The Novy Port project

The Novy Port project The development of the Novoportovskoye field on the Yamal Peninsula is one of Gazprom Neft’s strategic projects — this asset, specifically, being scheduled to become the centre of a major production cluster being developed by the company on the Yamal peninsula. History Novoportovskoye was the first hydrocarbon field discovered on the Yamal Peninsula. Major oil and gas reserves were proved to be present here as early as 1964, but the absence of transport infrastructure...

Geological prospecting – Exploration-and-production

... 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. Reserves replacement According to an audit undertaken by independent international consulting company DeGolyer and MacNaughton, Gazprom Neft’s proved (1P) hydrocarbon reserves as at end 2018 are estimated at 1.56 billion ...

Resource Base

... focus in developing its resource base lies in the organic growth of existing assets, involvement in developing oil assets owned by Gazprom PJSC, investigating and bringing non-traditional reserves into commercial development, and proactive geological exploration, both in new prospecting zones and offshore. The overriding strategic objective is to develop a resource base sufficient to achieve production of 100 million tonnes of oil equivalent (mtoe) by 2020, and subsequent increases to that figure....

Annual oil production up 22% at Messoyakhaneftegaz

Messoyakhaneftegaz, the Gazpromneft—Rosneft joint venture, delivered total production of more than 5.6 million tonnes of oil equivalent (mtoe) as at year-end 2019 — a 22-percent increase on 2018. Production at the Vostochno-Messoyakhskoye field (in the Gydan Peninsula, Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug) reached more than 16,000 tonnes of oil per day. These higher production volumes have been made possible by deploying cutting-edge production methodologies in developing hard-to-recover viscous oil...

Gazprom Neft has become the first company in Russia to undertake major seismic works using domestically produced “CRAB” seabed stations

... investigations using 3D 4C technology in 2019. CRAB seabed stations are a unique Russian-produced solution, created following a joint project between Gazprom Neft, the Ministry of Trade and Industry of the Russian Federation, JSC Marine Arctic Geological Exploration, and the International Tomography Centre (ITC SB RAS). Oil and gas companies have, hitherto, had to use existing foreign-produced equipment for seismic operations of this kind. An exclusively Russian development, CRAB seabed stations are not ...

Gazprom Neft widens its presence in the Orenburg Oblast

Gazprom Neft has won the license to the Pervormaisky block, and is also expanding the boundaries of fields it is already developing in the Orenburg Oblast. Gazprom Neft continues its development of a promising exploration cluster in the south—west of the Orenburg Oblast, with the company due to secure the license to the Pervomaisky block before the end of the year. Covering an area of approximately 394 square kilometres, the block is marked by a low level ...

Exploitation of flank license blocks is leading to further expansion of Gazprom Neft’s resource base

... Geological prospecting licenses to both blocks have been issued for a period of five years. Prospecting and appraisal programmes at both assets will be prepared by the end of 2019, with seismic works starting in 2020. Yuri Masalkin, Director for Geological Exploration and Resource Base Development, Gazprom Neft, commented: “Developing the flank programme will allow Gazprom Neft to gain access to interesting blocks for exploration, quickly, and at minimal cost. This new mechanism also helps give a second ...

Gazprom Neft confirms the commercial outlook for its Chona project

Gazprom Neft subsidiary Gazpromneft-GEO has drilled a second horizontal well at the Ignyalinskoye field in the Irkutsk Oblast. Commercial inflow is more than double the flow rate at the first well, constructed last year. The project to develop the Chonsky fields will move into pilot development in 2020. A second horizontal well has been drilled at the Ignyalinsky license block during work on preparing reserves at the Chonsky group of fields for development. Ten-stage hydraulic fracking has resulted...
