The governor of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug Dmitry Artyukhov believes that it is not necessary to be involved in projects on easy gas production, it is necessary to stimulate development of “difficult” reserves in traditional regions of extraction. He reported on importance of working with hard-to-recover gas at Tyumen oil and gas forum.
“It is important for us that with development of new projects going further to the North in the traditional region production there would be preserved maximally. Easy gas will inevitably run low, its extraction will decrease. Our task is to reach hard-to-recover reserves, which are now classified this way, and to make them more accessible. As the state we can create fiscal conditions, stimuli that allow extracting the resource with benefits for both companies and the budget and also for social development”, TASS quotes Dmitry Artyukhov.
According to him, this is important because there are a lot of “difficult” reserves in Yamal. The head of Yamal spoke about prospects of shifting of extraction to the North and necessity to find technological solutions in the sphere of production in the key Nadym-Pur-Taz region, where falling extraction is expected, as the press service of the head of Yamal reports. Dmitry Artyukhov notes that it will be necessary to search for new approaches in the sphere of hard-to-recover reserves, and there are great challenges along new routes.
“Today we need to work to ensure that after 2035 hard-to-recover reserves will allow us to “keep our heads up”, he said.
