The Polish press spoke about the depletion of traditional oil reserves in the Russian Federation


The reserves of the Russian oil recoverable by the traditional method are running out, and soon Russia will be forced to develop hard-to-recover oil fields (TIR). But when the time comes to develop shale reserves, due to the development of green energy, oil will already cost much less than it is now, and the investments of the Russian Federation may not pay off. Biznes Alert writes about the depletion of Russian "black gold" reserves.


According to the Russian Federal Agency for Subsoil Use, Russia has 18 billion tons of oil reserves of categories A, B, C1. Last year, the country produced 512 million tons of such oil. About 12 billion tons of this raw material (more than 66 percent) falls on the TRIZ category. The deposits used now, which do not require large financial investments, have been developed by about 60 percent.

The Ministry of Energy reports that after 2022, a decrease in production from the currently exploited fields can be expected. By 2035, volumes may fall to 310 million tons, which is more than half of what was mined in 2019.

In a way, the salvation for Russia can be the shale extraction of energy resources. According to the US Energy Department, the Russian Federation possesses the largest oil reserves in the world, produced in an unconventional way. However, due to a possible drop in the price of "black gold", with a low rate of import substitution in oil production, as well as with a long period of financing of such projects, the implementation of such plans may be questionable.

    I don't even want to discuss Polish glitches about Russia. It would be better if the Poles figured out what they would pay off the national debt of their own country, living on a subsidized needle that is not eternal.

      I do not agree, the funniest of all are Ukrainian publications, they write news in the State Department. Maybe even Jennifer Psaki herself laughing

    Ha, Poles and K.
    It's been known for a long time, about 10 years. Easily recoverable oil is running out in Russia. Only it will end for another 30 years.
    In the meantime, the oligarchs are already investing in oil shale (which they scolded earlier) and more difficult to obtain in the north.
    Norway is out, in the north it rocks from the bottom, and nothing. (though there is socialism, damn it, Norwegian)

    And then the Chinese will invent and master something ...

    Three oil fields in the Kara Sea have just been registered in Russia. Deposits, according to the classification adopted in the Russian Federation, are classified as unique. A total of 7,8 billion bar. oil brand Arctiс light plus 1,5 trillion. cub. m of associated gas. The oil is of such quality that it will cost $ 10-15 more than Brent. Higher in quality than Sibirian light, which is higher in quality than Arab light. The sulfur content does not exceed 0,2%. Arab light - 1,97%.

    Dmitry Kobylkin, Minister of Natural Resources and Environment of the Russian Federation:

    In this regard, I am worried not even about production and reserves, but about sales markets.

    Nikolai Patrushev, Secretary of the Russian Security Council:

    Western sanctions against Russian mining companies "pose serious problems" for the oil and gas sector, which has become dependent on foreign technology.

    Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak:

    Hydraulic fracturing technologies, which are actively used in the United States, allow to dramatically increase production from wells, "revitalize" old fields and extract hard-to-reach oil from shale rocks, which are currently absent in Russia.

    Poland's existence makes progress difficult. The Russians would have switched to the export of hydrogen a long time ago, but the psheks cannot, in any way, complete the modernization, begun by Stalin, of refineries and other thermal power plants built by the Russian tsars. From what it is necessary to drive "traditional" oil ... until the end ...
