The Urengoyskoye oil, fuel and condensate discipline was found in 1966 within the northern a part of the Tyumen Region.
The deposit Urengoy is without doubt one of the most gigantic on the planet. It is inferior in quantity to the deposit “North / South Pars” within the waters of Qatar and Iran. The estimated fuel reserves are about 10 trillion m3.
The Urengoiskoye deposit is included within the West Siberian oil and fuel province and consists of 4 deposits of hydrocarbons: Cenomanian, Neocomian, Achimov and Middle Jurassic. The construction of the deposit accommodates rocks of assorted ages, from the Jurassic to the Paleogene. The advanced construction of the deposit is related to focal uplifts – northern, central and southern, that are wealthy in fuel deposits. Within the boundaries of the deposit, fuel, fuel condensate, fuel condensate-oil and oil deposits have been found.
An exploraqtion properly drilled within the Purovsky district marked the start of intensive manufacturing of pure fuel, which started in 1978.
The deposit is characterised by the next parameters: size – 220 km and an space of 6 thousand km2. January 1984 marked an vital occasion: Urengoy fuel started to be exported to Western Europe. The amount of extracted hydrocartbons grew yearly: from 9 billion m3 fuel in 1978 to the following, 2.5 occasions extra, and in 1986 the volumes reached the designed capability. Since 1997, in addition to fuel wells, oil wells have been commissioned.
In 2008, they started to develop Achimov deposits wealthy in fuel and condensate.
Within a brief timeframe, the Urengoy oil, fuel and condensate advanced was created within the harsh pure and weather conditions of the Extreme North. Gas manufacturing began on April 22, 1978.
At current, the Urengoyskoye discipline prospects hinge on the event of hard-to-reach Achimov deposits. The reserves of the Achimov deposits in Gazprom Urengoy’s fields quantity to over 1 trillion cubic meters of fuel and 400 million tons of condensate.
The North-Urengoyskoye fuel discipline was found in 1966 and developed by Novatek. It started manufacturing in 1970 and produces pure fuel and condensates. The complete confirmed reserves of the North-Urengoyskoye fuel discipline are round 5.58 trillion cubic toes and manufacturing is slated to be round 407.eight million cubic toes/day
The citry of Novy Urengoy helps the exercise of the Urengoyskoye discipline. The metropolis is located on the Tyumen–Novy Urengoy railway line. Traveling north from Tyumen, Novy Urengoy is the final station of significance. Noyabrsk is the earlier station of significance.
Novy Urengoy is alongside the Salekhard–Igarka Railway, “Dead Road “. Extending from Novy Urengoy to Stary Nadym is one part of the Railway of Death that’s used as an vital freight railway.
