Gazprom Neft has maintained momentum in its improvement of the Arctic, with manufacturing at fields past the Arctic Circle comprising 31% of the corporate’s whole hydrocarbon manufacturing.
The firm’s most vital Arctic asset is the Novoportovskoye subject, on the Yamal Peninsula, the place 14.87 million tonnes of oil equal (mtoe) have been produced in 2020 — a 5% enhance on 2019. As effectively as direct manufacturing progress, this enhance can be all the way down to higher use of related petroleum fuel (APG) — i.e., in utilizing applied sciences to permit the fuel produced to be instantly reinjected into subsoil strata to take care of reservoir stress. Pre-commissioning works on increasing the built-in fuel therapy plant (GTP) are anticipated to begin in 2021. Target capability at this facility is 15.eight billion cubic metres (bcm) per yr.
020 manufacturing volumes have been up 10% on the Vostochno-Messoyakhskoye subject (beneath improvement by Gazprom Neft and Rosneft on the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug’s Gydan Peninsula), reaching 6.2 mtoe. This enhance is the results of hard-to-recover reserves being introduced into improvement by new wells being drilled, along with the digitalisation of key operational processes. Project operator Messoyakhaneftegaz is predicted to proceed prospecting for brand spanking new promising reserves within the north of the Messoyakha group of fields all through 2021.
2020 noticed a novel undertaking applied on Messoyakha, involving APG produced on the Vostochno-Messoyakhskoye subject being injected into an underground fuel reservoirs on the Zapadno-Messoyakhskoye subject. More than 700 million cubic metres of fuel has already been injected into Zapadno-Messoyakhskoye strata thus far.
The Prirazlomnoye subject within the Barents Sea noticed three.27 million tonnes of oil produced in 2020, a three% enhance on 2019. The “Arctichesky” heliport on the Varandey shift camp was commissioned in 2020, a part of transport—logistics infrastructure on the Prirazlomnoye undertaking. This facility, which connects the Prirazlomnoye platform with the mainland, is among the finest technologically-equipped heliports within the Arctic Circle. Going ahead, the Arctichesky heliport is predicted to develop into a handy logistics base from which to develop different offshore tasks within the Barents Sea.
Concurrently with growing its current belongings, Gazprom Neft is getting ready to develop its Arctic cluster by fields at present operated by Gazpromneft-Zapolyarye, beneath long-term risk-operatorship agreements with Gazprom PJSC and its subsidiaries. On which foundation, the corporate plans to develop Neocomian-Jurassic deposits on the Bovanenkovskoye oil-and-gas-condensate subject and the Kharasaveyskoye fuel condensate subject within the Yamal Peninsula, in addition to Achimovsky and oil-rim deposits on the Urengoyskoye oil-and-gas-condensate subject. The firm’s Arctic undertaking portfolio additionally contains Achimovsky oil deposits within the Yamburgskoye subject, and oil-rim deposits on the Petsovskoye, En-Yakhinskoye and Zapadno-Tarkosalinskoye fields, additionally being developed beneath long-term risk-operatorship agreements.
Full-scale improvement of the Tazovsky subject is predicted to begin in 2021 as a part of the event of the Nadym-Pur-Tazovsky area within the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous area.
