Paper Summary

Here we present the synthesis of available/published geological and geophysical data on Barents Sea region, including TGS/NGP seismic data (2005) and TGS/VBPR Geophysical Atlas of Barents Sea (2004). The Barents Sea region is one of the most hydrocarbon-rich sectors of the Arctic shelf, with well-known oil, gas-condensate and gas fields in both the Norwegian (Snøhvit, Goliat) and Russian sectors (Shtokman (one of the largest discoveries in the world), Ledovoe, Ludlov).
