Polish press: Rosneft may disappoint Putin in the project of the Northern Sea Route


The Russian company Rosneft wants to start developing oil fields on the Taimyr Peninsula beyond the Arctic Circle and deliver raw materials to consumers in Europe and Asia along the Northern Sea Route. However, the implementation of these plans may disappoint Russian President Vladimir Putin, writes the Polish online edition Biznes Alert.


The development of fields in Eastern Siberia is associated with gigantic capital investments that are required to build a large-scale infrastructure in the Arctic from scratch. Rosneft is implementing the Vostok Oil project in Taimyr, which unites the already developed fields of the Vankor group and new fields in the north of the Krasnoyarsk Territory (15 fields). As part of this project, Rosneft began drilling prospecting and appraisal wells at the Zapadno-Irkinskoye field.

In addition, the specified project includes the Payakhskoye oil field, which contains more than 1 billion tons of raw materials. Its joint development will be carried out by Rosneft and Neftegazholding of Eduard Khudainatov, former vice president, deputy chairman of the board, member of the board of directors of Rosneft. The companies have already started pilot drilling (test production). The total resource potential of the Vostok Oil project is about 5 billion tons of oil.

It is planned that by 2024 Vostok Oil will produce a total of 25 million tons of oil per year, in 2027 - 50 million tons, and in 2030 - 115 million tons. At the same time, the Payakhskoye field should become the largest in Russia and one of the largest in the world. More than 6 thousand wells will need to be drilled using hydraulic fracturing, the same Technology, which is used in the United States for shale oil production.

In 2019, President Putin ordered to bring up to 2024 million tons of cargo by 80 along the Northern Sea Route. It is easy to guess that the main contribution to the growth of cargo transportation should be made by companies dealing with hydrocarbons, such as Novatek, Gazprom and Rosneft.

However, the construction of port infrastructure in Taimyr will take three more years, and the above-mentioned fields are unlikely to be able to bring the overall production figures to the planned ones by 2024. Most likely, they will not be higher than 20 million tons by this time. This will disrupt Putin's plans to increase cargo traffic on the Northern Sea Route, summed up the Polish media.

    What does Putin and disappointment have to do with it?
    Putin scolds every year for non-compliance and worries about the rise in price, and nothing ...

      “At the same time, the Payakhskoye field should become the largest in Russia and one of the largest in the world. More than 6 wells will need to be drilled using hydraulic fracturing, the same technology used in the US for shale oil production. ”

      “However, the construction of the port infrastructure in Taimyr will take three more years, and the above-mentioned fields are unlikely to be able to bring the overall production figures to the planned level by 2024. Most likely, they will not be higher than 20 million tons by this time. ”

      "... the state (Poland) teaches us life again."

      It is not “us” that teaches, but you, boriz, because you do not know the basics of economics. To build something, you need to invest money, which will be returned if the built will give income. Have you seen the construction estimate? Have you seen arr. the cost of oil at which the project will pay off? And how many decades later? And if oil never rises from the $ 40 price tag, what then? Or are you ready to tighten your trouser belt one more hole? In Russia, there is no longer any easily extracted oil, all huge reserves must be extracted for huge $$$, and even I, Amer, know that. And even more so you need to know ... google in hand ...

        You are talking about the world in the current realities. In a world divided into currency zones, the economy will be different, from the word completely.
        And Poland, if it does exist at all, then on the role of "what you please", thrusting its ambition to hell.
