Transcript The extent to which our gas resources have been utilised is quite negligible. Before the revolution the gases emanating from our oil deposits were almost unutilised, and millions of tons were allowed to escape freely. Now, after the introduction of the so-called closed exploitation in our oilfields, we catch the gas and utilise it in two directions: first, as fuel, and second, for the extraction of gasoline at our gasoline works, of which we now have six: three at Baku and three at Grozny. However, the quantities are rather small in comparison with what we might obtain. Thus, in 1930 we obtained 572,000 tons of gas from our oilfields, or 3 per cent of the oil mined. The 1931 plan envisages the mining of 944,000 tons of gas. Comparing these figures with the corresponding figures for the U.S.A. we see how puny ours are. In 1925 the U.S.A. obtained 33.7 million tons of gas, whereas in the current yeaf we produced only 127,000 tons. At present America produces up to 50 billion cubic metres of gas, equivalent to approximately 50 million tons of oil, which matches our record oil output set for 1933. In 1926 the gasoline works in the United States of America manufactured about 5 billion litres of gasoline, or about 31.3 million barrels. Of course, our figures appear almost infinitesimal when compared with those of America, but when placed alongside our pre-revolutionary statistics, we see a considerable gain in the utilisation of gas. The 1931 plan provides for an output of gas of nearly one million tons, which is equal to the oil output of the entire Maikop region and is more than twice that of Emba. Moreover, this gas is obtainable without any special outlay of money, being merely incident to the production of oil. If we are to develop our gas industry on a large scale, it is an essential prerequisite that all areas rich in gases be thoroughly explored. 46
