GAZPROM MAMES ITS LARGE GAS FIELD DISCOVERY IN THE KARA SEA
Gazprom made the decision to give a new field discovered in the Yamal gas production center the name of 75 Years of Victory (75 Let Pobedy).
The field was discovered by the Company within the Skuratovskaya prospect on the shelf of the Yamal Peninsula in the Kara Sea. The total recoverable reserves of the field exceed 200 billion cubic meters of gas. In terms of reserves, the field can be classified as large.
In 2019, Gazprom drilled prospecting and appraisal well No. 1 within the Skuratovskaya prospect in the Kara Sea, which had been discovered earlier through seismic exploration. In the course of well testing, commercial gas inflow of 746,000 cubic meters per day was obtained.
Based on well construction results, a hydrocarbon reserves estimate was promptly prepared. In March 2020, the relevant report was submitted to the Federal Agency for Mineral Resources.
In 2019, Gazprom discovered the Dinkov and Nyarmeyskoye fields on the shelf of the Yamal Peninsula in the Kara Sea. The Company also has subsurface use licenses for the Leningradskoye and Rusanovskoye fields on the Kara Sea shelf.
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 from the Laptev Sea to the east by the Severnaya Zemlya archipelago. It is named after the Kara River which is now relatively insignificant but which played an important role in the Russian conquest of northern Siberia. Its main ports are Novy Port and Dikson
