BELARUS

(in Former Soviet Union)

CAPITAL: MINSK

POPULATION: 11 mm

AREA (on): 207,600 km2

OIL PEAK: 1974

SUPPLY

Oil production in Belarus comes from the northern Pripyat graben, a very mature region. Production has declined from a peak in 1975 and is continuing to decline. There are few prospects left to drill.

All gas is associated and marketed output is steady, transported within existing infrastructure.

Belarus has no offshore waters.

 

DEMAND

Belarus imports most of its oil. Consumption has recovered a little after declines post the break-up of the Soviet Union but is unlikely to grow much in the future in a higher price environment.

Gas consumption is increasing with gas being used wherever possible to replace oil as the economy of the country expands. Imports from Russia will thus increase after 2009.
