Gulf Of Ob License Areas

Licenses for the East-Tambeyskiy and North-Obskiy areas in the Gulf of Ob were acquired in September 2011 and are valid through 2041.

The East-Tambeyskiy and North-Obskiy licence areas, located offshore in the Gulf of Ob, have a geographical acreage area of approximately 9,800 square km. Their resources are estimated at 0.9 tcm of natural gas of C3 category under the Russian reserve classification system.

In 2015, we continued full-scale exploration works at our license areas located offshore in the Gulf of Ob to properly assess the resource potential of this strategically important region. We started three-dimensional (3D) seismic studies at the North-Obskiy offshore license area.
