New Natural Gas Production Well To Be Open Near Břeclav

Moravian town of Břeclav is often called the Czech Qatar. Natural gas production wells that work in its neighbourhood bring millions of crowns every year to the country’s budget. Recently oil and gas producer Česká naftařská společnost, s.r.o. has made an application for starting field development of a new natural gas well near Břeclav. The company would like to start exploitation as soon as this year and continue it until 2025.

Implementation of this project will make possible for the company to produce millons of cubic metres of natural gas per year more than now. The application states that according to data accumulated during exploration works the estimated total quantity of natural gas that could be produced is 200 000 Nm3 per day, with maximum of 67 million Nm3 per year.

Some experts eхpressed anxiety concerning safety of this project and its possible advert effects upon the town and its vicinity, because the production well is to be located less than in 1 km from the nearest dwellings. But the conclusion made by an expert company during preliminary research stated that no serious negative influences upon environment are awaited.

A Česká naftařská representative said: "After the extraction of natural gas (estimated in 2025) the mining centers will be rehabilitated. Wells will be destroyed. The equipment will be cleaned before disposal and deprived of oil."

South Moravia is the only Czech region that posesses some significant deposits of oil and natural gas. Though they cannot play any serious part in covering the country’s need of energy resources because they constitute only about half a percent of "winter" daily consumption in the Czech Republic.

That is why Czech oil and gas companies are eager to invest huge sums of money in exploration of new deposits. Thus, the above mentioned Česká naftařská company owned now by businessman Peter Lamich invested about CZK 100 mln. during 2008.
