Gazprom Neft joint venture fund New Industry Ventures is supporting the development of Russia’s first ever high-speed downhole survey system

The “New Industry Ventures” fund (a collective venture fund involving Gazprom Neft, Gazprombank, the Russian Venture Company (RVC) and VEB Ventures) has invested in developing a universal telemetry platform to support the drilling of high-tech wells. Russia’s New Industry Ventures fund has committed support for a project by Axel — a company specialising in developing and producing digital solutions and telemetry equipment for drilling processes. Supported by the fund, Axel will complete its development...

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 drilling in that the entire drill string, rather than just the drill bit, rotates. Rotary steerable systems...

Gazprom Neft succeeds in using digital technologies to enhance recovery of “hard-to-recover” reserves

Gazprom Neft has succeeded in deploying its “Cyber-Fracking 2.0” simulator at company assets. The “Cyber-Fracking 2.0” simulator models the processes involved in creating fissures under hydraulic fracturing (fracking), and determines the best options for undertaking geological operations. When used together with other Gazprom Neft digital tools this technology can deliver a 5% efficiency gain in oil production at low-permeability formations. The economic benefit of deploying this digital tool is...

Gazprom Neft develops supercomputer to create Siberian and Arctic digital field simulations

Gazprom Neft has built a computing cluster in St Petersburg designed to generate digital twins of oil fields. With an intra-node data transmission rate exceeding that of many Russian supercomputers, the new distributed computing system is capable of processing more than 100 gigabits (Gbit) per second, speeding up the digital modelling process five-fold. Digital field models help specialists take informed investment decisions, and plan future asset infrastructure and hydrocarbon production volumes...

New high-strength “fishbone” well built at Gazprom Neft’s Vostochno-Messoyakhskoye field

Messoyakhaneftegaz has successfully completed construction of a new high-tech horizontal well at the Vostochno-Messoyakhskoye field — the Drilling Difficulty Index (DDI) of this well being among the highest in the industry. The well is of “fishbone” construction,* with eight side-tracks. This technology means as many disparate areas as possible of the main productive strata at this Arctic field can be brought into production, increasing the oil recovery factor (ORF). Drilling took less than 25 days...

Gazprom Neft begins implementing molecular geochemical prospecting technologies

Gazprom Neft has become the first company in Russia to test an innovative molecular-level hydrocarbon exploration technology — aerial geochemical prospecting. Implementing this new prospecting technology could lead to savings of more than RUB650 million in exploration costs at a single license block. Aerial geochemical prospecting makes it possible to determine — without major initial financial outlay — potentially promising areas for further appraisal and exploratory drilling on the basis of the...

“The experience we’ve built up in offshore development is unique”

Interview with Andrey Patrushev, Deputy CEO for Offshore Development, Gazprom Neft PJSC Kommersant Production worldwide is increasingly moving offshore. Russia too is successfully increasing offshore reserves and production — the most promising uncharted part of which being the Arctic. The first Russian company to start production there was Gazprom Neft, five years ago, at the Prirazlomnoye field. Andrey Patrushev , Deputy CEO for Offshore Development, Gazprom Neft, talked to Kommersant about...

Gazprom Neft fine-tunes well construction technologies

Gazpromneft-Orenburg (a subsidiary of Gazprom Neft) has commissioned the first high-tech well built using multi-storey drilling technology. This new approach makes it possible to increase initial production by more than 40 percent, as well as increasing surface efficiency (the “sweep ratio”) and development drilling efficiency. Constructed at the Vostochny licence block at the Orenburg oil and gas-condensate field (VU ONGKM), the "multi-storey" well is a kind of multilateral well with...

Gazprom Neft – investing in the Arctic, and in effective technologies for developing tight oil

Interview with first deputy CEO Vadim Yakovlev Gazprom neft media breakfast (London) Interview with first deputy CEO Vadim Yakovlev KEY AREAS FOR BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT The era of “easy oil” is now long gone. Fields discovered decades ago now see decreasing production: which is why it is important to look to the future and establish a solid basis for going forward. For Gazprom Neft, that means the Arctic, and hard-to-recover reserves. By developing new assets, Gazprom Neft plans to remain one of...

Gazprom Neft develops the industry’s first digital model of the Achimovsky strata

The Gazprom Neft Science and Technology Centre , together with specialists from Gazpromneft-Angara, have developed the first ever digital model of the Achimovsky strata, revealing 10 promising zones with resource potential in excess of 34 billion tonnes of hydrocarbons.* This digital model will form the basis behind strategy for developing hard-to-recover reserves in the Achimovsky strata. Acreage in Western Siberia, covering six regions of the Russian Federation, and a total 1.5 million square...
