DeGolyer & MacNaughton to study Priobskoye EOR

June 1, 2018

Gazprom-Neft has entered an agreement with DeGolyer & MacNaughton Corp., Dallas, on the selection and use of enhanced oil recovery methods for giant Priobskoye field in the Khanti-Mansi Autonomous District of West Siberia.

The Russian company said DeGolyer & MacNaughton will “analyze the history of the Priobskoye since its discovery, assess the potential for increasing production and increasing the oil recovery factor, formulate recommendations for realizing this potential, and address the immediate challenges and problems in developing the Yuzhny (Southern) license block” of the field. The work will occur during 2018-20.

In an April 2016 announcement about production of the 100 millionth tonne of oil from Yuzhno-Priobskoye, Gazprom-Neft said the field, known to have complex geology, was producing 32,000 tonnes/day from 2,000 wells.
