Akvaplan-niva presented the GLIDER project at the Special Session on Developing the Resources of the Arctic Continental Shelf. The session was hosted by Gazprom and Norwegian Energy Partners. Also, in July this year, the GLIDER project was presented at the International conference ‘Key challenges in HSE during implementation of geological exploration projects offshore and the ways to solve them’ arranged by Rosneft in Murmansk. Alexei Bambulyak, Regional Manager Russia & Eastern Europe at Akvaplan-niva, took part in both conferences and gave presentations about Akvaplan-niva’s marine environment monitoring experiences in general and the GLIDER project in particular.
