Gazprom Neft acquires offshore licence in the Sea of Okhotsk

Gazpromneft Sakhalin is a subsidiary of Gazprom Neft. Established in 2002, the company is primarily engaged in exploration and development of oil and gas fields. Today the company holds licences for the development of the Dolginskoye oil field and the North-West block of the Pechora Sea, the Kheisovsky block in the Barents Sea, and the Severo-Vrangelevsky block, covering the East-Siberian and Chukhchi Seas. A fourth exploration well was drilled at the Dolginskoye field in 2014 and geophysical and hydrodynamic investigations undertaken.

Gazprom Neft is currently engaged in production on the Russian section of the Arctic, on the continental shelf of the Pechora Sea. The Prirazlomnoye project is the first in the world involving oil production from a stationary platform on the Arctic Shelf, with commercial production commencing in December 2013 and initial consignments of a new Russian “Arctic Oil (ARCO)” despatched from the platform in April 2014. The licence to develop this field is held by Gazpromneft-Shelf LLC, a subsidiary of Gazprom Neft.

Initially discovered in 1989, the Prirazlomnoye oilfield is located in the Pechora Sea, 60 kilometres from the shore on the 69th parallel. Recoverable reserves are in the order of 70 million tonnes. The “Prirazlomnaya” ice-resistant offshore rig was designed specifically for development of this field, and is designed for use in the most extreme environmental and climatic conditions, as well as meeting the most stringent safety requirements and withstanding maximum ice loads. A “zero-emissions” system is in operation at the Prirazlomnaya rig, with drilling fluid, bit cuttings (“drilling sludge”) and other production waste all pumped into a special re-injection well.
