On May 31, OMV and partners DNO, Equinor and Spirit Energy spudded appraisal well 6506/11-11 S with the Deepsea Bergen rig targeting the Middle Jurassic
and Lower Cretaceous Iris and Hades discovery made in 2018 with well 6506/11-10.
The volcanoes developed in the Jurassic
period, between 180 and 160 million years ago, and have been subsequently buried beneath hundreds of meters of sedimentary -- or layered -- rocks.
"By studying the organismal adaptations and environmental change occurring in the Jurassic
we can learn much about how life 'found a way'.
times, the researchers say, the area would have been a landscape of craters and fissures, spewing hot ash and lava into the air, and surrounded by networks of river channels, evolving into large lakes and coal-swamps.
World Expedition' to our portfolio of experiences is an exciting move for the company," said chief executive Martin Higginson.
Inspired by Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment's 'Jurassic
World' blockbuster films, this spectacular new adventure features Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and BD Wong reprising their film roles as Owen Grady, Claire Dearing and Dr Henry Wu.
The experience is further enhanced by the all-new elaborately themed "Raptor Encounter," where Blue, the beloved Velociraptor from the Jurassic
World movies, engages with guests in daring face-to-face encounters, along with the addition of two new realistic dinosaurs -- Baby Raptor with her handler and a life-size, life-like Triceratops.
"Working with a world-class production team and Universal filmmakers, we have extended the Jurassic
World canon with a new story that can only be told through this live, arena spectacular as we bring full-scale dinosaurs to generations of fans around the globe," said Juliette Feld Grossman, chief operating officer of Feld Entertainment, in the release.
As far as the plot is concerned, the film simply can't wish away what happened towards the end of the sequel, "Fallen Kingdom." That ending led to a lot of fans speculating on whether the upcoming "Jurassic
World 3" will feel more like "Godzilla" and "Planet of the Apes," with the dinosaurs on the loose, terrorizing cities.
Just to recap, Jurassic
Park - starring Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum - is based on Michael Crichton's novel and is the ultimate battle between man and dinosaurs.
Park fans will have the chance to see 'Jurassic
Jeff' in London until the statue is removed on July 26.
