Scientists have discovered large unexplored reserves of oil and gas in Ukraine

Ukrainian scientists have discovered the presence of significant unexplored hydrocarbon resources in the oil and gas regions of Ukraine.

By the most conservative forecasts of scientists, their reserves are more than 5 billion tons of standard coal, and reserves of unconventional hydrocarbons – generally huge, reports DT.UA .

“Scientists of our university, together with experts from NASU, have carried out a thorough work on assessing the resource base. By the most cautious conclusions, unexplored traditional hydrocarbon resources in the eastern, western and southern oil and gas regions of Ukraine amount to more than 5 billion tons of conditional fuel, and this is twice the cumulative production. There is still huge reserves of unconventional hydrocarbons – shale gas and oil, methane from coal deposits, gas hydrates of the Black Sea “, – said the vice-rector for scientific and educational work e Ivano-Frankivsk National Technical University of Oil and Gas Sergey Kurovets.

According to him, today the deepest horizons of the Eastern petroleum region have the greatest prospect for development. At the Machukh field, a gas inflow with a daily flow rate of 1.2 million cubic meters was obtained from a depth of 7,000 m.

In addition, scientists have studied the oil and gas promising areas of the western region.

“The Poles are already well reconnoitered their part of the Carpathians. Time to take on geological exploration Ukrainian companies,” – said the scientist.

As noted in the article, the first large deposits explored in Ukraine were indeed depleted – in the 1970s, Ukrainian gas, the annual production of which amounted to almost 70 billion cubic meters, was sent to Europe and Russia. However, according to scientists, Ukraine still remains a country rich in oil and gas.

Recall that in the  first quarter of 2019 gas production in Ukraine increased by 3.4% and amounted to 5 billion 280.3 million cubic meters.
