Russia’s northernmost active oil field enters commercial production

“The exploration of the Russian Arctic holds strategic importance for Gazprom. Step by step, we bring into development new gas and oil fields and build the required infrastructure in this challenging region with enormous potential. This past spring, we have successfully put in operation the unique Arctic Gate oil loading terminal to ensure year-round shipments of Yamal oil. Today, we have launched commercial production from Vostochno-Messoyakhskoye, the northernmost of Russia’s active onshore oil fields. The new Arctic project will be a key part of Russia’s powerful oil and gas complex in the circumpolar North.”

“The launch of the Incahuasi field is a landmark event for the energy industries of Bolivia and South America at large. Together with our Bolivian partners, we are pushing forward the continent's most advanced and cutting-edge industry, which, in its turn, serves as a powerful driver for the country's economy.”

Speech by Alexey Miller at Eastern Economic Forum 2016

“Today, Gazprom is the world's leader in terms of natural gas production, as well as in terms of exports. The Company is the leading pipeline gas supplier. Our current projects are breaking new ground in the gas industry. The gas trunklines being built by Gazprom are the world's most advanced long-distance pipelines. I am pleased to note that we have reached an operating pressure of 120 atmospheres in the gas trunklines we construct.”
