q 2019.
