Myldzhinskoye oil, gas and condensate field
The company specializes in gas, oil and condensate exploration and production, as well as employs a comprehensive approach to developing small- and medium-sized fields with complex geological structure and hydrocarbon composition.
Vostokgazprom’s core producing asset is Tomskgazprom, which owns subsurface use licenses for seven licensed blocks (Kazansky, Ostaninsky, Rybalny, Myldzhynsky, Severo-Vasyugansky, Chkalovsky, and Somovsky) located in the Tomsk Region and develops nine fields. Every year, Tomskgazprom extracts and prepares for transportation over 3.5 billion cubic meters of natural gas and over 1.5 million tons of liquid hydrocarbons.
Raw materials produced and prepared for transportation are shipped for consumption to Siberian regions and for processing to Sibmetakhim (Vostokgazprom’s subsidiary), which produces chemical products, namely methanol, formalin, and urea formaldehyde concentrate.
Vostokgazprom adheres to Gazprom’s corporate principles and environmental standards, as well as complies with all necessary environmental regulations and requirements.
Ensuring environmental safety at production facilities and minimizing harmful emissions into the atmosphere, harmful discharges into waters, and waste accumulation are the company’s priorities in preserving nature and mitigating negative environmental impacts.
The company is at the leading edge in extracting and utilizing associated petroleum gas. The associated gas use level at Vostokgazprom’s oil, gas and condensate fields exceeds 95 per cent.
In 2015, the environmental management system of the Tomskgazprom producing company was certified for compliance with the requirements of the international ISO 14001:2004 standard.
Vostokgazprom’s dynamic development contributes to increasing economic stability in the region and solving social problems in northern districts of the Tomsk Region.

Company offers opportunities for professional growth
Every year, Vostokgazprom and the authorities of the Kargasoksky and Parabelsky districts sign agreements of mutual cooperation in social and economic development. Funds provided under those agreements are used for the construction and renovation of kindergartens, schools, and health institutions. Between 2005 and 2015, Vostokgazprom invested some RUB 270 million in social projects of the Tomsk Region.

Since 2000, Vostokgazprom has sponsored a floating clinic for remote northern settlements on a yearly basis. This social project was revived by the company and supported by the authorities of the Tomsk Region. Today, it is the most notable charitable initiative in the region, which provides over 5,000 people in the northern localities with comprehensive diagnostic examination and medical care.
In the coming years, Vostokgazprom will continue to implement large-scale investment projects. The company plans, inter alia, to construct a comprehensive treatment unit for gas and condensate from the Kazanskoye oil, gas and condensate field; complete the reconstruction of a comprehensive treatment unit for gas and condensate from the Myldzhinskoye oil, gas and condensate field; and put onstream gas wells at the Ostaninskoye oil, gas and condensate field.

In 2016, the company will launch the construction of a rail terminal for shipment and storage of a technical propane/butane mixture in the Novosibirsk Region. This facility together with a 469-kilometer-long pipeline will form an infrastructure for shipping over 500,000 tons of liquefied hydrocarbon gases per year.
