TOMSK, Jun 3 – RIA Tomsk. Gazprom Neft CEO Alexander Dyukov and Governor of the Tomsk region Sergey Zhvachkin agreed to create a technological field testing site in the region to test and introduce advanced tools for searching for hard-to-recover oil; the company will present a prototype of industrial technology by the end of 2021, Gazprom Neft's press service reports.

It is specified that Gazprom Neft is implementing a large-scale Paleozoic project in the Tomsk region to develop hydrocarbons from pre-Jurassic deposits. It will make it possible to produce up to 1.3 million additional tons of hard-to-recover oil annually from 2025. At the St. Petersburg Economic Forum on Thursday, Dyukov and Zhvachkin signed an agreement to expand the project, which will complement the 2019 Memorandum on Technological Partnership with the company.

"Gazprom Neft and the administration of the Tomsk region plan to create in the region the first in Russia technological field testing site to test and introduce advanced tools for prospecting reserves of the pre-Jurassic complex. The partners intend to jointly establish laboratories for specialized research and applied developments. Cooperation in the sphere of education and scientific-technological activity will continue", – says the report.

Within the framework of the project the partners plan to develop a digital platform. It is a virtual model of the field testing site and online database of research and testing. To implement the project, efforts were joined with Tomsk Polytechnic University (TPU). Today, the development of Paleozoic deposits is already underway in the Tomsk region in the fields of Gazpromneft-Vostok.

"Already by the end of 2021, we will present a prototype of Russian industrial technology for the exploration and production of Paleozoic hydrocarbons. The project is of great importance for the industry, as the prospects of oil production development are connected with pre-Jurassic reserves not only in the Tomsk region, but also in other Siberian regions", – Alexander Dyukov is quoted as saying.

According to plans, in 2024-2025 the technology will be replicated for the study and development of Paleozoic deposits in the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug – Yugra and Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug.

"Today we need a technological breakthrough that will give a second breath to our oil industry. The search for new efficient technologies of hard-to-recover hydrocarbons production is a task of the national scale. However, our Tomsk scientists and production workers have all the chances to solve this task together with Gazprom Neft's powerful scientific and technological block", – Zhvachkin is quoted.

Mutually beneficial import substitution

Also at the St. Petersburg Economic Forum the company and the region signed an agreement on cooperation in the field of import substitution and supply of high-tech lubricants and bituminous materials. The company is interested in buying high-tech industrial and scientific and technical products of the region, and the Tomsk region – in the use of bituminous materials, including for road construction.

According to the press service, in the eight years since the launch of joint work, the volume of purchases by Gazprom Neft enterprises of Tomsk high-tech products has increased more than 20 times – from 900 million rubles in 2013 to almost 22 billion in 2020. The company's partner pool includes about 40 Tomsk enterprises.

"The new agreement will strengthen and expand our partnership with the Tomsk region. The replacement of imported lubricants with Gazprom Neft's high-quality oils and the use of our company's high-tech bitumens in road construction and housing and public utilities no doubt contribute to the effective development of infrastructure, the transport sector and other areas of the regional economy", – Dyukov is quoted in the statement.
