Gazprom Neft and China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) have entered right into a technical partnership on the Eastern Economic Forum to develop superior oil restoration applied sciences.
One of the partnership’s key aims is to develop and undertake superior methods to extend oil restoration, together with polymer and surfactant flooding. As an preliminary step, the businesses will launch a feasibility examine for surfactant flooding on the Sutorminskoye subject (Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Area). Based on the outcomes of this examine, the events will resolve on pilot checks earlier than shifting to potential field-wide software, after which the expertise can be deployed at different property of the Company.
Gazprom Neft has a profitable monitor file of utilizing polymer and surfactant flooding at its property.

By counting on the newest developments in enhanced oil restoration, we are able to ship larger efficiency in our subsoil operations and lengthen the lives of many fields in Western Siberia. The settlement with CNPC, a worldwide chief in surfactant flooding, is one more step in the direction of enhancing our technical competencies. We see our partnership as a powerful alternative to extend the effectivity of manufacturing at Gazprom Neft’s mature property.” (Flying over the Sutorminskoye subject close to Noyabrsk, Western Siberia – Image: ReneB/EGN)
