Chinese companies will take part in the development of coal deposits in Yakutia
Within the framework of the working visit of Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich to the People's Republic of China, Beijing met with First Deputy Premier of the State Council of the People's Republic of China Zhang Gaoli.
The parties supported the development of cooperation between the companies of the two countries in the joint implementation of a number of projects, including the development of the Srednebotuobinsk oil and gas and Elginsky coal deposits in the territory of Yakutia.
The Srednebotuobinskoye oil and gas condensate field, discovered in 1970, is located in the Mirninsky region of Yakutia. Currently, the Srednebotuobinskoye oil and gas condensate field is licensed for its development by three subsoil users - the northern block of OJSC ALROSA-Gas, the central block - LLC Taas-Yuryakh Neftegazodobycha, and the eastern block - CJSC ROSTNEFTEGAZ. Oil reserves at the Srednebotuobinskoye oil and gas condensate field are estimated at 70 million tons, natural gas - 170 billion cubic meters.
The Elga coal deposit is the largest coking coal deposit in Russia. Located in the south-eastern part of Yakutia. Coal reserves are 2,2 billion tons. The license for the development of the north-western part of the Elga deposit is owned by OAO Mechel. Coal mining began in August 2011. In 2012, a through traffic was opened along the 321-kilometer railway line built by Mechel, which connected the field with the Baikal-Amur Railway.
