Messoyakha Deposit Plans

Gazprom Neft estimates that it may cost $20 billion to tap the Messoyakha deposit with TNK-BP, according to an FSU Energy interview with Marat Atnashev, head of major projects at Gazprom Neft, posted on the company's web site.

The project plans 2 million tons to 5 million tons a year output in 2015 to 2017. Maximum production will reach 20 million tons of oil a year and 10 billion cubic meters of gas.

Overall investment may reach $20 billion. The venture plans investments of $130 million this year, increasing to as much as $300 million next year and $1 billion in 2013.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
