The annual business plan on oil production is fulfilled ahead of schedule. Thanks to “Vorota Arktiki”

The company “Gazpromneft-Yamal” fulfilled the annual business plan on oil production in Novoportovskoye field ahead of schedule, having extracted 5 million 473 thousand and 107 tonnes. Increase in average growth of oil production rate from new wells, which made not the planned 100 tonnes per day but 223 tonnes, became the basic factor in fulfillment of the business plan. 

According to the information given to the news agency “Sever-Press” in “Gazpromneft-Yamal”, increase in indexes of “Gazprom Neft” became possible thanks to construction of “Vorota Arktiki” in the Gulf of Ob - the only oil terminal located in fresh waters behind the Polar Circle. It was started up on the 25th of May in 2016; the President of Russia Vladimir Putin was present on the ceremony.
“Gazpromneft-Yamal” uses advanced technologies of drilling of horizontal multilateral wells with deadline record for the company. In 2017 the rate of drilling in Novoportovskoye field grew on 21 percent in comparison to the previous period. Experience of specialists proved its effectiveness and was recommended for distribution in the perimeter of the company: six multilateral wells with cased boreholes, including one well with four horizontal boreholes, were built.
To optimize production processes the enterprise introduces “Technical limit” - an integrated approach to drilling for maximum performance without damage to personnel and environment. Within the program specialists together with servicing companies conduct the session “Drilling on paper”, with help of which it is possible to forecast and to prevent possible risks.
The achieved result was made possible owing to coordinated work of the team of the project “Novy Port”, constructive interaction with function blocks, use of modern technologies and innovative solutions. Competent logistic strategy of hydrocarbons shipment through the terminal “Vorota Arktiki” and their transportation through the Northern Sea Route allow the enterprise to send tankers with oil of the brand Novy Port to Europe the whole year round. Its quality was recognized as one of the best in the company and on the world markets, as the director general of “Gazpromneft-Yamal” Aleksey Ovechkin notes. He is sure that the team of the project “Novy Port” will contribute to achievement of key strategic goals of “Gazprom Neft” and to strengthening of its positions on Russian and international markets.
