The head of the Ministry of Natural Resources has calculated how many years Russia will have enough gas and oil reserves. If the gas reserves last for 103 years, then the oil reserves are almost half.

According to RIA News, the calculation of reserves was carried out by the head of the Ministry of Natural Resources Alexander Kozlov. According to him, there will be enough oil for 59 years and gas for 103 years. At the same time, the minister stressed, these are average figures taking into account the current level of production and without prospects for geological exploration. Also, Kozlov added, some fields have not yet received full load.

To increase reserves, the minister proposed developing geological exploration, including in remote, hard-to-reach places, as well as developing the Northern Sea Route, which will be loaded mainly with hydrocarbons.

Earlier, the head of Rosnedr, Yevgeny Kiselev, summed up the results of the inventory of oil reserves. According to him, they will be enough for 58 years at the current level of technology, but the profitable ones will run out in 19 years.
