The Vezhavozhskiy block in Komi Republic has the largest oil resource, located 53 kilometres to the south of Ukhta and 28 kilometres to the south-east of Yarega. The block pertains to the Timanskiy oil and gas bearing region and has proved C1 oil reserves of 17.78 million tonnes, as of 2009. Yaregskoye field, which lies within the blocks, holds oil and gas from the middle devonian frasnian deposits. Currently, 35 stratigraphic wells have been drilled within the licensing area. An auction for the Vezhavozhskiy block will start on 14 December 2010 and the block will be offered for 20 years of exploration and production. The deadline to submit applications and deposits is 12 November 2010. An application fee is set at USD4,286.
