In 2005 the Nakhodkinskoye field was put into operation, and in 2016 the Pyakyakhinskoye oil and gas condensate field was put into operation. At the end of 2019, LUKOIL started pilot production at Yuzhno-Messoyakhskoye gas condensate field. The initial recoverable reserves of the Bolshekhetskaya depression, all fields combined, amount to approximately 1 billion tonnes of reference fuel.
