GEOLOGICAL EXPLORATION OUTSIDE THE REPUBLIC OF TATARSTAN
The License Fund outside the Republic of Tatarstan has 32 licenses, including:
- 16 licenses for oil and gas production
- 13 for geological exploration and production of oil
- 3 licenses for geological research.
In 2017, geological exploration was carried out by 7 subsidiaries and affiliated companies in Samara, Ulyanovsk, and Orenburg Regions, Nenets Autonomous District, and the Republic of Kalmykia.
OUTSIDE THE REPUBLIC OF TATARSTAN, ONE DEPOSIT—VOSTOCHNO-KAROCHAYEVSKOYE—WAS DISCOVERED IN 2017.
The deposit is open in the Samara Region with C1 + C2 geological reserves in the terrigenous sediments of the Upper Devonian, with 352,000 tonnes, of which 145,000 tonnes are recoverable. Efficiency – 1,340.7 RUB/tonne
A LICENSE IS OBTAINED FOR BITUM TESTING SITE AT THE KUZMINOVSK-1 AREA OF SUBSOILS.
The site is located in the Samara Region, with 1.76 million tonnes of promising oil resources of the D0 category and 1.6 million tonnes of forecast oil reserves of the D1L and 11.2 million tonnes of the D1 category. It is planned to prospect the site for deposits of conventional and hard-to-recover hydrocarbon reserves.
In 2017, seismic exploration work was carried out using the 2D CDP method: 20 line km; 3D CDP method: 75 km2. The total volume of prospecting and exploration drilling for 2017 was 11,873,000 meters.
In 2018, the Company is planning prospecting and exploration drilling outside the Republic of Tatarstan on the scale of 9,964,000 tonnes of geological material, performing 74.6 km2 of 3D seismic exploration work.
