Background

Geological exploration performed by Gazprom in the Yuzhno-Kovyktinskaya area led to the Chikanskoye gas and condensate field discovery. C1+C2 reserves of the field amount to 98.2 billion cubic meters of gas and 6.5 million tons of condensate. In 2008 the field was brought into pilot commercial operation.

In March 2011 Gazprom acquired the assets of RUSIA Petroleum via an auction procedure. This entitled the Company to receive the subsurface use license for the Kovyktinskoye gas and condensate field.

In October 2011 the license for hydrocarbon feedstock production and geological exploration in the Kovyktinskoye field was reissued to Gazprom pursuant to a decision by the Federal Subsurface Use Agency.
