Estimation of free gas potential resources in the Russian sedimentary basins and their verifiability by exploration and prospecting activities

Critical overview of the official estimates of free gas initial potential resources in the Russian sedimentary basins is presented. The results of free gas resources assessment over all onshore and shelf regions are discussed; the mentioned estimates were obtained using the original methods and approaches to resources investigations. The obtained amounts of initial potential gas resources should be considered as a pessimistic estimate of North Eurasia gas potential; practical validation of this estimate in terms of future reserves is estimated as high.

Key words: potential resources; hydrocarbons; free (non-associated) gas; exploration and prospecting; methods; assessment.
