West Russia

The leader in oil and gas projects is Gazprom. We just do not always see that huge preparatory work which held by subsidiaries of Gazprom – Gazflot and Sevmorneftegaz, and that in the coming years will be embodied in the extracted oil Prirazlomnoye and Dolginskoye in gas condensate field Shtokman, Yamal and Ob-Taz. But the development of energy sector will stimulate regeneration in the North-West Russia engineering, ship repair, construction industry, all types of transport, especially rail and sea, will ensure the growth of employment. If you talk specifically about the Arctic shelf, in the 80’s on the shelf in the Arctic were able to identify 60 local structures, open 11 unique and large deposits. In list of more recent discoveries – three oil fields in the Pechora Sea, 4 gas fields in the Ob and Taz Bays, which allowed increment gas reserves at 4 trillion m3 of oil and 500 million tons Through the use of new technologies in the exploration of the Shtokman gas condensate field could increment reserves of this unique deposit of 400 billion cubic meters, and today its reserves are no longer in 3.2, and 3.66 trillion m3 of gas. In layman question, and that us on these stocks? Where a concrete result? Reasonable question, but the fact is that, firstly from the opening of deposits on the shelf until its commissioning in the middle is 12 years. Secondly, the increase in proven reserves promotes the growth of capitalization of companies and raise the international prestige of the country as a whole.
