DGH expects hydrocarbon exploration area to double by 2020

The Government of India is expecting hydrocarbon exploration area to double to 300,000 sq km by 2020. While the first round of licensing under OALP has already increased the exploration area to 150,000 sq km last year, the second and third rounds are expected to double this figure. An official from DGH revealed that the access to seismic data has enabled the government to offer new acreages to companies.

Rosneft registers completion of first super-deep exploration and appraisal well

On the Zapadno-Chernomorskaya license area offshore the Black Sea, Rosneft has successfully completed drilling of the first super-deep exploration and appraisal well Maria-1. A unique carbonate structure with 300 m gross interval was discovered while drilling this well which has opened up the possibility to discover large oil and gas fields in the Russian Black Sea waters. This extensive drilling was possible due to comprehensive seismic surveys and geological studies.

Oklahoma introduced stringent rules for fracking explorers

Oklahoma is placing stringent norms which are to be followed for 'fracking' for there has been a study which reveals a new cluster of earthquakes in one of the hottest U.S. regions for drilling. The Oklahoma Corporation Commission has announced that all explorers must use seismic array for monitoring and detecting movement underground. It also lowered the threshold for pausing work from 3.0 magnitude to 2.5.
