On the 20th of March in the videoconference mode the President of Russia Vladimir Putin launched the full-scale arrangement of Kharasaveyskoye field on the Yamal Peninsula. The head of the state congratulated everyone on this significant event.
“In fact, this is one more important step in comprehensive development of the Yamal Peninsula, in development of the modern, powerful center of gas extraction and processing. Much has already been done in this direction. At the end of last year gas production in Bovanenkovo reached the full capacity, projects of NOVATEK on liquefied natural gas are being successfully fulfilled, production sites, settlements for workers are built, gas pipelines are laid, necessary transport infrastructure is created, and it is important that arrangement of these territories is continued”, he said.
According to Vladimir Putin, Kharasaveyskoye field will open up new horizons for development of the branch, for strengthening of export potential of the country, for further gasification of Russia, for growth of the national economy in general.
“The reserves of the field are huge — 2 trillion cubic meters, together with Bovanenkovo — almost 7 trillion. These are enormous reserves. This amount will be enough to extract gas here till 2131. And if to keep in mind that the total reserves on the Yamal Peninsula are over 16 trillion, then, of course, it creates an opportunity to work for many, many decades to come. These are the planetary reserves”, the President of Russia said.
He notes that there is still large and very difficult work on arrangement of the field ahead. At the same time, he is sure that specialists will cope with all the tasks at the high professional level, since “Gazprom” has already accumulated considerable experience in fulfillment of such large-scale projects.
