Gazprom Begins Oil Production from Prirazlomnoye Field

“Gazprom” has started oil production from its  Prirazlomnoye  field. The Prirazlomnoye field was discovered in 1989. It is located on the Pechora Sea shelf 60 kilometers off the shore at the water depth of 19 to 20 meters.

Built by Sevmash Production Association, the Prirazlomnaya offshore ice-resistant oil-producing platform is a key pre-development facility. The platform will ensure well drilling, oil production, storage and offloading. The main features are its resistance to strong ice loads, long self-sustainability and year-round operability. 40 slanted wells will be drilled from it.

The Prirazlomnaya platform is designed to receive oil from other fields as well. A single platform will enable to involve adjacent fields into efficient development and to reduce infrastructure-associated costs.

The whole project has been heavily criticized by the environment groups. Greenpeace has said that the actions by the Russian oil and gas giant will raise the risk of an oil spill in an area that contains three nature reserves protected by Russian law.
