ABSTRACT
The article provides information about the oil and gas field activities of several natural gas companies including TNK-BP, Gazprom and Slavneft in Eastern Siberia, Russia. According to the region's Department of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Eastern Siberia is estimated to have approximately 8 billion tons of recoverable oil reserves and about 24 trillion cubic meters of gas reserves. Despite this advantage, the trunk oil pipelines and gas infrastructure of the area is not well-developed which is a barrier for increasing oil and gas production. To solve the problem, two pipeline projects were constructed including the Eastern Siberia-Pacific Ocean (ESPO) Pipeline and the gas pipeline Altai.
