Company history

Krasnoyarskgazdobycha was set up on December 23, 2004 and later on renamed Gazprom Dobycha Krasnoyarsk. The main objectives of the company were implementation and development of Gazprom’s projects for the hydrocarbon feedstock base formation, gas fields development and gasification of the Krasnoyarsk Krai.

Geological exploration

Geological exploration

The company focused on exploration operations within 17 licensed blocks with a total area of 55 000 square kilometers: Sobinsky, Omorinsky, Beryambinsky, Taimbinsky, Tetersky, Chunsky, Biryusinsky, Arakansky, Yudokonsky, Troitsky, Karabulsky, Abakansky and others.

As a result of exploration activities, new hydrocarbon fields were discovered: Kamovskoye oil field and Abakanskoye gas field.

The company discovered a new gas condensate deposit in the Omorinskoye gas and condensate field and a number of new prospects. The Salairskaya area of the Omorinsky licensed block in Evenkia and the Imbinsky licensed block near Nizhny Priangarye reported commercial gas inflow.

As ordered by Gazprom’s Management Committee Chairman Alexey Miller, Gazprom dobycha Krasnoyarsk was renamed Gazprom Geologorazvedka in 2011 and became a subsidiary company responsible for arrangement and execution of geological exploration work in all of onshore and offshore licensed blocks owned by Gazprom and its subsidiary companies in the Russian Federation.

The decision to make Gazprom dobycha Krasnoyarsk a specialized company was taken on the basis of investigation and positive evaluation of the company’s experience in geological survey, implementation of technological solutions and optimization of geological exploration costs in poorly explored subsurface areas of the Krasnoyarsk Krai.

Major activities

The company performs the following activities:

  • execution of a whole set of exploration operations for discovering new hydrocarbon fields and deposits onshore and offshore;
  • implementation of unified requirements for arrangement and execution of geological exploration work;
  • coordination of efforts by specialized contracting organizations taking part in geological exploration processes;
  • optimization of the cost management system for geological exploration work based on the investment approach;
  • project approach in arranging and financing of geological exploration work taking into account the necessary combination of organizational, legal, design, financial, engineering and process operations;
  • implementation of advanced R&D results in geological exploration;
  • cooperation with R&D institutions of Russia and Gazprom.

Environmental protection

Gazprom Geologorazvedka prioritizes compliance with federal laws on environmental protection and the Gazprom Environmental Policy.

The company pays great attention to environmental safety. It performs environmental monitoring at all of the licensed blocks and environmental process control at all of the geological exploration sites.

Gazprom Geologorazvedka pursues the strategic objective of improving the geological exploration work effectiveness in order to ensure an increase in Gazprom’s hydrocarbon feedstock reserves.

Further development of Gazprom Geologorazvedka hinges on centralized management of onshore and offshore geological exploration in Russian on the basis of planning principles and a unified project approach.

The specialized company will focus on an increase in Gazprom Group’s hydrocarbon feedstock reserves as part of the Gas Industry’s Mineral and Raw Material Base Development Program until 2035.
