A three way partnership of Russian gasoline monopoly Gazprom and Germany’s Wintershall Dea, Achim Development, began gasoline and gasoline condensate manufacturing from Block 5А within the Achimov formations of the Urengoyskoye subject throughout the framework of complete testing of the mission gear, Gazprom stated.
Earlier in January 2021, hydrocarbon manufacturing started at Block 4А within the Achimov formations of the Urengoyskoye subject.
Currently, each blocks – 4А and 5А – are within the part of complete testing, and gasoline is being fed into Gazprom’s gasoline transmission system, Gazprom stated.
The pre-development of the blocks is carried out underneath harsh pure and weather conditions and in complicated geological buildings. The hydrocarbons lie at a depth of about 4,000 meters with abnormally excessive formation pressures (as much as 62 MPa).
Upon the completion of the great testing, manufacturing shall be step by step ramped as much as reach its design capability by 2027. The manufacturing will quantity to over 14 billion cubic meters of pure gasoline and over 5 million tons of gasoline condensate.
