The Federal Agency for Mineral Resources approved the expert opinions of the State Reserves Commission with regard to the discovery by Gazprom of new hydrocarbon fields on the shelf of the Yamal Peninsula, namely the Dinkov and Nyarmeyskoye fields.

The Dinkov field is situated within the Rusanovsky licensed block in the Kara Sea. The field is unique in terms of gas reserves: its recoverable reserves in the C1+C2 categories total 390.7 billion cubic meters.

The Nyarmeyskoye field is located in the Nyarmeysky licensed block in the Kara Sea. In terms of gas reserves, it is a large field with the recoverable amount of 120.8 billion cubic meters in the C1+C2 categories.

Background

Vasily Dinkov (1924–2001) was an eminent figure in the history of the Russian fuel and energy complex. He served as Minister of the USSR Gas Industry in 1981–1985 and as Minister of the USSR Oil Industry in 1985–1989.

Gazprom secured the subsurface use licenses for the Rusanovsky and Nyarmeysky licensed blocks in 2013. Since then, 3D seismic surveys covering 5,790 sq kms have been carried out within these blocks, with two prospecting wells drilled in 2018.

Gazprom also has subsurface use licenses for the Leningradskoye and Rusanovskoye fields on the Kara Sea shelf.
