About Gazprom dobycha Yamburg
Gazprom dobycha Yamburg holds licenses for the development of five production fields: Yamburgskoye, Zapolyarnoye, Tazovskoye, Yuzhno-Parusovoye and Severo-Parusovoye fields.
The Company well stock comprises over 2400 gas and condensate wells. The total length of operated gas flow-lines is over 2000 km. Gazprom dobycha Yamburg carries out exploration works independently, annually allocating to these means some 4 billion rubles.
Gazprom dobycha Yamburg has been operating in the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug since 1984. The history of the Company started with the development of the Yamburgskoye oil gas condensate field and it ranks the fifth in the world in terms of initial reserves of 6, 9 trillion cubic meters of gas.
First cubic meters of gas were shipped to the trunk pipeline on September 22, 1986. 9 comprehensive gas treatment units and 5 pre-treatment gas units are in operation at the Yamburgskoye oil, gas and condensate field.
In the long term, raw hydrocarbons will be supplied from adjoining to Yamburg gas bearing areas to the released capacities of the Yamburgskoye field. Among them are the fields in the offshore area of the Ob and Taz bays.
The Zapolyarnoye oil, gas and condensate field is one of the largest in the world. Its initial reserves account for more than 3.5 trillion cubic meters of gas, some 60 million tons of gas condensate and 20 million tons of oil. Commercial production of the Zapolyarnoye field began with the development of the Cenomanian deposit in 2001. Hydrocarbon production is currently provided at five comprehensive gas treatment units — three Cenomanian and two Valanginian. In December 2012, the first trillion cubic meter of gas was produced from the field. In 2013, the Zapolyarnoye oil, gas and condensate field was brought to its full design capacity of 130 billion cubic meters of gas per year. The Zapolyarnoye oil, gas and condensate field is one the most powerful fields in Russia.
The personnel, engaged in field development works, on a rotation basis. Rotational workforce resides in the settlements of Yamburg and Zapolyarnoye the infrastructure of which meets social and cultural needs of rotational staff.
