Rosneft jointly with partners from US energy giant ExxonMobil is developing new safety technologies in the Kara Sea where drilling is already planned in August. Drilling rig West Alpha is moving to Russian coast for the purpose.
“To track the movement of icebergs and spot their masses it is planned to monitor them from, outer space, airplanes and drones. Only for fine photos of icebergs from the space we will have to spend an average 120 thousand dollars, so, three or four thousand dollars per a picture,” Izvestia daily quoted deputy director of the Antarctic Scientific-Research Institute of the Federal Service for Hydrometeorology and Environmental Monitoring Alexander Danilov as saying on Tuesday.
In his view, several ice-class ships will have to be hired to clean up the area of geological prospecting from icebergs in the Kara Sea and to drill a well effectively.
“The rental fee of only one icebreaker Yamal which may lead them [ice-class ships] to the place of operation will cost 4.5 million rubles (around $128.2 thousand) daily,” Danilov said.
Three icebreakers will be operating in the Kara Sea “in order to take icebergs away from drilling rig West Alpha to avoid their collision,” Oleg Sochnev from Rosneft said.
“However, ice rocks can turn in useful building materials from a problem,” he said.
