Rosneft and Statoil on September 7, 2017, signed the shareholders and operating agreement at the Eastern Economic Forum. The document is signed with regards to SevKomNeftegaz, an enterprise that will serve as a basis for a future North-Komsomolskoye joint field development.

Statoil is planning to acquire 33,3% in SevKomNeftegaz. The agreement also approves the principles of the asset management at the development stage.
The Parties emphasized successful implementation of the pilot project on drilling and testing 2 wells for high-viscous oil production from the PK1 formation of the North-Komsomolskoye: due to the works carried out in 2015-2016, 2P oil and condensate reserves (PRMS) of the field increased from 52 to 111 million tons.
Development of the field will give Rosneft an opportunity to involve new reserves of high-viscous oil into production and realize exploration potential of the license block as well as facilitate the replenishment of the resources base and maintain the oil production level in the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous District.
