pdf  Historical-analytical review of legislative guaranteeing the efficient use and preservation of helium resources in the USA
The wide-scale development of gas resources in the southern part of the Siberian platform for domestic needs and export to the Asian-Pacific countries is planned since 2015-2017. It demands forcing the solution of problem of preserving helium containing in these gases as a component-admixture. Helium quality and reserves are unique. The basis for this problem is mainly legislative measures. The efficient helium development and preservation of its reserves also for the future will not be realized without justifying and taking such measures. The review of legislative guaranteeing the analogous problem taken in the USA even in the 20s of last century is given. It has enabled the USA not only to occupy a leading position in the world on helium production and use but also on storage of a helium reserve in helium-gas-storages.
Key words: gas, helium, reserves, storage, reserve, legislation.

pdf  Gas hydrates - unconventional gas sources, their formation, properties, distribution and geological resources
An overview of information on gas hydrates in land and offshore deposits as a potential unconventional source of hydrocarbons is provided. The attention to such type of unconventional hydrocarbon resources is associated with the fact that its volume is significantly greater than the volume of other species. The basic properties of gas hydrates as well as geophysical and geochemical conditions that determine the possibility of their formation and preservation in sedimentary strata are analyzed. The assessment of gas hydrates resource in Russia and in the world is presented.

Keywords: gas hydrates, unconventional hydrocarbon source, free gas, gas fields, geological resources, mining technology.

pdf  World helium resources and the perspectives of helium industry development
The data on helium production in the world, its scales and the major countries–helium producers are presented. Particular emphasis is placed upon the composition of helium-contented natural gases. World helium reserves related to helium resource quality are estimated as of 2009. It is shown that helium main resources (reserves) are located in natural gases of Russian Siberian platform and in gases of the Midcontinent region and Rocky Mountains in the USA. Helium resources are also present in small quantities in other countries. Particular attention is given in Russia to the necessity of taking steps to protect high-qualitative gas-helium resources from losses during fuel processing or exporting Eastern Siberia natural gases in which helium is present as a < 1% component.

Key words: helium, gases with high content of helium, helium sources, consumption volumes, helium resources, helium-gas-storage.

The results of analysis of vanadium resources in the largest accumulations of metalliferous oils and natural bitumen abroad and in oil and gas fields in the major provinces of Russia are presented, as well as the losses of vanadium reserves during development of metalliferous oils. Existing foreign and domestic technology of vanadium and other valuable metals extraction from oils, natural bitumen and refined products are analyzed; the most effective ones are highlighted. A set of basic actions for organization of highly profitable industrial production of vanadium and other rare and valuable metals extraction from oils in Russia is presented.

pdf  Problems and practice of forming the state reserves of oil and gas in the world and Russia
A brief analysis of world practice of forming the system of oil and gas reserving is given; its purposes are shown. The necessity of creating the Federal reserve of strategic kinds of useful minerals and mainly of oil in Russia is justified; such possibility with consideration for the current state of the oil and gas resource base is estimated. The “List of subsoil blocks of Federal significance” published on March 2009 by the Minpriroda RF is analyzed. It is shown that though this List isn’t full value and isn’t in agreement with its target purpose according to the law “About subsurface”, for the first time some steps on strengthening the State positions in the field of protecting the national interests of Russia in the sphere of subsurface use are taken on a legislative basis.
State reserves of oil and gas, strategic reserves of useful minerals, list of oil and gas fields, resources, reserves, oil, gas.

pdf  Unconventional hydrocarbon resources are the reserve for renewal of the Russia oil and gas resource base
A brief analysis of tendencies in current developing the oil and gas resource base in the World and Russia is given. The major kinds of hydrocarbon unconventional sources are considered, their gradation on the degree of reality of their development and demand is carried out, their significance as a hydrocarbon reserve in the World is justified, their importance in the balance of oil and gas resources and reserves for the separate regions of Russia is determined. The complex of necessary measures for preparing to development of unconventional hydrocarbon sources is proposed. Its realization will help to partially compensate for a forming deficiency in Russia oil and gas reserves.
Key words: unconventional resources, gas hydrates, heavy oils, water-soluble gases, gases of coal basins, measures on preparing to development, after-crisis period of economic development.

A brief description of helium (characteristic of its general properties, the most important of them in a geological sense, its occurrence in nature) is given. Much attention is given to helium recovery from natural gases. The description of ways of preserving the qualitative helium resources is shown on the example of foreign countries. The fields of application of helium based on its unique properties are considered in some detail. The history of developing the industrial production of helium is traced and the proposed fields of helium use in the future are shown. The dynamics of helium world use is considered, the forecast of demand for helium is given to 2020. An unbalance between using and developing the Russia highly qualitative gas-helium resources and its demands and possibilities is shown.

pdf Dynamics of the share of the relative content of hard-to-recover oil reserves in balance reserves
More than half of proven oil fields are presented by hard-to-recover oil reserves either by the quality (heavy or high viscosity oils) or location (permeability less than 0,05 um2). Hard-to-recover oil fields are characterized by low and unstable well flow rates, operation of which is hardly cost-effective in the current conditions of the Russian subsoil use. The total percentage of hard-to-recover oils in the proven reserves of Russia has exceeded 60% (in Khanty-Mansiysk District - 67%). The structure of residual oil reserves is significantly deteriorating mostly due to the fiscal extraction tax, which caused selective development of the best reserves providing 2/3 of the oil production in Russia. The tendency of increasing the percentage of hard-to-recover oils will still exist in the future. The remaining oil reserves for cost-effective development in the modern mining conditions can provide oil production, at best, until 2015. The main way of the solution of this problem is the implementation of exploration work for new fields' identification; development of previously identified undeveloped fields, development of new high technologies of oil production, integrated approach to oil refining and improvement of the regulatory framework for the oil industry.
Key words: hard-to-recover oil reserves, oil reserves structure, oil production structure, heavy oils, low permeability reservoir, development efficiency.

International experience in the area of oil and gas reserves formation, current state of the hydrocarbon resource base in the Russian Federation as well as its legal status are being considered. Various options of hydrocarbon reserves creation in Russia - from warehouse reserves (for crisis situations), to resources for future generations have been analyzed. Their approximate volumes are estimated, quantitative and qualitative characteristics are given, as well as the legislative basis required for State reserves formation of oil and gas in Russia, to provide their intended purpose prescribed in the Law "On Subsoil".
