28.10.2014 Group of Companies “EcoGeoTec” in partnership with Norwegian Company BlomGeomatics finished the first stage of works on ice conditions aviation monitoring in the Eastern-Novozemelskiye licensed areas in the Kara Sea

The first stage on ice conditions aviation monitoring in the Eastern-Novozemelskiye licensed areas in the Kara Sea has been finished.

The first stage on ice conditions aviation monitoring in the Eastern-Novozemelskiye licensed areas in the Kara Sea has been finished.

As a result of exploration drilling at WestAlpha platform (“Universitetskaya-1” well), which is in the Kara Sea, “Rosneft” discovered a new deposit in the Kara Sea. This deposit was called “The Victory” (“Pobeda”). Only one deposit trap contains about 100 million tons, and there are more than 30 of them in general.

WestAlpha Platform was specifically upgraded for operation in special conditions of the northern seas, and it is provided with innovation complex of ice conditions control and iceberg collision prevention. Infrared cameras and modern onboard radars are used in its operation.  

Within framework of complex system preventing iceberg collision “EcoGeoTech” Group of Companies together with Norwegian Company BlomGeomatics ensured ice conditions aviation monitoring in the area of WestAlpha drilling platform operation.

“General success of this unique iceberg collision protection system resulted from using a modern radar aviation monitoring technology by our company”, comments Inna Barchan, President of “EcoGeoTech” Group of Companies.  It is a unique radar locator developed by specialists of “Vega”, which enables receiving precise data about the water surface regardless of the weather and day time, flight height and operation range.  It means that a radar locator enables performing preliminary estimation of the ice object hazard, and specifically developed signal processing algorithm takes into account specific features of equipment carrier track, thus providing high images resolution”. 


Ice conditions and navigation-ship situation operation maps have been made by results of monitoring. Large ice formations and ice barriers position is estimated for a number of key water zones.

The most northern exploration drilling well of Russia “Universitetskaya-1” will operate only in open water during ice-free months – from August till the end of October”.
