MOSCOW, September 6 (Itar-Tass) —— The Dolginskoye deposit in the Pechora Sea will be developed from 2020, Vladimir Vovk, the chief of Gazprom’s department for offshore deposits development technologies, told a news conference on Tuesday.
He said that as the deposit stretches for 90 kilometers, it is difficult to emplace on it enough platforms, wells and facilities. “Engineers have much work ahead,” he said.
Vovk said that even though the development of the deposit must begin by 2020, the prospecting has not yet been completed and the feasibility study cannot yet be endorsed. This is also connected with the lack of required equipment.
“It was planned that prospecting will continue with the use of the new Russian-made drilling rig whose construction should have been completed at Zvyozdochka plant back in 2009, but our plants have their limitations, so we, regrettably, change schedules,” Vovk said. “We will get the equipment not sooner than next year,” he added.
The Dolginskoye deposit whose reserves are estimated at 130-140 million tons will be one of the deposits to be developed with the use of the Prirazlomnaya platform that was recently emplaced in the Pechora Sea.
