Gazprom Neft expands its use of green seismic technology, recognised as one of Russia’s best ecological projects in 2020

Gazprom Neft expands its use of green seismic technology, recognised as one of Russia’s best ecological projects in 2020

St.Petersburg, February 3 - Neftegaz.RU. The Gazprom Neft ’s «Green Seismic» and «Green Seismic 2.0» projects won the «Science for Ecology» nomination, awarded the Vernadsky National Ecological Prize.
The purpose of the ecological prize is to recognise and popularise completed projects in environmental protection.

This technology is widely used throughout the company in investigating heavily forested license blocks in the Khanty-Mansi AO, the Yamalo-Nenets AO and the Tomsk Oblast.
The Green Seismic project has made it possible to save more than 4.5 million trees since its launch.

Alexey Vashkevich, Director for Technological Development of Gazprom Neft said:
  • This prize is further testimony to the company’s development of cutting-edge solutions that not only optimise production processes but also address another objective - reducing manmade environmental impacts
  • In developing this technology we took a new look at standard methodologies, making some changes to these
  • As a result, we are now getting high-quality geological information, while preserving forested areas
  • This technology, in fact, brings together 3 of the company’s operational priorities - efficiency, environmental friendliness and safety
Green Seismic is an innovative seismic technology involving the use of wireless recording equipment.
It is installed using compact all-terrain vehicles, avoiding the need to create forest clearings - which, hitherto, could be as much as 5 metres wide.

Green Seismic technology is based on using lightweight technical equipment and wireless radio-telemetry data-logging systems, meaning manmade environmental impacts on forested areas can be reduced.
This innovative and environmentally-friendly approach to seismic surveying preserves forests.
Not having to use heavy-machinery fleets significantly reduces fuel and lubricant consumption, reduces pressure on earth and soil, and improves industrial safety.

2nd generation technology - Green Seismic 2.0 - is designed to allow further use of compact equipment, in this case drilling rigs for operations at access trails where seismic signals are generated.
