On the 31st of May Gubkinskoye gas field is celebrating its 20th anniversary. The flame symbolizing the birth of one more gas production facility was lit on this day in 1999 within the ceremony.
At that time Gubkinskoye gas field was the first and the only field of “Gazprom dobycha Noyabrsk”, activity of which was fully fulfilled within the owner-operator agreement.
Gubkinskoye gas field is in many ways unique. The amalgamation of investment and production potential of two enterprises – “Gazprom dobycha Noyabrsk” and “Purgaz” was tested on it for the first time. The experience was successful; the field was built in the record time – during 10 months. In addition, gas workers of Noyabrsk developed a set of engineering solutions that allowed stable extracting of gas difficult in geological terms. Now almost 300 employees work in the field, as the press center of the company “Gazprom dobycha Noyabrsk” informs.
Here are the main historical milestones of the production object. In 1965 the geological team discovered Gubkinskoye gas condensate field with the balance gas reserves in about 400 milliard cubic meters and the gas-bearing area in 580 square kilometers. In May of 1999 Gubkinskoye gas field was input to operation, and less than 2 months later (on the 24th of July) it gave gas to the country in industrial amounts. In January of 2002 technological tests of the first stage of a booster compressor station were completed – the station was input to operation. In 2013 the milestone of gas production was reached — 200 milliard cubic meters. In 2016 reconstruction of the booster complex in Gubkinskoye gas field was fulfilled – transfer to three-stage compression of gas took place.
