Gazprom discovers new field on Sea of Okhotsk shelf

September 22, 2016, 13:15

In the course of geological exploration of the Kirinsky prospect in the Sea of Okhotsk, a prospecting and appraisal well was drilled in the Yuzhno-Lunskaya structure within the Sakhalin III project. As a result, a substantial gas and condensate inflow was reported, signaling the discovery of a new field.

As soon as the well is tested and the geological information is analyzed, the reserves estimates for the new field will be submitted to the Federal Subsurface Use Agency for the purpose of their approval and inclusion into the State Register of Mineral Reserves of the Russian Federation.

Background

As part of the Sakhalin III project, Gazprom is engaged in the geological exploration of three licensed blocks: Kirinsky, Ayashsky, and Vostochno-Odoptinsky. Within the Kirinsky block, Gazprom also discovered the Yuzhno-Kirinskoye and Mynginskoye fields.
