Gazprom Neft Produces Its 10 Millionth Tonne of Oil at Prirazlomnoye

Gazprom Neft Shelf has produced its 10-millionth tonne of oil at its Prirazlomnoye field — a fact confirmed by Andrey Patrushev, Deputy CEO for Offshore Development, Gazprom Neft, at this year’s International Arctic Forum.

Unique technological and logistical solutions mean oil is being produced, stored, shipped and transported all year round under the ultra-challenging environmental and climatic conditions of the waters of the Arctic. The Prirazlomnaya offshore platform is set directly on the sea bed — something that enables it to withstand storm winds, waves up to nine metres high, and ice floes up to two metres thick. The sea-depth around the platform’s location reaches up to 20 metres.

December 2018 marks five years since commercial production started at the Prirazlomnaya platform — Russia’s first project on the Arctic Shelf. Seventeen wells have been drilled at the field since then, including the longest well drilled in the company’s history, at 6,474 metres. Construction of two further wells is expected to be completed before the end of 2019. Well stock is expected to increase over the next few years to reach projected level of 32.

The average depth of oil-bearing strata at the field is 2,500 metres. Peak production volumes at the Prirazlomnoye field are expected to reach 4.8 million tonnes per year.

The landmark ten-millionth tonne of oil will be shipped by the Mikhail Ulyanov Arctic shuttle tanker which, alongside the Kirill Lavrov tanker, ensures year-round oil shipments from the field. Following transportation to the Umba storage tanker, road-mounted in the non-freezing waters of the Kola Bay near Murmansk, ARCO-blend oil (Arctic oil) is sent to Europe in standard tanker shipments.

Andrey Patrushev, Deputy CEO for Offshore Development, Gazprom Neft, commented: “The 10-millionth tonne of oil produced today at the Prirazlomnoye field, together with platform’s five years’ uninterrupted commercial usage under the most challenging weather conditions, confirms our leadership in the commercial development of the Arctic Shelf.

During that time we have also been able to prove it is possible for nature and oil and gas infrastructure to co-exist safely. We will be using the unique experience Gazprom Neft has gained at the Prirazlomnoye field in our work on the company’s other offshore projects.”
