Petrogrand has signed a contract with Integra-Geophysics for seismic work


Following the acquisition of the Nizhne-Paninsky license area in December 2010, Petrogrand has now taken the next step and commissioned Integra-Geophysics to perform seismic work on the area.


The contract was signed as the result of an open tender process in which several well qualified companies participated.


The seismic surveys will be carried out during winter and spring and a preliminary interpretation of the results will be performed by the end of May - beginning of June 2011. The result will lay the ground for exploration drilling which will take place during the winter season 2011/12.


Through its Russian subsidiary, Petrogrand acquired the Nizhne-Paninsky license in the Tomsk region in an auction on 10 December 2010. The license area was discovered in the 1960's and the State Committee for Natural Resources has determined that the reserves reach 8.7 million tons, according to the Russian classification (approximately 65.2 million barrels).
