Launch of second stage of Urengoyskoe field

16 December 2014

SeverEnergia (a joint venture between NOVATEK and Gazprom Neft) launches the second stage of the Urengoyskoye field (within the Samburgskiy license area) including the second train of the gas condensate de-ethanization unit. Overall capacity of the two stages of field development  is approximately 13 billion cubic meters (bcm) of natural gas and more than 4.7 million tons of de-ethanized gas condensate per annum.

The wells drilled at the Urengoyskoye field target the Achimov deposits, which are characterized by relatively high depth (approximately 3,700 meters) and high share of gas condensate in the hydrocarbon flow.
