Following a set of tests at Gazprom’s Leningradskoye field, the commercial gas inflow reached the heights of 1 million cubic meters per day (mcm/d), according to a press release.

These figures represent a record-high for the fields located on the Arctic shelf of Russia, proving the productivity of the Leningradskoye field is much higher than anticipated.

During the exploration activities at Yamal, a new gas deposit was discovered at the Leningradskoye field of the Yamal gas production center which has helped to boost production. 

The Leningradskoye gas and condensate field is located in the Kara Sea within the Leningradsky licensed block. The field’s current recoverable gas reserves are estimated to total 1.9 trillion cubic meters (tcm) and are classified as unique.
