The first year of this multi-year project proved a resounding success with the full 660 km 2D seismic work plan being completed ahead of schedule. Early completion allowed for the acquisition of approximately 370 km of additional 2D seismic data during the work season. Detailed planning is now well underway for the 2007 work season, which will begin in April.
Kerry Doyle, President, Veritas Caspian, commented, "Our current acquisition plans are for a five year program over the entire open acreage of the Kazakh sector of the Caspian Sea. The success of the first season is a tremendous affirmation of Veritas Caspian's capabilities and commitment to this project. Operations in the Caspian Sea present many challenges, but the efforts demonstrated by the crews have been outstanding and are beginning to illuminate the high potential of this key hydrocarbon region."
