Novatek Launches Eastern Dome of North-Urengoyskoye Field (Russia)
NOVATEK announced the launch of the Eastern dome of the North-Urengoyskoye field developed by the Nortgas joint venture.
Eighteen production wells have been completed at the Eastern dome, and its infrastructure includes a gas treatment facility with annual capacity of six billion cubic meters, gas gathering networks, gas and gas condensate pipelines to the Western dome of the field. The Eastern dome allows the joint venture to achieve peak production capacity of more than 10 bcm of natural gas and 1.4 million tons of gas condensate already in 2014.
According to NOVATEK’s CEO, Leonid Mikhelson, “We acquired our equity stake in Nortgas less than twelve months ago, and the Eastern dome of the North-Urengoyskoye field has been prepared for production launch within a very short period of time and is an important contributing factor in our gas and gas condensate production growth. The expected ramp up of gas condensate production is fully synchronized with the expansion of our processing facilities”.
