OREANDA-NEWS. Gazprom Neft subsidiary Gazpromneft-Orenburg has discovered a new hydrocarbon field in the Novo-Sergievsky and Sorochinsky districts of the Orenburg oblast. Reserves-in-place at the Novozarinskoe field, located in the Uransky licence block, are in excess of 11 million tonnes of oil.

This would appear to confirm company specialists’ predictions of the Uransky block containing several small fields. The Novosamarskoye field was discovered here in 2016, with reserves-in-place estimated at more than eight million tonnes. Gazpromneft-Orenburg plans to drill a further three exploration and appraisal wells at the Uransky licence block in 2018.

Gazpromneft-Orenburg — a subsidiary of Gazprom Neft — operates throughout the Orenburgsky, Novo-Sergievsky and Perevolotsky districts, the city of Orenburg and the Sorochinsky municipal district.

Hydrocarbon production is ongoing at six fields: the Orenburgskoye oil and gas condensate field (Eastern bloc), and the Kapitonovskoye, Valeikinskoye, Tsarichanskoye+Filatovskoye, Zemlyanskoye and Novosamarskoye fields/
