The company “Gazpromneft – Yamal” extracted 9 million 900 thousand tonnes of oil equivalent in Novoportovskoye field. In comparison to the previous year the level of extraction in the arctic extractive field grew on 40%. Prescheduled fulfillment of the annual business-plan was provided with perfection of technologies of the whole production chain: introduction of innovations in the sphere of hydrocarbon extraction, construction of wells, creation of objects of infrastructure and transportation of raw materials.
At the present time 6 productive layers, where the basic amount of oil reserves is concentrated, are developed in Novoportovskoye. This information was given to the news agency “Sever-Press” in the press center of “Gazpromneft-Yamal”. This year average daily production makes 19 thousand and 600 tonnes of oil. There are 227 wells in exploitation, 27 of them are multilateral wells. 20 wells were built with indexes in drilling speed record for the company, construction of multi-branch wells is continued, non-ball-and-socket technology of hydraulic fracturing and proactive geosteering are being introduced.
The oil terminal “Vorota Arktiki” in the Gulf of Ob has strategic significance in development of extractive fields of the Yamal peninsula. More than 20 oil and gas fields were discovered in the polar region in addition to Novoportovskoye. Delivery of hydrocarbons to consumers from these assets is possible by sea. Now 6 tankers of the series “Shturman” of Arc7 ice class and the multifunctional vessel “Alexander Sannikov” are involved into transportation of raw materials. They were designed and built on the order of “Gazprom Neft”.
For utilization of associated petroleum gas the company is completing creation of large production complex in the Arctic. First of all, gas will be delivered to a gas treatment unit, which is purposed for processing with next pumping into productive layers. Due to the technology, about 17 million cubic meters of gas per day are returned to the layer in Novoportovskoye field. Also the treated associated petroleum gas from the unit is fuel for the gas-turbine electric power station, which reached the project capacity in 96 megawatt. The object provides energy for social, household and production objects in the extractive field.
In addition, the new analytical laboratory was input to operation in Novoportovskoye field. Here it is possible to conduct more than 20 kinds of high-technological tests of commercial oil, associated petroleum gas and gas condensate and also technical liquids being use in production process. Laboratory researches confirm high quality of oil of Novy Port brand.
“Successful fulfillment of complex projects behind the Polar Circle speaks about maturity of the team, effective cross-functional interaction and readiness of employees to solve difficult tasks. This year the project “Novy Port” reached the final in the authoritative international prize Platts Global Energy Awards in the nomination “Evolution of oil production”, what, of course, speaks about global recognition of technologies being used in the company. Till the end of 2018 oil extraction in Novoportovskoye field will exceed indexes of the business-plan”, as the director general of “Gazpromneft-Yamal” Aleksey Ovechkin noted.
