  This book concisely describes the architecture of the oil and gas pipelines in the Black-Caspian Seas Region and analyzes the status quo and perspectives of oil and gas production in this region. The authors present numerous projects, each of which has made a substantial contribution to the development of pipeline transport and transit in this Manufacturer: Springer. Abstract Most of Kazakhstan’s oil and gas reserves have not been developed. Many areas remain under- or unexplored. It is expected that a considerable portion o. About this book This book concisely describes the architecture of the oil and gas pipelines in the Black-Caspian Seas Region and analyzes the status quo and perspectives of oil and gas production in this region.

The Caucasus petroleum province can be considered as encompassing the region from Crimea and the Sea of Azov in the west to the South Caspian in the east. The region has extremely large proven hydrocarbon reserves (approximately 30 billion bbl oil equivalent), and speculation in the industry is that there is perhaps as much again yet to find.   The Caspian Sea hydrocarbon potential Estimates of the Caspian Sea region's proven oil reserves vary widely by source. The United States Department of Energy estimates that the region holds between 17 and 44 billion barrels (Energy Information Administration, a).   Proven gas reserves in the Caspian region are estimated at – trillion ft 3, comparable to North American reserves ( trillion ft 3) but somewhat larger than Western Europe's (– trillion ft 3). The prospect of potentially huge hydrocarbon reserves is part of the allure of the region. However, hydrocarbon exploration in the Central Caspian Sea has been sparse, with drilling activity largely focused near shore and little to no activity within the central part of the basin. Primary hydrocarbon discoveries have been made in the deeper Triassic to Cretaceous strata, with potential still remaining in the shallower Tertiary sequences.

Hydrocarbons and a New Strategic Region: The Caspian Sea and Central Asia gas are not the only hydrocarbon deposits in the region. attracted by the region's economic potential could also. To better understand the potential impact of these forces, the authors of The Caspian Sea Region Towards imagine three different futures and predict the Caspian Sea region’s place within each. In the first scenario, the world is dominated by economic competition, and those countries around the Caspian Sea are leading gas and oil exporters. Book Description. The Caspian redefines a Caspian debate long characterized by one-sided and politically motivated analyses and, at times, fantastic reporting. Bringing together a range of influential voices from academia, the media, the oil industry, civil service, the military and diplomatic corps, this book rewrites the region's recent history.
