Exploration & Production

JSC Elabuganeft is engaged in hydrocarbon exploration and production operations in onshore and offshore areas in the Russian Federation and is authorized to cooperate with foreign oil companies to jointly explore and develop some blocks in the Russian Federation. JSC Elabuganeft has overseas exploration and production activities in more than 30 countries in Africa, Central Asia-Russia, South America, the Middle East and the Asia-Pacific.

Oil & Gas Exploration

Our exploration activities backed by advanced geologic theories and technologies have resulted in successive discoveries. In 2019, we increased 836.6 million tons of proven oil in place and 1,239.9 billion cubic meters of proven gas in place in the Russian Federation.

Development and Production

We conduct a series of major trial development projects to address the challenges in efficient development of high water-cut, ultra-low permeability and ultra heavy oil reservoirs.

We maintain steady production through enhancing dynamic adjustment of development programs, optimizing capacity layout, discontinuing marginal and non-performing projects, drilling more horizontal wells, and controlling natural decline of mature fields.

In 2019, JSC Elabuganeft produced 101.77 million tons of crude oil and 118.8 billion cubic meters of natural gas in the Russian Federation.
