Gazprom is preparing a new project for the Arctic
Gazprom Neft has entered into a long-term contract with Gazprom for the development of Achimov oil deposits in the Yamburgskoye field in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District. It was reported by the First Deputy General Director of Gazprom Neft Vadim Yakovlev.
According to the Vedomosti, the agreement was signed last week. This is the first case of such a scheme for the development of a license area without transferring the license itself.
Achimov oil deposits are considered hard-to-recover reserves. They are located deep (3-4 km under the ground) and characterized by a complex geological structure. For comparison: Gazprom produces gas from Cenomanian deposits, which are located much closer to the earth's surface - at a depth of 1.7 km.
