Eni, Rosneft Start Seismic Operations in Barents Sea

Italy's Eni reported Monday that it and its partner Rosneft have begun seismic data acquisition operations in the Fedynsky and Central Barents license areas in the ice-free part of the Russian Barents Sea. The project is part of a wider co-operation agreement that was signed in April 2012 by the two companies.

The 2D seismic survey is planned to take place over 6,100 miles in two license areas. The data from the survey will be collected by a specialized seismic survey vessel.

Eni and Rosneft conduct Russian offshore projects under a joint venture formed between the two companies. Rosneft holds 66.67 percent of the JV, while Eni holds the remainder.
