The second tanker with oil extracted from Novoportovskoye field on the Yamal peninsula was sent to consumers in September.
The next consignment of raw materials in the amount 27200 tons was delivered to the North Western Europe. A new kind of oil, which received the title Novy Port, by its qualitative characteristics, which include low content of sulfur (about 0.1 percent), surpass the etalon Brent oil.
The third tanker is being prepared now, as it is informed to IA «Sever-Press» in the press-service of the company «Gazprom Neft». Start of transportation of oil from Novoportovskoye field by sea took place in August. The field and the settlement Mys Kamenniy, where the large terminal for year-round offloading of oil will appear, are connected with the oil pipeline; its length is 103 kilometers. Now its capacity makes 600 thousand tons per year. Later it will be increased.
Production objects were built with consideration of the best world standards with use of decisions, which allow minimizing impact on environment and guaranteeing safe work in severe climate conditions. In particular, technologies of building of objects in analogous temperature modes were used at construction of the oil pipeline. The oil pipeline is laid on special supports above the ground, what allows keeping layers of permafrost untouched. Passages are foreseen in places of reindeer migration. The pipeline is equipped with systems of heating and permanent control over its state and wholeness.
As we should note, extractable reserves of Novoportovskoye field on categories C1 and C2 makes more than 250 million tons of oil and condensate and also more than 320 milliard cubic meters of gas (with consideration of Paleozoic deposits). The field is situated on the Yamal peninsula far from transport pipeline infrastructure. The opportunity to use the sea way was confirmed by «Gazprom Neft» in 2011 after experimental piloting of a nuclear-powered icebreaker from the port of Sabetta to Mys Kamenniy situated 400 kilometers away to the south. Experimental industrial exploitation of Novoportovskoye field was started in the end of 2012. This summer the program of exploitation drilling was started in the field. Till the end of the year it is supposed to drill 9 wells. This year extraction accumulated since the beginning of the year in Novoportovskoye field for the first time exceeded 100 thousand tons of oil.
