Messoyakha fields are the Russia’s northernmost active oilfields
The Messoyakha fields include the Vostochno (Eastern) and Zapadno (Western) Messoyakhsky acreages. The fields, originally discovered in the 1980s, are the northernmost (of the known to date) onshore oil fields in Russia. Commercial production at the fields began in 2016. Gazprom Neft has a 50-percent holding in this project.
