Yamal is an absolutely unique region on its oil and gas resources and not only in scale of Russia but in global scale. The deputy director of the Institute on Problems of Oil and Gas of the RAS Vasiliy Bogoyavlenskiy declared about it on the scientific conference on exploration of the Arctic – a new round in development of domestic science and innovations. He is sure that hundreds of extractive fields will be discovered in Yamal.
According to his words, the largest fields of hydrocarbons were discovered on the territory of the region, such as Urengoyskoye, Bovanenkovo and Yamburgskoye. In particular, Yamburgskoye field takes the second place in the world on gas reserves. Of course, it needs to continue to fill in a pipe with gas, to continue development of fields, in which extraction is falling, as he notes. However, he is sure that in the future many unique sea fields will be discovered, their economic effectiveness can be higher that on land.
As we should note, the scientific conference on exploration of the Arctic – a new round in development of domestic science and innovations gathered leading specialists on northern regions in the town Salekhard for two days. Also the program included the report by Vasiliy Bogoyavlenskiy within the session dedicated to danger of appearing of catastrophic and nature-technogenic phenomena in the Russian Arctic.
