Utilisation of associated petroleum gas (APG) at Gazpromneft-Noyabrskneftegaz exceeds 95 percent APG utilisation at Gazprom Neft breaches the 95-percent mark

Utilisation of associated petroleum gas (APG) at ;Gazpromneft-Noyabrskneftegas, a subsidiary of Gazprom Neft, has breached the 95-precent mark — a level achieved through the commissioning of a 200-million cubic-metre capacity gas-boosting compressor station at the Novogodny field (Purovsky district, Yamalo-Nenetsk Autonomous Okrug). The compressor unit provides initial treatment and compression of APG at the first level of separation, and subsequent transportation to the main Gazprom Neft trunk pipeline network.

To ensure the greatest possible level of APG utilisation at the Novogodny field more than 10 kilometres of high-pressure pipeline have been laid, and two reciprocating (piston) compressor units within the gas compressor unit refurbished. The Novogodny field is the second successive Gazprom Neft asset to be brought into production on the basis of commercial flaring.

Anton Gladchenko, Head of the Gazprom Neft Energy and Gas Directorate, commented: “Gazprom Neft is implementing a major programme directed at increasing the profitable use of APG. We continue to investigate and implement viable technologies to further increase APG utilisation levels at all current and potential assets, trying to minimize man-made impacts and improving environmental conditions throughout all of those regions in which we operate.”
