Gazprom can’t increase oil reserves at South-Kirinskoye field

Gazprom hasn’t been able to increase oil reserves of the South-Kirinskoye field in the Sea of ​​Okhotsk, and is unlikely to be able to. This was stated by head of the State Commission on Mineral Reserves Igor Shpurov.

In 2015, the oil exploration at the field failed, exploratory wells didn’t meet expectations, Shpurov said. This year, the drilling will continue, the Commission hopes for its performance, but doesn’t count on this very much. Thus, the holding company will only have to take oil that was found earlier.

However, according to Igor Shpurov, it managed to increase the proven reserves of natural gas. In the past year, Gazprom expanded them to 213.2 billion cubic meters. Today it is the largest field of the Russian gas holding company on the Sakhalin shelf.
