Gazprom approves Eastern Gas Program step

Gazprom managers have approved investments for an important step in the Eastern Gas Program integrating field developments, pipeline, and natural gas production centers in East Siberia and Russia’s Far East (OGJ Online, Sept. 17, 2012).

The investments will cover predevelopment of Chayandinskoye gas and condensate field, transmission pipelines, and a gas production center at Yakutia in the Republic of Sakha.

In the next stage, Gazprom will fully develop Kovyktinskoye gas field, which is southwest of Chayandinskoye in the Irkutsk Oblast, and lay an 800-km pipeline between a production center there and Yakutia. Gazprom estimates Chayandinskoye reserves at 1.2 trillion cu m of natural gas and 79.1 million tonnes of oil and condensate.

The Eastern Gas Program includes plans for additional production centers and a pipeline connecting at Khabarovsk with an existing pipeline between Sakhalin and Vladivostok.
