The joint working conference of representatives of the local self-government and the management board of “Gazprom Geologorazvedka” took place at the administration of Yamalskiy district. The participants discussed organizing of geophysical research in Tambeyskoye field and Malyginskoye license area.
On this territory within three years the company will conduct 3D seismic exploration, the total area of which will be more than 4 thousand square kilometers. The information is given to a correspondent of the news agency “Sever-Press” in the service on public relations of the company. The purpose of geophysical research is to clarify the contours of the fields and to assess the prospects of gas content of the Senonian upper layers and lower Cretaceous and Jurassic deep layers.
Information on the technical component of the project, which has been already started this autumn after the beginning of mobilization of equipment, was presented within the conference. The participants also discussed issues of environmental protection and respect for interests of representatives of nomadic indigenous population.
“The company has been working on the territory of Yamalskiy district for more than 5 years. During this time more than 20 hydrocarbon deposits were discovered, and additional exploration of deep horizons of Tambeyskoye field allowed almost three times to increase the amount of gas reserves, more than four times — gas condensate. This is equivalent to the discovery of a new supergiant field. At the present time the estimate of gas reserves in Tambeyskoye field reached 5 trillion 500 milliard cubic meters. Wide-azimuth seismic survey with high density of data recording will be conducted in such amount for the first time on the territory of Yamal, and we understand our high responsibility to ensure that the results of implementation of the project would bring considerable benefit both to economy of the country and economy of the region. Special attention will be paid to observation of requirements of environmental legislation and interaction with indigenous population”, Aleksey Davydov, the director general of “Gazprom Geologorazvedka” said.
The head of Yamalskiy district Andrey Kugaievskiy notes that “Gazprom Geologorazvedka” showed itself as a reliable partner of the district.
“Being based on many years of experience of our cooperation, we are confident that all agreements will be observed. Increase in the resource base due to geological exploration on the territory of the municipality shows potential for its further socioeconomic development, what means that it will have a positive influence on the level of population’s life in the district”, he said.
