«Gazprom Neft» proposes to create a polygon based on one of its license areas in the YNAO for development and testing of technology of development of the Achimov strata of recoverable reserves which are estimated to range from 0.5 to 1 billion tons of liquid hydrocarbons, Chairman of the Board of «Gazprom oil» Alexander Dyukov.
Dyukov noted that the involvement of these reserves in the development must overcome a number of technological challenges. «Gazprom oil» has created the industry’s first digital model of the Achimov sequence, learning objects in six regions of Russia on the territory of more than 1.5 million square kilometres mainly in the YNAO and KHMAO. «The company proposes to create a polygon based on one of its license areas in the YNAO. Thus, for the development and testing of technology of development of the Achimov sequence, it will be possible to combine the efforts of industry, academia, equipment manufacturers and the state», — stated in the message.
Earlier «Gazprom oil» has created in Ugra technology center «Bazhen», received the status of national project. The aim of the project is to unite the efforts of the various participants in the oil industry to create a range of domestic technologies and equipment for the effective development of the Bazhenov formation.
«Traditional fields in Western Siberia are exhausted, and the so-called «easy» oil that can be extracted by technologies of the past century, becoming less. And the demand for hydrocarbons is not only not diminished, but growing. Therefore, one of the main goals for the Russian oil industry is the creation of new effective technologies and equipment for working with hard-to-recover and unconventional reserves. So, only solution for cost-effective development of the Achimov sequence can provide additional production of 20-40 million tons of oil per year,» cited the press-service of the word Dyukov.
