Gazprom to Start Production Drilling at Kovyktinskoye Field in 2019


A working meeting between Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee, and Sergey Levchenko, Governor of the Irkutsk Region, took place in St. Petersburg today.

The parties discussed ongoing and future cooperation, noting the strategic importance of the Irkutsk Region for Gazprom. There, the Company is shaping the Irkutsk gas production center on the basis of the Kovyktinskoye field.

Gazprom continues to prepare the field to move from development to full-scale production. In 2018, the Company constructed four exploratory wells and performed 3D seismic surveys covering 2,460 square kilometers. Geological exploration is in full swing. In 2019, Gazprom intends to prepare sites for production wells and to commence drilling. It is planned to start feeding gas from Kovyktinskoye into the Power of Siberia gas pipeline in late 2022.
