Experts announce approximate oil and gas reserves in Dagestan
According to the Institute of Geology of Dagestan Federal Research Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the approximate reserves of oil on Dagestan shelf area makes 820 million tons, gas - 740 billion. But the development of this zone is very slow, Russia lags behind neighboring countries - Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, says Vasily Cherkashin, the Institute director says.
Recall at the end of the first half of 2023 the oil production in Dagestan decreased by 18%, gas - by 9%. The reason for this is the heavy wear of the existing wells and poor exploration of new fields.
