The oil production of NGDU Sorochinskneft in January–June 2010 amounted to 4.878 mln tons. The company is planning to produce a total of 9.95 mln tons of oil by the end of 2010 (compared to 9.165 mln tons in 2009).
According to Oleg Toropchin, head of Sorochinskneft, 37 oil and gas fields are on the balance of the company, and intensive drilling works are being performed in them. 45 development wells and 2 exploration wells will be put into operation by the end of this year, and the number of well interventions will grow up to 529. Use of new advanced technologies raises the efficiency of works in the fields. A pilot project that is now being implemented at 20 wells in the Sorochinsko-Nikolskoe field uses double-suction electrical submersible pumps. The effect of their use has exceeded the expectations.
In the Samodurovskoe and Ponomarevskoe fields, geologists use carbon-oxygen well—logging, which makes it possible to find missed oil deposits. Implementation of a polymer flooding project was started in the Tokskoe field for enhanced oil recovery.
Apart from that, three-dimensional seismic exploration works, including three-dimensional scanning of underground structures, are being performed in the fields for raising the efficiency and reducing the duration and cost of exploration works.
