Hope for oil in Mediterranean
Turkish Petroleum Corp.(TPAO) carries on with the seismic studies it recently initiated in Iskenderun Gulf.
Within this framework, a seismic research ship conducted studies at the eastern shores of the gulf, TPAO stated.
By the help of signals sent by the research ship to the depths of the sea and analysis of water samples, the ship examines whether any oil springs or natural gas sources exist in the region.
The research ship will continue its activities at different areas of the gulf, starting from tomorrow.
If productive petroleum reservoirs are discovered thanks to the information to be collected with these studies, officials will decide whether or not to conduct drilling activities in the region.
