Exploration drilling in the Barents Sea

OMV Norge, the Norwegian daughter of the international oil- and gas company OMV, plans exploration drillings in the field PL 537, about 196 kilometres southeast of Bear Island, searching for hydrocarbons. The depth of the Barents Sea in this area is near 400 metres.

The Barents Sea is biologically very productive and ecologically sensitive. It is highly important for large seabird populations, marine mammals and the fishing industry.
