During the meeting, the parties discussed the ongoing efforts for creating the Irkutsk gas production center (GPC).
To achieve that, Gazprom is constructing a section of Power of Siberia stretching from Kovyktinskoye to the Chayandinskoye field in Yakutia.
It was noted that:
- the work to prepare the Kovyktinskoye field for full-scale production is going on schedule
- Development drilling continues
- the filling works are underway for the top-priority well clusters
- 2 comprehensive gas treatment units and access roads are being built at the moment
Currently, pipeline Power of Siberia receives natural gas from Chayandinskoye, the largest field in Yakutia (1.2 trillion m3 of recoverable gas reserves).
Kovyktinskoye is the largest field in eastern Russia: its recoverable gas reserves amount to 1.8 trillion m3.
