GAZPROM DISCOVERED TWO LARGE GAS FIELDS IN THE KARA SEA
In 2017, an exploration well drilled by Gazprom on the Leningradskye License area located in the Kara Sea expanded the resource potential of the structure by more than 850 million cubic meters of gas to a total of 1.9 trillion cubic meters. The year afterwards, Gazprom was back in the area to drill in the nearby Rusanvoskoye area.
The Russian company now confirms that the well drilled at the Rusanvoskoye revealed 390 billion cubic meters of gas. The discovery has been named after Soviet Minister of Energy V.A Dinkov and is located at 72 degrees North about 100 km off the west coast of the Yamal Peninsula.
The Kara Sea is part of the Arctic Ocean north of Siberia. It is separated from the Barents Sea to the west by the Kara Strait and Novaya Zemlya, and the Laptev Sea to the east by the Severnaya Zemlya archipelago.
With the discovery of the V.A Dinkov field, the semi-submersible Nan Hai Ba Hao, known as Namhai VIII has made two of Russia’s biggest offshore findings over the last decade. The accumulated resources of the discoveries amount to more than 1,2 trillion cubic meters of natural gas.
Nanhai VIII owned by China Oilfield Services Limited (COSL) is a deepwater semi-submersible built in 1983 at Okpo shipyard, South Korea, by Daewoo Shipbuilding.
