In 1972 Yuzhno-Soleninskoye gas field commissioned

Gas deposits in this area were discovered by the Taimyr geophysical expedition in 1969, following the Messoyahskoye field.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. In the exploration process it turned out that Soleninskoe, named after the Solenaya river, consisted of two large deposits. They were named Yuzhno-Soleninsky and Severo-Soleninsky.

The Norilsk combine and the city needed more and more gas for development. Therefore, preparations for the development and operation of the Yuzhno-Soleninskoye field began immediately after the completion of the Messoyaha – Norilsk gas pipeline construction.

It was the next gas workers settlement in Taimyr after Tuhard and Messoyaha. In February 1972, the combine received the first gas from the new field, and in December it was put into operation.

The Severno-Soleninskoye field was the most promising at that time: its first well alone produced about 350 thousand cubic meters of gas per day. This is the most remote field – about 180 kilometers to Dudinka. On December 26, 1982, a torch was lit at it. For three days, the flame illuminated the polar night, then the gas from Severo-Soleninsky was fed into the pipeline. The new field was officially commissioned in early January 1983.

In the last issue of the History Spot photo project, we told that on December 31, 1986, a new drama theater building on Leninsky prospect was commissioned.
