Rosneft has produced the 15-millionth ton of oil since the beginning of operation on Vankor field, the company reported in a news release.
The Vankor oil and gas field is located in the north of Krasnoyarsk Territory. Commercial oil production began in August 2009. 117 producing wells on 14 well pads deliver current daily production of 36,000 tons (more than 263,000 barrels per day). In the first 10 months of 2010 the Vankor field produced 11 mln tons of oil. The annual production plan for the year is 12.7 mln. tons, that’s 200,000 tons over planned volumes.
Facilities currently operating at the field include a booster pump station with preliminary water separation unit, as well as a diesel fuel production facility with capacity of 50 thousand tons a year to supply the company’s own needs.
Crude oil produced at the field is transported via the 556-kilometer Vankor – Purpe oil pipeline with three oil pumping stations connecting to the Transneft pipeline system. There are 150 km of infield pipelines, 60 km of gas pipelines, around 100 km of roads, 700 km of power lines and modern living quarters camps for 2000 people. Over 90% of equipment used on the field, that’s over 450 units, is produced in Russia.
In 2014 ZAO Vankorneft – a Rosneft subsidiary – will reach production volume of 25.5 mln tons per year in line with the development plan. This figure represents close to 5% of the total annual oil production in Russia.
