Construction of new gas facility GP-1
Gazprom gradually builds up its production capacities in the Bovanenkovskoye field and develops the Cenomanian-Aptian deposits. The annual design capacity of the new gas facility (GP-1) is 30 billion cubic meters.
As a comparison, it is more than the Company will be producing from the Chayandinskoye field, the largest one in Yakutia.Earlier in 2012, the first gas facility (GP-2, 60 billion cubic meters) was launched at the Bovanenkovskoye field. A total of three gas facilities with 115 billion cubic meters in annual capacity will operate in the Cenomanian-Aptian deposits.
Well cluster No. 52 of gas facility No. 1 at Bovanenkovskoye field
Innovation technologies and engineering solutions were applied while building the new gas facility. In particular, the single technical infrastructure is used for extracting gas from productive deposits at different depths – Cenomanian (520 to 700 meters) and Aptian-Albian ones (1,200 to 2,000 meters).
It saves construction expenditures and increases field productivity.
