Rosneft started experimental production at Turonian deposits of Yamal

22 December 2014

Rosneft started experimental production of tight gas reserves of the Turonian field at the Kharampurskoye field, situated at the territory of the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District. First produced gas is already delivered to the gas booster station of the Kharampurskoye field.

In order to engage tight reserves into upstream, the Company initiated a target innovative project “Selection and development of tight Turonian gas deposits technology”. RN-Purneftegaz became the site for implementation of the innovative project.

Five leading scientific research and engineering institutes of the Company were involved in the project, therefore technologies and special equipment were chosen. In the course of scientific research carried out by RN-UfaNIPIneft, methods and technologies of tight gas field exploitation were determined and recommended for further tests at the experimental block of the Kharampurskoye field.

To choose an effective way of production, industrial experiment works were carried out, during which three wells of different constructions were drilled, and a wide range of research conducted.

At the moment the wells are in the experimental operation mode. During the year specialists will study dynamics of different factors and as a result will determine a technology, providing successful performance of commercial operation of Turonian deposits at all licensed blocks of the Company.

Notes for Editors:

Turonian deposits are related to category of tight reserves. They are characterized by poor porosity and permeability charecteristics, so traditional development of such deposits is ineffective.

Reserves of the Kharampurskoye field make over 30% of Rosneft’s gas deposits in the region.

RN-Purneftegaz, a subsidiary of Rosneft, is situated in the town of Gubkinsky in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District.

Core activities of RN-Purneftegaz are geologic data survey performance as well as oil, gas and gas condensate fields development. Production is carried out at 13 fields. In the course of fields development the enterprise produced over 240 mln tons of oil and gas condensate, as well as more than 85 cbm of gas.
