#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The Gazpromneft company received a license for the Ust-Yenisey section in the Kara sea, which connects geological exploration assets on the Gydansk and Taimyr peninsulas.
The Ust-Yenisey section is located in the water area of the Yenisey gulf of the Kara sea, its area is almost six thousand square kilometers. The license for the geological study of the site was given to Gazpromneft to search and evaluate hydrocarbons.
The geological exploration has not been carried out at the Ust-Yenisey site before. Search and reconnaissance strategy in this territory will be formed after completing the search wells tests in the Leskinsky site. The company plans to conduct 2D seismic exploration and other geological and geophysical research in the Yenisey gulf.
The new asset connects the opposite sides of the Yenisey gulf, on which the licensed plots on the Gydansk and Taimyr peninsulas belonging to Gazpromneft are located. In total, the Gydansk-Taimyr group includes 29 plots with a total area of about 23 thousand square kilometers.
These territories are distinguished by an extremely low degree of geological knowledge, as well as the remoteness from objects of transport and oil and gas infrastructure. The combination of assets into a single search cluster will increase the efficiency of work on their study.
“We have accumulated rich and successful experience in geological study and development of hard-to-recover hydrocarbons in the Russian Arctic. Now the company is completing the formation of a new large search cluster in the Arctic. It combines 29 sites on both shores of the Yenisey gulf.
The implementation of operating and planned geological and intelligence work in these territories will assess their potential and develop a resource base development strategy. In the future, this search project can become one of the key mining clusters of our company”, said Alexander Dyukov, the Gazpromneft chairman.
In January, This Is Taimyr wrote that a 25 millionth ton of oil was obtained in East Messoyaha.
