The head of the RAS arrived in Crimea with a three-day visit. In his work schedule, including a meeting with the leadership of the Crimean oil and gas company Chernomorneftegaz.
We want to raise the topic of the development of the Crimea shelf. Studies that were previously conducted, and those that are currently being conducted, generally say that there can be quite large reserves of gas on the Crimea shelf. We propose to conduct a comprehensive study, which includes diagnostics using underwater means, such seismic diagnostics, and diagnostics using space means, in order to determine the most likely areas where further drilling is needed to find gas-bearing areas on the shelf,Sergeyev told the agency.
According to him, specialists from the Russian Academy of Sciences arrived on the peninsula, who are confident that there are gas fields on the shelf. Now you need to correctly put the search work.
And Chernomorneftegaz is just the company that is interested in further development if gas bearing layers are found. Conceptually, it is about conducting a comprehensive study in order to determine some kind of guidance for subsequent drilling,explained Sergeev.
He added that the leadership of the Crimea supports this project.
