Total, OMV, Repsol Conclude Black Sea 3D Seismic Acquisition

France’s Total, Austria’s OMV and Spain’s Repsol completed their 3D seismic acquisition campaign in the 1-21 Han-Asparuh exploration block in Bulgaria’s Black Sea after 2010 days of work.

“The interpretation of the data will enable us and our partners to define the drilling locations for the two exploration wells that are planned during 2015 and 2016 in order to assess potential hydrocarbon resources in this part of the Black Sea,” Jaap Huijskes, OMV Executive Board member responsible for Exploration and Production, said in a note released on Wednesday.

The exploration, which OMV branded the largest acquisition in the entire Black Sea, has been carried out in the 1-21 Han-Asparuh block, an area of 14,220 km2 in the Bulgarian sector.

Total, with 40% interest, is the operator of the drilling phase. OMV and Total hold 30% each.
