Siberian geologists will study hydrocarbon deposits in the Arctic on the platform «North Pole»

Novosibirsk geophysicists have received a grant from the Russian Science Foundation to develop new methods of searching for minerals in the Arctic. Studies are planned to be carried out on the ice self-propelled platform (ISPP) «North Pole», which is currently drifting in the northern seas, the members of the Trofimuk Institute of Petroleum Geology and Geophysics of Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences (IPGG SB RAS) told TASS on Thursday.

The scientists at IPGG SB RAS develop so-called method of probing with vertical currents: a spider-like apparatus consists of electrodes, which ends are lowered into water through holes drilled in perennial ice. Exploration should take place on a drifting ice sheet — the equipment is installed once and it can survey more than 500 thousand square kilometres of the Arctic shelf during the season, while the ice sheet moves around. The method is much cheaper than the standard seismic survey method used today, the one based on the artificial excitation of sound waves and the recording of their vibrations, and the new one also does not harm the fragile ecology of the Arctic.
