NOVOSIBIRSK, June 7 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s gas giant Gazprom has signed an agreement with the Siberian branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the administration of the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District to set up a research centre on the Yamal Peninsula this year.
The yet-to-be centre will conduct for Gazprom additional geological surveys on the Yamal Peninsula to study prospects for gas production and works at offshore fields in the Kara Sea and the Laptev Sea, the head of the Siberian branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Alexander Aseyev, told reporters on Friday.
“I think that by this autumn the Yamalo-Nenets research centre will be created. It will be headquartered in Nadym and will have its branches in Salekhard and Novy Urengoy,” the academician said.
The Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District is one of Russia’s leading regions in oil and gas reserves. There are over 130 hydrocarbon fields there.
The Siberian branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences was established in 1957. The centre incorporates research centres in Novosibirsk, Tomsk, Krasnoyarsk, Irkutsk, Yakutsk, Ulan-Ude, Kemerovo, Tyumen and Omsk. Moreover, there are separate institutions in Barnaul, Biysk, Chita and Kyzyl.
