Gas and oil production

In 2013 Gazprom produced:
– 487.4 billion cubic meters of gas;
– 14.7 million tons of gas condensate;
– 33.8 million tons of oil.

Gas production strategy

In its strategy Gazprom is committed to the principle of producing as much gas as demanded. Provided there are favorable conditions in foreign and domestic markets, as well as solvent consumer demand in Russia, Gazprom may produce up to 650–670 billion cubic meters of gas a year by 2020.

The Yamal Peninsula, Eastern Siberia, the Far East and the Russian continental shelf are the strategic regions of gas production in the long term.

Gazprom’s strategy for promising gas fields development hinges on cost effectiveness achieved through building up gas production facilities in sync with gas transmission, 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.

Gazprom Neft is determined to increase oil production to 100 million tons of oil equivalent a year by 2020 (output of subsidiary and associated companies included).

The plan to reach the 2020 production level stipulates stagewise involvement of all the explored oil fields of Gazprom Neft in the production process and the resource base buildup through commissioning of oil fields being on the balance of other companies of the Group. The asset portfolio will be expanded through acquisition of oil acreage in the non-licensed stock and the purchase of assets.

In 2010 gas condensate output grew 11.9 per cent to 11.3 million tons, oil output – 1.3 per cent to 32 million tons.

Some 30 per cent of the oil output was produced from Priobskoye – the Group’s most promising oil field, which is located in the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug.

Hydrocarbon resources development abroad

Gazprom Group and some of its affiliated companies are involved in a number of international projects on hydrocarbon feedstock exploration and production. In 2010 Naftna Industrija Srbije (NIS), a Serbian company forming part of the Group, significantly stepped up its oil production to 1 million tons.

Libyan oil concessions C96 and C97 owned by Wintershall (affiliated company with a 49 per cent stake held by Gazprom Group) yielded 0.2 billion cubic meters of gas and 2 million tons of liquid hydrocarbons in 2010.

Gas Project Development Central Asia (affiliated company with a 50 per cent stake owned by Gazprom Group) together with Gazprom Zarubezhneftegaz (Gazprom’s subsidiary) are executing the project for the Shakhpakhty field pre-development in Uzbekistan. The total amount of gas produced within the project from August 2004 through September 2011 reaches some 1.8 billion cubic meters.
