Gazpromneft Shelf, a subsidiary of Gazprom Neft, has brought 4 new wells online at the offshore Prirazlomnoye field located in the Pechora Sea.

Two of the wells are production wells (its third and fourth) and the remaining two are the second and third injection wells at the field.  Drilling for the four new wells was undertaken by Russia’s Gazprom Bureniyea and they ran to more than 19,000 metres.

Daily production on the Prirazlomnaya ice-resistant offshore rig has now breached 6,000 tonnes.

Gennady Lubin, executive director, Gazpromneft Shelf, commented: “The commissioning of these new wells is fully in line with planned field development. Each new well signifies an expansion in capacity and an increase in production volumes — something that is only possible under stringent and consistent compliance with industrial and ecological safety standards.”

Development of the Prirazlomnoye field, under implementation by Gazprom Neft, envisages the commissioning of 32 wells, the first production well having been commissioned in December 2013.
