Progress on the Programme to Increase APG Utilisation Rates

In 2019, the APG utilisation rate for mature assets, excluding greenfield projects and fields under development where gas infrastructure is yet to be erected, reached 93.8%, up 1.0% year-on-year. If greenfield projects at early stages of development are excluded, the APG utilisation rate stands at 89.3%. If fields under development and greenfield projects at early stages of development are included, the APG utilisation rate amounts to 77.8%.

23 APG utilisation facilities were completed in 2019, including:

  • 18 MW gas turbine power plant commissioned at Kondaneft’s Zapadno-Erginskoye field;
  • compressor station at the oil treatment unit and vacuum compressor station at the preliminary water discharge facility of the Dvurechenskoye field operated by Tomskneft VNK;
  • compressor station at the Pravdinskoye field, low-stage compressor station at the preliminary water discharge facility of booster pump station No. 4 of the Malobalykskoye field, and low-stage compressor station at the booster pump station with a preliminary water discharge facility at well pad 354 operated by RN-Yuganskneftegaz.
APG production in 2019
34.2  bcm

Other facilities provide for APG gathering, treatment and transportation.

In 2019, APG utilisation improvement projects at Bashneft-Dobycha helped achieve a 95% utilisation rate.
