«Sevmorgeo» finished the field stage of work on defining of prospective oil and gas bearing potential of Ust-Ob area. As it is informed on the website neftegaz.ru, seismic researches, which had been started this June, were finished ahead of the schedule.
The scientists worked both on the sea and on the land. The total amount of fulfilled seismic profiles makes more than 1000 running meters. According to the information given by the chief of geological and production office of the enterprise «Sevmorgeo» Valery Bezrukov, the preliminary results of the conducted work indicate definite prospects of Ust-Ob area from the point of view of oil and gas bearing potential. But conclusions will be made, and substantiated resource assessments will be given only after the final period of geological survey.
On the basis of the researches conducted before, including with participation of Sevmorgeo, the specialists already expressed suppositions about high oil and gas bearing potential of subsoil on this territory. At that, because of extremely difficult hydrographic situation Ust-Ob area stayed a less studied part of the water areas of the Gulf of Ob during long time. Now the scientists have to analyze the new data and to connect them with other researches fulfilled in Yamal and Gydan and also with materials of deep drilling. The final results of the researches will be known till the end of 2015.
Ust-Ob area takes more than more than 20 thousand square kilometers. It is situated in the south-western part of Yamal and includes the delta of the Ob River and the southern part of the Gulf of Ob.
