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.
