Preparation of areas for the future objects of infrastructure was completed: sand filling of swampy territory made 2 million and 300 thousand cubic meters of sand. 130 units of heavy machinery and about 150 accommodation wagons for builders are concentrated in the oilfield today. This information was given to a correspondent of IA «Sever-Press» in the branch «Messoyakha» of the company «Gazprom Neft – Razvitiye».
Reservoirs of different size for treatment and storage of oil and water will be assembled on building sites of the central point of collection and the point of commercial registration of oil. Fire-fighting reservoirs and foundation for gas-turbine aggregates will be prepared for the electric power station.
Building of the pressure oil pipeline with the length 105 kilometers from the East-Messoyakhskoye field to the acceptance transfer unit will start in the 4th quarter of the year.
