Indications of regionally spread gas-bearing horizon of new type at the north of Western Siberia

Authors: V.S. Yakushev, K.S. Basniev, F.A. Adzynova, I.V. Gryaznova, V.V. Voronova (Gubkin Russian State University on Oil and Gas, RF, Moscow)

Key words: gas-bearing horizon, gas blowouts, gas hydrates

Cenomanian gas reservoirs at giant Western Siberia gas fields are at the late stage of development. New gas reserves with gas composition identical to Cenomanian could be found in upper part of Tibeisalin suit located at depth 300-600 m. This suite has good reservoir properties and is regionally spread. It is capped by other regional horizon having trap properties. Drill teams often observe gas liberations from this depth interval when drilling through. Tibeisalin horizon is located in the interval of hydrate stability zone and two-phase gas state is expected. So, new exploration and production technologies will be necessary.
