The company “Gazpromneft-Yamal” drilled 34 wells last year in Novoportovskoye field. This number exceeds the business-plan on 4 wells, and the index of 2014 – on 26 wells. Employees of the enterprise reached the record owing to use of the newest technologies.
Thus, in 2015 they drilled a well with maximum length of a borehole – 4363 meters and with maximum index of drilling rate – 6 days per 1000 meters. A next high-rate well with the length of a horizontal part of a borehole in 1500 meters was input to operation in the beginning of January of 2016 in Novoportovskoye field. Its initial rate exceeded 1000 tons per day, what confirms high potential of Novoportovskoye field.
Novoportovskoye field is one of the largest oil and gas fields being developed in Yamal. Extractable reserves of the field of categories C1 and C2 make more than 250 million tons of oil and condensate and also more than 320 milliard cubic meters of gas with consideration of Paleozoic deposits. In 2014 the company “Gazprom Neft” fulfilled the program on drilling within experimental and industrial production of the field and started exploitation drilling.
Offloading of raw materials by sea through Mys Kamenniy was chosen as an optimal decision for transportation. For the first time “Gazprom Neft” confirmed the opportunity of transportation of oil during winter by sea in 2011 after testing support by the icebreaker from the port of Sabetta to Mys Kamenniy. As the press-service of the company informs, the new brand of oil from Yamal by its characteristics is referred to light ones, and by its low content of sulfur (about 0.1 percent) surpasses not only the Russian brand Urals but also the brand Brent.
