The 6th of June is the significant date in history of the company “Gazprom dobycha Urengoy”. Urengoyskoye oil, gas, condensate field was discovered on this day in 1966 in near-polar tundra. The exploratory well R-2 drilled by the team of the foreman Vladimir Polupanov 53 years ago gave a powerful natural gas gusher with the daily production rate in 6 million 500 thousand cubic meters.
Further drilling of wells with study of geological structure confirmed that unique by size, geological structure and hydrocarbon reserves and one of the largest in the world Urengoyskoye field was discovered.
The new production record in gas extraction was written on the 25th of March in 2019 in the Russian Book of Records – the company “Gazprom dobycha Urengoy” extracted 7 trillion cubic meters of gas from subsoil of Big Urengoy. This is two times more than annual consumption of the whole planet, as the service on public relations and communication with mass media of the company informs.
Even after many years Urengoyskoye field is one of the main sources for filling of the Unified Gas Supply System of the country. The aim of activity of “Gazprom dobycha Urengoy” stays unchangeable – to provide stable and uninterrupted extraction of hydrocarbon raw materials and their preparation for transportation.
