Gazprom Management Committee examines progress with Bovanenkovsko field development

The Gazprom Management Committee took notice of the progress with the Bovanenkovo oil and gas condensate field on the Yamal Peninsula and the Bovanenkovo-Ukhta gas main system.

The meeting noted that the Bovanenkovo field development project is being executed in full pursuance of the schedule.


In January 2002, the Gazprom Management Committee identified the Yamal Peninsula as a region of Gazprom’s strategic interest. Commercial development of Yamal fields will help build up local gas production to 250 bcm/y. Accessing Yamal is of principled significance for securing gas extraction growth.

The Gazprom core business units were tasked with bringing onstream in the 3rdQ of 2011 first 15 bcm/y upstream facilities for the Cenomanian-Aptian deposits of the Bovanenkovo field as well as 1,100-km-long Bovanenkovo – Ukhta gas main system.

Aiming to start up construction of the Bovanenkovo-Ukhta gas main system in 2008, construction work is underway on provisional housing and installations, townships with pertinent materials being stockpiled.

The Ob-Bovanenkovo railroad is partly commissioned. En-route construction and installation activates are progressing on schedule. Construction of linear part, bridges, distribution lines and communication facilities crossing the Yubiley River is in progress.
