On 26th of February the UKRSGRI held a meeting of the regional Commission for the revision of the Fund of oil and gas facilities of the Eastern region of Ukraine – the Dnipro-Donets basin.

The meeting was attended by the leading experts of UKRSGRI and state oil and gas exploration companies – PJSC “Naftogaz Ukrainy”, DK “Ukrgazvydobuvannya”, enterprise “Ukrgeofizika”, SC enterprise “Ukrgeofizika”, NAK “Nadra Ukraine”, DP “Ukrautogaz” SE “Chernigivnaftogazgeologiya” and a number of major commercial structures, which have many license areas in the Eastern region – OOO “Esko-North”, LLC “KUB-GAZ” OOO “Dionis line”.

The Director of UKRSGRI S. V. Goshovsky congratulated those present and wished everyone fruitful work and new achievements in the field of oil and gas exploration in Ukraine.

The Commission, chaired by the chief geologist of the KC UKRGGRI Prigarina T. M., reviewed the current state of the Fund of oil and gas facilities of the Eastern region of Ukraine and made changes to the previous Fund, which occurred during the past year in connection with the change in the license status of the object or its transfer to another category (in preparation for drilling, commissioning, commissioning in the DPR, etc.). The significant changes in the undistributed Fund of the State geological mineral resources structures were noted, including due to the growth of licensing activity of commercial organizations. In General, their number was decreased.

At the same time, the Unallocated Fund was not replenished with new discovered objects due to insufficient financing of specialized enterprises of the State geological mineral resources of Ukraine by the state. We should note that it is the Unallocated Fund of the identified structures that is a significant state reserve for auctions to study the oil and gas subsoil and build-up hydrocarbon reserves in the region and in Ukraine.

The discovery of five oil and gas fields in the Eastern region during 2018 is planned. The materials will be updated on the Central Commission.

The specialists of UKRSGRI will analyze the changes and prepare materials for approval by the Central Commission for the revision of the Fund of oil and gas facilities and its final formation as of 01.01.2009 in the bear future.
