EXPLORATION AND PRODUCTION

Development of resource potential and efficient development of subsoil are the priority tasks of PJSC NGK Inzerneft. Prospecting and exploration of hydrocarbon deposits in the licensed areas of the company is carried out by Megion Geology LLC (Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug – Yugra) and Baikitskaya Oil and Gas Exploration Expedition LLC (Krasnoyarsk Territory).

PJSC NGK Inzerneft and its subsidiaries hold licenses for prospecting, exploration and production of oil and gas at 35 subsoil plots where 37 oil and gas fields are located, including:

in the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug – Yugra – Aganskoye, Arigolskoye, Achimovskoye , Vatinskoe, Vakhskoe, East-Okhteurskoe, West-Asomkinskoe, West-Pokamasovskoe, West-Ust-Balykskoe, West-Chistinskoe, Ininskoe, Ketovskoe, Kysomskoe, Lugovoe, Maksimkinskoe, Malochernogorskoe, Megionskoe, Mykhpayskoe, Novo-Pokurskoe , Polevoye, Pyatkovskoye, Samotlorskoye, Severo-Negusyakhskoye, Severo-Orekhovskoye, Severo-Ostrovnoye, Severo-Pokurskoye, Taylakovskoye, Uzunskoye, Chistinnoye, Yuzhno-Aganskoye, Yuzhno-Ostrovnoye, Yuzhno-Pokamasovskoye and Yuzhno-Chistinskoye.

in the Krasnoyarsk Territory– Kuyumbinskoye field (geographically located in four license areas: Kuyumbinsky, Kordinsky, Abrakupchinsky and part of the Tersko-Kamovskoye) and Yurubcheno-Tokhomskoye field (North-eastern section of the Tersko-Kamovsky block).

In 2020, as a result of a complex of geological exploration work, the use of new technologies in production drilling and the transfer of discovered hydrocarbon reserves to industrial categories AB 1 C 1, the company ensured the replenishment of the resource base by 220% (+ 21.4 million tonnes). In Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug-Yugra, 6 new oil deposits were discovered and added to the balance of the State Commission for Mineral Reserves, located in the Megionsky, Taylakovsky, Ketovsky, Zapadno-Asomkinsky and Yuzhno-Ostrovnoy license areas.

An independent audit of the hydrocarbon reserves of PJSC NGK Inzerneft in 2020 was carried out by the international consulting company DeGolyer and MacNaughton.
