In the period from June 18th to August 1st, 2013 "SEISMOSHELF" company performed 2D 4C(3C) multichannel seismic acquisition in the area of the Pechora Bay and its adjoining land. The Russian-made seismic complex "Turtle-500" ("SEISMOSHELF" LLc, Saint-Petersburg) based on autonomous marine bottom modules (nodes) was used as a seismic recording system. The nodes are designed for recording of 4C seismic data at depths up to 500 m in seismic acquisition on basis of reflected and refracted waves; in landscape conditions that don't allow the passage of a seismic vessel with a streamer, in shallow water, in places where it is difficult or impossible to use an ocean bottom cable, as well as on adjoining land and for seismic monitoring purposes. The survey was carried out in full and high-quality multi-component seismic data has been obtained for the project area. Investigations done have confirmed that Russian innovation technology can be applied for transition zone and shallow water seismic projects.
