Ocean and shelf exploration

  • SOGAZ. Providing a steady rise
    Since the times of Peter the Great the Russian Navy and Fleet had always been the background of the country economical, political and military power. The decline in the economic activity of Russia in 1990-s led to a serious underrun of the ship-building industry and ageing of our fleet. The navy construction and modernization programs were frozen for a long period, which led to the decrease of the navy combat readiness and to a number of fatal accidents and wrecks. Today, when we have reached a steady or even rapid economic rise, it becomes clear that our further development is constrained by the level of the ship-building and the navy development.

  • There are not only oil and gas in Arctic but also asters and palms
    In May-June of this year a group of Russian scientists on atomic ice-breaker “Russia” undertook a scientific expedition to the high arctic latitudes. The result was sensational: preliminary express-analysis allows to claim that the Russian continental shelf beyond the borders of 200-mile exclusive economical zone is directly connected to the continental borderland of Siberia. This means that economical zone of Russia can (if the obtained data will convince the UN Commission on the continental shelf borders) increase by no less than 1.2 mln. sq. km! Undiscovered potential resources on this territory are evaluated by scientists in 8-10 bln.tons of conventional fuel.
