Gazprom Nedra LLC has successfully completed geological exploration work on the Arctic shelf in the navigation season of 2021. Two wells were built in the Kara Sea with the involvement of floating drilling rigs operated by Gazprom Flot LLC — the Arkticheskaya jack-up drilling rig and the Severnoye Siyaniye semi-submersible drilling rig.

The implementation of offshore projects of this scale became possible thanks to the well‑coordinated and efficient teamwork of specialists from Gazprom Group companies and involved companies participating in the activities.

“The comprehensive approach applied by our company to the design of offshore exploration works ensures their implementation is efficient and on time. In addition to fulfilling the main task of the systematic increase in hydrocarbon reserves in the license areas of Gazprom within the Priyamalsky shelf, we annually improve the methods of geological and geophysical research in Arctic conditions, introduce new technologies and optimise production processes,” said Vsevolod Cherepanov, General Director of Gazprom Nedra LLC.
