Seismological surveys have already been conducted on the block which covers an area of 140 square kilometres

"Gazprom Neft has only been working in the Orenburg region for a few years, but our output has practically tripled over that period,” said Vadim Yakovlev, first deputy CEO of Gazprom Neft.

“We will continue to push this metric up and are aiming to produce 8.5 million tonnes of hydrocarbons per year by 2020."

Seismological surveys have already been conducted on the block which covers an area of 140 square kilometres. Gazprom Neft Orenburg will continue geological surveying for more accurate data on the reserves.

The acquisition of the Kuvay block, adjacent to the Tsarichanskoye field which is owned by Gazprom Neft Orenburg, will deliver additional synergies within the infrastructure for preparing and transporting oil and utilisation of associated petroleum gas.
