Based on materials of Gazprom: The projected capacity of the South Kirinskoye field is 16 billion cubic meters of gas per year

Drilling 3 and 4 wells at the Yuzhno-Kirinskoye field, Gazprom discovered oil, while subsequent oil wells did not reveal

Based on materials of Gazprom: The projected capacity of the South Kirinskoye field is 16 billion cubic meters of gas per year
The Yuzhno-Kirinskoye gas condensate field on the Sakhalin shelf, which fell under the sanctions of the US Treasury and determined the resource base for expanding the capacity of Russia's only natural gas liquefaction plant Sakhalin-2, as well as possible pipeline exports to China, can provide on the shelf 21 billion cubic meters of gas, said a source familiar with the field development flow chart approved by the CDC last week.

According to the latest published materials of Gazprom, the design capacity of the South Kirinskoye field is 16 billion cubic meters. M of gas per year, commissioning period - 2019 year, reaching the designed capacity - 2025-2027 years, Reports Interfax.

Thus, the "shelf" of production is increased by 6 billion cubic meters. M of gas per year.

According to the source, the field consists of 14 blocks, only three of which contain oil. At the same time, the main gas reserves - about 800 billion cubic meters - are located in the center of the field.

To reach the expected "shelf" in 21 billion cubic meters of gas per year, it is necessary to drill about 40 wells. The navigation season on the Sakhalin shelf of the Sea of ​​Okhotsk makes it possible to build one drilling platform 2:3 wells per year. Currently, it is planned to drill to 6 wells per year. Thus, access to the "shelf" is possible for about 6:7 years from the start of drilling that is possible during 2:3 years since the adoption of basic technical decisions.

The discovered oil reserves, which caused the inclusion of the field in the US sanctions list, amount to 40 million tons and are on the periphery. Their extraction is assumed with a coefficient 10-15%, that is, only in the amount of 4 million tons.

So, said the source, having drilled 3-yu и 4-yu Wells at the Yuzhno-Kirinskoye field, Gazprom discovered oil, while subsequent wells did not reveal oil reserves.

The beginning of pilot development of oil reserves, according to the technological scheme, is expected only after 8:10 years after putting gas reserves into development, but this will depend on economic parameters, in particular, on oil prices.
Gas production is supposed to be carried out with the help of underwater mining complexes (MPC), which are not produced in Russia, but Gazprom is carrying out a program for import substitution of this equipment.

Thus, in late September, Gazprom's deputy chairman of the board, Alexander Medvedev, said that Gazprom was not going to postpone the timing of the launch of the projects due to sanctions, and other foreign suppliers would be used to solve the problem, and the program for manufacturing equipment in Russia Number of MPCs.

"If someone hopes that our projects will be hindered or canceled, then it is completely in vain. And this opinion and our partners, "- he stressed.

In turn, the head of Shell in Russia, Olivier Lazar, said that Shell is still in talks to enter the development project of the South Kirinsky field.

The development of oil reserves, the source said, can also be organized using MPC or surface production platforms, but this will depend on oil prices.

According to the source, after the approval of the technological scheme, it is necessary to develop a project for field development, where all costs and so on will be counted.
The source did not rule out that other technological schemes could be developed, as happened with other deposits.

Initially, the South Kirinskoye gas condensate field was not subject to US sectoral sanctions. But the American side added it to the sanction list as a separate decision, since it was reported that this deposit also contains significant oil reserves. Officially, the Russian side did not confirm their presence - due to the complex geological structure of the reservoir and the low level of KIN, only 4 million tons were delivered to the state balance sheet.

The Yuzhno-Kirinskoye field (YUKM) is the largest of the Sakhalin Islands on the shelf, is part of the Kirin block of the Sakhalin-3 project.

“Of course, Yuzhno-Kirinskoye is the main, basic, first field for gas supply to the Far East, and gas supply for the third stage of the Sakhalin-2 LNG plant, and pipeline gas supplies for export. The resource base of Sakhalin-3 is good there, ”said Alexey Miller, the head of Gazprom, in October.

In September, Gazprom and the Chinese CNPC signed a memorandum on pipeline gas supplies to China from the Far East.
