According to Russia’s current production level, oil reserves will last for 59 years and natural gas will last for 103 years.Be interviewed RBK The Minister of Natural Resources, Alexander Kozlov (Alexander Kozlov) pointed out that if you invest in geological exploration, you can increase these reserves.
According to him, along with the depleted deposits, there are still some deposits that have not yet been fully received. The minister said: “In any case, it is necessary to conduct geological exploration, including in hard-to-reach places.” According to data from the Central Dispatching Office of the Fuel and Energy Consortium, Russia’s oil and gas condensate production fell by 8.6% in 2020. 516.8 million tons. In 2019, Russia broke the post-Soviet record, reaching 568 million tons of oil and natural gas. Condensate. Last year’s natural gas production was 692.33 billion cubic meters.Meter
In early April 2021, the head of the Federal Underground Soil Administration (Rosnedr) Yevgeny Kiselev (Yevgeny Kiselev) said “Rossiyskaya Gazeta”Russia’s oil reserves will be sufficient for 58 years, of which only 19 years will be profitable. He added: “But these are conditional indicative indicators. With the development of technology, this limit will continue to be pulled back.” He pointed out that oil reserves will be sufficient “indefinitely” and that oil and gas will be sufficient every year. The increase in reserves exceeds volume production.
According to him, natural gas reserves should be sufficient for more than 60 years. Kiselev pointed out: “We don’t see a big problem here. Now, the recovery rate of natural gas is increasing, and we will go deep into the formation, which is more difficult to work.” The depletion of resources in traditional natural gas production areas has led to people in the Arctic, Siberia The eastern part and the northern part of Yamal were looking for natural gas, where new transportation and production infrastructure was established.
