Alexander Medvedev Launches Development of Turonian-Age DepositsBack to news
Gazprom and Severneftegazprom have joined together to launch a trial dual well at the Yuzhno-Russkoye field (Geolog Settlement, Yamal-Nenets Autonomous District). The well, which is in pilot operation, targets the development of the field’s Turonian-age gas deposits.
Speaking at the launch ceremony on 7 April, Gazprom Export’s Director General and Chairman of Severneftegazprom Board of Directors Alexander Medvedev said, “Development of the Turonian-age deposits in Russia has been long postponed because of technical difficulties. Today there are all conditions for the Turonian to significantly contribute to the gas production in Russia.”
“The Yuzhno-Russkoye field is one of the basic resource bases of the Nord Stream gas pipeline,” Medvedev continued. “Development of the Turonian-age deposits will in the future provide for new volumes of gas supplies and contribute to the top-priority objective of the Gazprom Group – ensuring stable and uninterrupted supplies to Europe." Medvedev and Director General of OJSC Severneftegazprom Stanislav Tsygankov launched the project by pressing a symbolic start button at the launch ceremony.
