Scientist compares Russia’s Bazhenovskaya formation exploration to space exploration

May 15, 2014

The exploration of the Bazhenovskaya formation is akin to space exploration, said a member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Aleksey Kontorovich. He believes this has been one of the main developments in West Siberia. Kontorovich said that thus far explorers have lacked technologies to calculate resources and develop the deposits. The Bazhenovskaya formation is estimated to contain tens of billions of tons of oil, but it is impossible to say how much of that is recoverable without appropriate technologies, said Kontorovich.
