Ukrgasvydobuvannya opens new gas field

Naftogaz subsidiary Ukrgasvydobuvannya has opened a new gas field with a potential one billion cubic meters of blue fuel.

Testing of the well with a depth of almost 4,000 meters was completed in August. Before drilling, experts conducted a 3D seismic survey. 

Geological information indicates that the new field may have reserves totaling one billion cubic meters of gas.

This is not the first discovery of new hydrocarbon deposits this year. By increasing reserves, we are creating the foundations for the sustainable growth of domestic gas production," commented Oleg Tolmachev, acting general director of Ukrgasvydobuvannya.

He also added that Ukrgasvydobuvannya will continue geological exploration efforts at this new site in parallel and plans to drill new wells.

Background: Naftogaz Group has launched two high-rate wells with a total flow rate of 430 tcm of gas per day.
