Gas and oil production
In 2015 Gazprom produced:
– 418.5 billion cubic meters of gas;
– 15.3 million tons of gas condensate;
– 36.0 million tons of oil.
Gas production strategy
Gazprom’s strategy is based on the principle of producing natural gas in volumes determined by demand.
The Yamal Peninsula, Eastern Siberia, the Far East and the Russian continental shelf are the strategic gas production regions for the long run.
Gazprom brings new fields into production pursuing the goal of cost effectiveness achieved through expansion of gas production facilities concurrently with transmission, comprehensive treatment and storage capacities.

Oil production strategy
The oil business development is one of Gazprom’s strategic missions. Gazprom Neft is the mainstay of Gazprom Group’s oil production.
By 2020 Gazprom Neft is going to increase hydrocarbons production up to 100 million tons of oil equivalent a year and maintain this level until 2025.
In order to achieve these goals, Gazprom Neft will seek to ensure the maximum efficiency in the extraction of remaining reserves in the current resource portfolio by applying the best optimization practices, bringing down the cost of proven technologies as well as introducing and adopting new technologies on a large scale. It is planned to establish a new gas production center in the north of the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Area as well as to expand the Company’s presence in the Arctic shelf.
Gazprom Group production capacities in Russia
As of December 31, 2015 Gazprom Group was developing 138 hydrocarbon fields in the Russian Federation. The Nadym-Pur-Taz oil and gas bearing region in the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Area remains the major gas production area of Gazprom. The Group develops its oil deposits primarily in the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Area and the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Area-Yugra as well as in the Tomsk, Omsk, Orenburg and Irkutsk Regions.
