"The Power of Siberia" will supply to China 38 billion cubic meters of gas

Two neighboring regions: Yakutia and Irkutsk Region in the coming years will become the main suppliers of blue fuel for the Power of Siberia product pipeline.

At the Kovykta deposit in the Irkutsk region, test work has already begun. According to expert estimates, the gas supply here is two and a half trillion cubic meters.

Under the action of high pressure gas will go to the east. At the Kovykta field, in the Irkutsk region, test work began. With the help of 66 well, specialists can find out how much hydrocarbon lurks in the depths of this region.

The tower is about 60 meters high. But this is just the tip of the iceberg. A well with a depth of more than three kilometers was drilled inside. It was at this depth that geologists discovered rich gas deposits.

Kirill Smirnov is from the Yakut village Vitim. For him, this is not the first watch in the Irkutsk region. On your site, the safety engineer studied all the processes that were taking place.

Seven hundred kilometers from Kovykta to the north-east of the country. Here is the Chayanda gas field. There are almost a half trillion cubic meters of blue fuel in its depths, half of them have already been explored. The flame of torch blazes over the 321-81 well. Thus, experts evaluate the properties of the reservoir.

“At the moment, hydrodynamic research is being carried out. The torch allows you to calculate the parameters of the formation, to determine its physical properties. The main thing is that it makes it possible to determine the reservoir properties and the gas distribution area, ”said Sergey Lodin, head of the well testing and development department of Gazprom Geologorazvedka.

Both fields will form the basis of a unified gas transmission system in the east and the country as a whole. Experts note that today Western Siberia and the Far East are relatively well equipped. But it is Power of Siberia that can literally revive the gigantic distances between these regions.

Possible profits are also calculated by large enterprises. The construction of the Power of Siberia should entail the development of the region's infrastructure. Thousands of jobs are on the way.

Now Power of Siberia is the largest gas transmission project in the world and the most ambitious. It will take place in extreme conditions through swamps, rocks and taiga. 38 billion cubic meters of gas will be supplied to China annually for 30 years. The total amount of the contract is about $ 400 billion.
