Geological prospecting and exploration

Geological prospecting Reserves-replacement levels at Gazprom Neft remain consistently in excess of 100%, every year. Resource-base development is largely facilitated through constant improvements to geological prospecting technologies, and through using the latest non-seismic exploration techniques. Geological prospecting Reserves replacement According to an audit undertaken by independent international consulting company DeGolyer and MacNaughton, Gazprom Neft’s proved (1P) hydrocarbon reserves...

Record-breaking well goes into operation at Gazprom Neft’s Prirazlomnoye field

... is classified as super-complex. The length of the well stands at more than 6.6 kilometres — a new record for the company’s offshore fields. The construction process was supervised remotely, online, by specialists at the company’s GeoNavigator drilling support centre, located in St Petersburg, with predictive analytics being used to ensure well-targeting accuracy along the optimum trajectory. Gazprom Neft is gradually deploying neural-network- and machine-learning-based technologies to further ...

Gazprom Neft and Repsol's cutting-edge technology to help develop one of Khanty Mansi Autonomous Okrug-Yugra's most challenging fields

... the Ervier field in the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug-Yugra. The initial flow rate exceeded 120 tonnes of oil per day — six times higher than the productivity of previously built wells in that area. The new well has become one of the most complex drilling targets ever dealt with in Russia. Combining a number of unique technical characteristics the borehole’s directional difficulty index (DDI) stands at 6.69, compared to an industry average of 6*, running at a depth of around 800 metres the borehole’s ...

Reliability of Russian-made rotary steerable drilling system confirmed by Gazprom Neft

Gazprom Neft has successfully tested a Russian-made rotary steerable system (RSS) at its Yuzhno-Priobskoye field. This equipment is designed for drilling complex-structured wells, with extensive horizontal and directional sections. Rolling-out this technology will significantly reduce equipment costs and improve cost effectiveness in well construction. Rotary drilling differs from traditional ...

Gazprom Neft builds first production well at the Tazovskoye field, Yamalo-Nenetsk Autonomous Okrug

... for the Tazovskoye field . The total length of the new high-tech well runs to 3.9 kilometres, 1.9 kilometres of this comprising the horizontal section. Initial production at the well is in excess of 100 tonnes per day. Data obtained as a result of drilling has allowed the geological model for the Tazovsky field to be clarified, and the development strategy for this asset adjusted — specifically in reducing the timeframe for developing the field, and in increasing potential hydrocarbon production....
