Yurubcheno-Tokhomskoye field (Krasnoyarsk region)

The importance of oil and gas for the Russian Federationit is difficult to overestimate. This raw material for the production of fuels and lubricants, and for the chemical industry, and fuel. The presence of a large number of oil and gas condensate fields allows the country not only to provide the domestic market with the necessary products from oil and gas, but also to export it to other countries of the world.

Deposits of the Krasnoyarsk Territory

Oil and gas production in the region isstrategic importance in its economic and social development. The Krasnoyarsk Territory is located in Eastern and Central Siberia and has rich deposits of minerals. In particular, it has 25 oil and gas fields. This makes about 25% in the structure of the industrial complex of the region. The largest are Vankor, Icemum, Tagul and Yurubcheno-Tokhomskoye fields. According to Rosneft, this is one of the very promising areas that should be developed in the near future. This is not only the emergence of new oil and gas pipelines and economic profits. This is also the development of the Krasnodar Krai, which until now have not been inhabited and developed.

Some information about the deposit

According to the geostructural feature of the Yurubcheno-TokhomskoyeThe deposit (Krasnoyarsk Territory) refers to the Baikit anteclise in the west of the Siberian Platform (antekliza - raising layers of the earth's surface over a vast flat area that develops over several geological periods). In turn, Baikit anteclise refers to the Leno-Tunguska oil and gas province.

According to experts Yurubcheno-TohomskoyeThe oil and gas condensate field has oil deposits of about 321 million tons in the category C1 + C2 and 387 billion cubic meters of gas in the category C1 + C2. Natural resources are located at a depth of about 2.5 kilometers. The saturation of the seams with oil and gas is uneven. In the south, intervals do not exceed a thickness of 72 meters, and in the north they reach 172 meters.

Characteristics of deposits

The formation of minerals continuedseveral geological periods. Yurubcheno-Tokhomskoye field has a complex structure. The distribution of oil and gas bearing strata is limited by clay sediments and outcrops of crystalline rocks. The strata are shielded by clay-carbonate rocks. Water-contact contact was found at depths of 2.07 kilometers, and gas-oil contact - 2.02 kilometers.

However, the amount of raw material is so great even inconfirmed sites of occurrence that it makes sense to develop, even if unconfirmed layers are poor in resources and do not blow the necessary profitability of their extraction.

Field development project

Oil and gas were discovered back in the 1980s,but the decision to extract it was made only a few years ago. In 2007, JSC "Tomsk Research and Design Institute of Oil and Gas" carried out a technological project. According to him, the Yurubcheno-Tokhomskoye field will be developed in three stages.

On the first one, exploration andindustrial wells, complex fractured reservoirs have been created, installation of a gas compressor station, oil collection and delivery points, a raw material preparation plant, etc. has been ensured.

The second and third stage is the continuation of the development of extraction, which allows to increase production capacity and launch the petrochemical complex of the Krasnoyarsk Territory in 2020.

The second importance for oil production isYurubcheno-Tokhomskoye field. Rosneft transferred powers to develop its subsidiary OAO East-Siberian Oil and Gas Company. The first stage of development is planned for 2014-2019. For this period of time, 170 wells with horizontal endings should be drilled. The priority site should be launched in 2017. By 2019, it is planned to receive 5,000,000 tons of oil per year. It also assumes the use of associated gas - by re-injecting into strata and for technological needs.

Thanks to the fact that in 2007 theand approved the project, the construction of the Kuyumba-Taishet trunk pipeline in 2013 was started. This pipeline should connect the Yurubcheno-Tokhomskoye field with the highway "Eastern Siberia - Pacific Ocean". It is through this pipeline that oil will be pumped to the places of further use and redistribution.

Prospects for development and complexity of field development

The construction of new facilities is alwaysdevelopment of the adjacent region. The development of the Yurubcheno-Tokhomskoye field will not only create new jobs for the residents of the Russian Federation. This is also the development of socio-economic infrastructure.

It should be noted that the locality where theYurubcheno-Tokhomskoye field (photos can be found on sites with the appropriate subjects), little habitation and requires large investment deposits. For example, only the development of oil deposits in this region will require investments worth 215 billion rubles, according to preliminary estimates. And this is not counting the social sphere. However, the multiplier effect of not only the incomes of contractors for the construction of an oil and gas pipeline is expected. This is also an opportunity for the development of the woodworking industry, and the creation of petrochemical enterprises for the utilization of associated petroleum gas. In addition, the project involves the construction of equipped roads with a minimum length of 700 kilometers and the electrification of settlements through which the oil and gas pipeline will pass.

To develop the Yurubcheno-Tokhomskoye depositis planned only in conjunction with the Kuyumbinskoye field. And this means that not only the Krasnoyarsk Territory, but also part of the Irkutsk region, will fall into the sphere of economic development. But the federal budget will receive tax revenues of 1.3 trillion rubles, which can positively affect the development of the regions.
