A worker directs a seismic exploration truck atop a potential Arctic gas field

A worker from gas and oil exploration company "Seismorazvedka" guides an all-terrain "Vibrator" in the Arctic tundra in the Nenets Autonomous Region. The vehicle, made by French company Sercel, uses seismic vibration to test the structure of the earth crust below to help prospect for oil and gas. Billions of tonnes of gas and oil have been found in the region in the last decade.
