Gazprom will receive a new site on the shelf of the Sea of Okhotsk
In the conditions of the moratorium on the distribution of land on the Arctic shelf of Russia, Gazprom expands its presence on Sakhalin. The company will receive a license for the little-studied Central Border area on the shelf of the Sea of Okhotsk, part of the Sakhalin-6 project.
As the Kommersant, due to the weak fulfillment of licensing requirements for already issued sites in Russia, a moratorium of the Ministry of Environment for issuing new licenses on the Arctic shelf is currently in effect. However, it does not apply to Sakhalin, therefore, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev signed an order to provide Gazprom with a new section.
The area is part of the Sakhalin-6 project, its resource base is estimated at 600 million tons of oil and 190 billion cubic meters of gas. At the beginning of 2000, Rosneft refused to develop it. The reason was unprofitability. After that, another project participant, Alfa-Eco, sold a number of Sakhalin-6 sites.
