“Together with our partners, we continue the geological study of Tambey to prepare it for development. We explore the structure and volumes of hydrocarbon reserves at the field, as well as theoretical production capacity of wells, taking into account the use of advanced completion techniques. To improve the efficiency of additional field exploration and increase the reserves, we apply the directional drilling method,” Vsevolod Cherepanov, General Director of Gazprom Nedra LLC, said.

The wells are 4455 m and 4662 m deep, with vertical deviations of 1281 m and 1428 m, respectively. The wells are temporarily abandoned for the cold period. We plan to start testing them in the new drilling season.
