Abstract

The Yamal mega project – new evolving area, that combines production and infrastructure facilities and will have to replace the Nadym-Pur-Taz area – major gas production area in Russia since 1970s, that’s became legend by suppling almost all soviet and than Russian export contracts and securing domestic consumption at the same time. But currently Nadym-Pur-Taz is in its decreasing production phase and thus the need to provide substitution for this area is shaping the impotrtance of Yamal mega project for the Russian and international gas market development and security. The Yamal Peninsula and adjacent offshore areas have an enormous potential: the explored gas reserves with estimated and prospective resources total are 26.5 trillion cubic meters, 1,6 billion tonnes of gas condernsate and 300 million tons of oil and represented by 32 fields in total. [State commission on natural reserves. 2012]. Such significant resource base wil make it possible to produce here up to 360 billion cubic meters of gas per year by 2030.
