GAZPROM DOBYCHA ASTRAKHAN, a subsidiary of GAZPROM, extracts raw materials and processes them into commercial products.
Gazprom Dobycha Astrakhan has since 1981 developed the Astrakhan gas condensate field, commissioned in 1976. Development of the field is complicated by the great depth of producing formations and a significant (> 25%) content of hydrogen sulfide. In 2015, a new project for extension of the field was prepared, which for the first time substantiated a cost-effective development period for the field up to 2022. Today, one promising project for efficient hydrocarbon production at the field is the construction of essentially horizontal well bores. Applied for the first time at the Astrakhan field, this new technique improves the drilling process by applying the optimal well design for specific conditions, increasing production potential by 2-3 times.
Today, Gazprom Dobycha Astrakhan is the largest gas-producing enterprise in the South of Russia. Gazprom Dobycha Astrakhan actively initiates and integrates research and design work in a number of prospective areas, such as drilling fishbone wells, constructing intelligent wells and inventing modern construction materials resistant to hydrogen sulfide corrosion.
The GAZPROM UNDERGROUND GAS STORAGE (Gazprom UGS), a 100% Gazprom subsidiary, unites underground gas storage facilities located in the Russian Federation. Currently, Gazprom UGS operates 22 storage facilities built in 26 geological structures (17 in depleted gas fields, 8 in aquifers, 1 in rock salt deposits). UGS operating well stock is 2 685.
Gazprom UGS was founded on March 19, 2007 as part of a restructuring of Gazprom’s corporate management structure for injection and storage of natural gas. It united all Russian facilities of underground storage of gas located in 19 members of the Russian Federation.
The company has 25 branches located in the country’s main gas consumption areas: from the Kaliningrad region to the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous District and from the Leningrad region to the Stavropol Territory. The branches comprise 19 departments for underground gas storage, 4 departments for emergency recovery and well overhaul, an engineering and technical center and the department for logistics and equipment.
GAZPROM DOBYCHA URENGOY, which produces natural gas, gas condensate, and oil, is engaged in the preparation of hydrocarbons for transportation and the development of hydrocarbon reserves. The enterprise manages such hydrocarbon reserves as Urengoy, Yen-Yakhinsk, North Urengoy, and Pestsovoye fields, as well as East Padinsky, South Pestsovoye, West Pestsovoye and Seyakhinsky areas.
Currently, Gazprom Dobycha Urengoy ranks first among Gazprom’s subsidiaries in production of unstable condensate. The main achievement of recent years has been the development of the geographically challenging Achimov deposits, which have a depth as low as four kilometers, abnormally high reservoir pressure and a high content of gas condensate.
Gazprom Dobycha Urengoy is also the leading Gazprom subsidiary in terms of oil production. In the coming years, apart from additional development of oil rims at the Urengoy field, the company will build three central production facilities at the Yen-Yakhinsk and Pestsov fields, as well as at the sixth Achimov section of the Urengoy field.
In 2002, Gazprom’s management board designated the Yamal Peninsula as a region of strategic interest for the company. As such, Gazprom Dobycha Urengoy’s further development prospects are associated with the development of the new Yamal deposits. On completion of exploration, the company will proceed to development and construction of the fields located in the northern Yamal Peninsula.
LUKOIL OIL COMPANY is one of the largest vertically-integrated public oil and gas companies in the world, accounting for more than 2% of global oil production and about 1% of proven hydrocarbon reserves. The company’s main activities are exploration, production and processing of oil and natural gas, and sales of oil and petroleum products.
LUKOIL explores for and produces hydrocarbons in 12 countries. Its main operations are concentrated in Russia, Central Asia and the Middle East.
The LUKOIL group possesses proven hydrocarbon reserves in six countries. Most of the reserves are classed as conventional – this is the company’s most important competitive advantage, providing low unit costs for development and production. Total reserves at the end of 2017 amounted to 19 years, higher than the average of 12 years for the largest private international oil and gas companies. LUKOIL is one of the leaders among international and Russian companies in terms of proven reserves and their quality.
Offshore fields and high-viscosity oil account for about 11% of proven reserves. About half of the proven reserves for international projects are located in Uzbekistan, where the Company is actively developing gas projects.
Given the large scale of its reserves, the company’s top priority is the implementation of new projects in order to increase production volumes. These projects involve both the development of new fields and the stimulation of production at mature fields, through the use of modern techniques and an increase in both production drilling and the number of well operations to improve oil recovery.
The VORONEZH MECHANICAL PLANT, which has many years of experience in mechanical engineering, is today a widely specialized enterprise that produces products for various industries.
The plant’s foundation in recent decades has been the production of liquid propellant rocket engines, including engines for the Soyuz, Soyuz-TM, Progress and Proton space launch vehicles, the long-term orbital stations Salyut and Mir, and the unique Energia-Buran reusable spacecraft complex. The plant specialised in new “space” technologies that had previously not been used in the country, developing new grades of steels and alloys and manufacturing unique bench equipment. Currently, the plant is responsible for the production of components and assemblies for the Angara and Rus launch vehicles.
The experience gained over the years and the plant’s high research and engineering potential have enabled it to master the production of a wide range of oil and gas equipment, turbo compressors, complex units for diesel locomotives and other equipment.
The Mechanical Plant’s entry into the production of import-substituting oil and gas equipment was a landmark event for the Russian oil and gas industry.
The plant has repeatedly been awarded Russian Government prizes in science and technology and for high quality. An ISO 9001 certification confirms the high quality of all the plant’s products.
