Full-Scale Development of Kharasaveyskoye Gas Field to Start in 2019

Gazprom said it will begin the full-scale development of Kharasaveyskoye field in 2019, including construction of a 62-mile pipeline connecting the field's enormous gas reserves to Russia's Unified Gas Supply System.

Gas Production Facility No. 3 at Bovanenkovskoye field

Gas production is slated to start in 2023 at an initial design capacity of 32 Bcm per year. The pre-development project calls for construction of a gas treatment unit, a booster compressor station, clusters of producing gas wells, and transport and power infrastructure. 

To transmit gas extracted from Kharasaveyskoye, Gazprom said it will build a 62-mile (100 km) connecting gas pipeline to Bovanenkovskoye. The Company is already conducting design works to expand the capacities of the northern gas transmission corridor.

Kharasaveyskoye, with estimated gas reserves of 2 Tcm (C1+C2 categories), is located north of Bovanenkovskoye, mostly onshore in the Yamal Peninsula and partly offshore in the basin of the Kara Sea.  

Currently, two gas production facilities are successfully operating at Bovanenkovskoye field, which forms the basis of the Yamal center. This year will see the launch of the third and final gas production facility, which will bring the field to its design production capacity of 115 Bcm of gas per year.

"Bringing Bovanenkovskoye to its full capacity, exploring Kharasaveyskoye and later the other Yamal-based fields, and expanding the northern gas transmission corridor are all crucial activities for the Company,” said Alexey Miller, chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee.
