28 June. Day 6. Oil around us

Our target for the day is Gorevoy Utes area. This is a unique locality where oil is seeping at a depth of ~850 m. This locality was studied even by the “MIR” manned submersible. Despite all efforts, so far, it remains unclear what is the extension of this seepage area. Fresh oil slicks continuously appear on the water surface surrounding the boat.
