Russia - natural gas reserves 1995-2019

In 2019, Russia had proved reserves of 38 trillion cubic meters of natural gas, up from 34 trillion cubic meters recorded ten years earlier. Russia was the country with the largest proved natural gas reserves in that year, accounting for slightly over 19 percent of this fossil fuel’s total reserves worldwide.

Where are Russian gas reserves located?

According to CDU TEK, Urengoy and Yamburg gas fields are the largest gas fields in Russia, with 16 and 8.2 trillion cubic meters of reserves, respectively. Both are operated by subsidiaries of Russia’s leading gas producer Gazprom. They are positioned in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug, the country’s federal subject with the largest natural gas production volume, in the West Siberian petroleum basin. In general, Gazprom owned most of its natural gas reserves in the Ural Federal District.
