The Provincial Secretariat for Urban Planning and Environmental Protection said that it has adopted the decision to approve the environmental impact assessment study of the project of determining the as-is state and continuation of the exploitation of gas and condensate at the exploitation field near Srbobran.

In the territory of the municipality of Srbobran, according to the study from January this year, oil company NIS has two active fields – Turija Sever and Srbobran. At the exploitation field Srbobran two wells are operational and the entire exploitation field consists of 6 wells.

The exploitation of gas and condensate from the oil and gas field Srbobran began in 1974 and the gas is used for the production of electricity, while the condensate is transported by cisterns to the collection and dispatching station Turija Sever, and then by auto-cisterns from there to the Pancevo refinery.

The average production of gas from wells at exploitation field Srbobran, according to the data from December 2020, amount to 32,000 cubic meters per day.

NIS has emphasized on several occasions that, from the exploration of hydrocarbons, which are in fact crude oil and gas, it expects a new production of these energy sources.
