Gazprom Neft has met annual production targets at its Prirazlomnaya offshore platform (the first and, thus far, the only project on the Russian Arctic Shelf at which commercial hydrocarbon production is currently ongoing), with a total 2,154,000 tonnes of “ARCO” (Arctic Oil) being produced at the Prirazlomnoye field in 2016 — an over 2.5-fold increase on 2015 volumes, which saw 800,000 tonnes of oil despatched to customers in North West Europe.

Oil produced at the Prirazlomnoye field is characterised by its high density (at approximately 906 kilogrammes per cubic metre), high sulphur content, low carbon residue, and the high volume of fractions that can used in lubricant production. Unique chemicals used in road construction, tyre production, and in the aerospace and pharmaceutical industries can be produced from ARCO oil.

Oil production at the Prirazlomnoye field commenced in December 2013, with the first consignment of the new Arctic oil despatched in April 2014 — the instruction to commence loading being given by President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin. Oil transportation from the field is being handled by two shuttle tankers — the Mikhail Ulyanov and the Kirill Lavrov.

Safety is foremost in all operations, with loading commencing only once 30 separate safety requirements are all complied with. The offloading line for the pumping of oil to tankers is equipped with an emergency shut-down system, allowing offloading to be terminated instantaneously.
