Today, on Friday, July 6, an expedition began to search for oil and gas in the North-Western shelf of the Black Sea. Seismic and geochemical works will be conducted during 15 days, as the Head of Oleh Kyryliuk reported on Facebook.
"Today, on July 6, 2018, the only in Ukraine research vessel Iskatel will set off from Odesa. It will search for oil and gas on the North-Western Black Sea shelf," he wrote.
As it is reported, Iskatel will work within the Kiliya-Zmiiny ledge and Krylovsky curve.
Kyryliuk reminded that the Black Sea shelf in the south of Ukraine was discovered by only 4%. Scientists assume that there are more than 40 billion cubic meters of gas reserves in the area of 7,000 square meters. In the future, the Prychornomor enterprise plans to carry out a complex of geophysical and geochemical research, as well as preparation for drilling perspective objects.
