On the 24th of April the governor of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug Dmitry Artyukhov visited production objects of “Gazprom Geologorazvedka”. In particular, the delegation being headed by the governor of the region visited the North-Tambey and Malygin license areas.
It should be noted that gas reserves of Tambey and Malygin fields located in the north of the Yamal Peninsula were put on the state balance of the Russian Federation in early 2018. During the year geological prospecting work on the peninsula was continued.
The company has been operating in Yamal for more than five years. More than 20 hydrocarbon deposits were discovered during this time, and further exploration of deep horizons of Tambey field allowed increasing the amount of gas reserves considerably.
The director general Aleksey Davydov notes that the initial assessment of reserves of the Tambey group of fields was almost three times underestimated. “According to our estimates, this is the largest discovery in gas industry at least in the latest 10 years. Behind the scale of the discovery there is the scale of tasks. 18 wells have already been drilled, 5 are in testing, several new deposits have been discovered”, Davydov said.
In the next three years on the territory of the region the company “Gazprom Geologorazvedka” will conduct the big amount of operations in 3D seismic exploration, the total area of which will be more than 4 thousand square kilometers. Specialists of “Gazprom Geologorazvedka” will have a lot of difficult and interesting work in Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug.
As the head of the region Dmitry Artyukhov notes, the region and the company jointly set extensive tasks. This is not only seismic exploration, but also exploration drilling.
“You can hear how the well, which was recently drilled, lives. This is the future that will appear in Yamal in the coming years. The extractive fields are assessed by science from the point of view of future development as colossal. These are “fields-trillionaires” that impress with their reserves, about what we have recently reported to the President. Of course, this is not only the future of gas production of Yamal; it is noticeable on the global scale — for improvement of energy security of our country and for deliveries to foreign countries. There is still the huge amount of work to be done, we see the ways that partners use — it is a high-tech company with the most modern equipment. It manages to do the huge amount of work in the short period of time”, said Dmitry Artyukhov.
The governor also marked how culture of attitude to the land of Yamal has changed.
“Today we saw how seismic equipment was set. This is the huge area of work, and by agreement, the local population stops traveling with reindeer for this time. And all this is in the process of normal human dialogue: the company, in its turn, meets halfway, helps with fuel and other issues”, the head of the region estimated interaction between northerners and gas-prospecting workers.
