Last year in Yamal fuel and energy companies extracted 516 milliard and 200 million cubic meters of gas, 21 million and 500 thousand tons of oil and 17 million tons of condensate.
In comparison to 2013 extraction of gas decreased on 5.8 percent, oil – practically did not change, condensate – increased on 9.8 percent. Extraction of hydrocarbons in the region was conducted by 36 enterprises in 96 extractive fields. Affiliated enterprises of Gazprom extracted the biggest amounts of gas – 79.6 percent or 411 milliard and 150 million cubic meters. Gazprom Neft and Rosneft are leaders on extraction of oil. Enterprises of Gazprom Neft extracted 59.2 percent of the total amount of extraction in the region or 12 million and 700 thousand tons of oil last year. The result of Rosneft makes 28 percent of the total amount or 6 million tons. Gazprom extracted the biggest amount of condensate – 68 percent of the total amount of extraction in the region or 11 million and 600 thousand tons.
In Yamal 32 enterprises conducted geological prospecting on 74 licensed areas, 25 companies conducted work on prospect evaluation and exploration on 60 licensed areas. 69 wells are in the process of testing in the production string. 43 wells were started with testing, 47 wells were completed with testing. Field seismic survey was conducted by 16 enterprises on 23 licensed areas. The amount of done field seismic survey with 2D method made 3273.3 running kilometers. It is two times more than in 2013. A new oil, gas condensate field – Kharbeyskoye (Severo-Russkiy licensed area) was discovered in the result of geological prospecting on the territory of the region last year. Its initial reserves make 1 million and 500 thousand tons of oil, 12 milliard and 600 million cubic meters of gas, 700 thousand tons of condensate.
As it is noted in the press-service of the governor of Yamal, extraction of hydrocarbons and conducting of geological survey on the territory of Yamal are stable. The following tasks stay priority for the arctic region: to complete formation of large centers of oil and gas extraction, to increase capacities of production of liquefied natural gas, to create infrastructural communications for providing of deliveries of hydrocarbons to external markets. Now 5 large centers of oil and gas extraction are being formed in Yamal – Bovanenkovo, Tambey, Novoportovskoye, Messoyakha and Kamennomysskoye. These centers will reach their full capacity by 2020-2025.
