Imilorskoe field was put on stream in 2014 and is located in Surgut Region of Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug. The field has considerable geological potential, and the proximity to the well-developed infrastructure supported the preparations of the field for the commercial development in the shortest period.
The field’s development plan was updated and defended during the reviews by the relevant state agencies. The classification of over 70% of the field’s reserves as hard-to-recover (with a permeability of less than 2 millidarcy) was substantiated, making the project eligible for special tax rates. A decision was made to begin commercial development of the field.
Considering the field’s complex multilayer structure, a wide range of advanced well construction and completion technologies are applied in its development. We were able to increase the designed oil production level to 2.5 million tonnes per year through cost optimization initiatives and the use of modern approaches to developing hard-torecover reserves efficiently.
