The V. Vinogradov field is located within two license areas, Bolshoy and Olkhovsky. Consisting mostly of low-permeability reservoirs, the field has a complex geology, and is therefore developed using unique technologies while receiving special tax rates to stimulate its development.
The final stage of pilot testing a system unique for Russia was conducted at the field. This system is designed to drill horizontal wells using MSHF for both oil production and reservoir pressure maintenance. Actual results have proven the solution effectiveness.
