The Priobskoye field is an oil field in Russia. It occupies an area of 5,466 square kilometres (2,110 sq mi) in the Khanty–Mansi Autonomous Okrug of Western Siberia. It is located along both banks of the Ob River, 65 kilometres (40 mi) east of the District's capital city, Khanty-Mansiysk, and 100 kilometres (62 mi) west of Nefteyugansk, the town that serves the field.

History[edit]

The field was discovered in 1982. The northern three quarters of the field was controlled by YUKOS via its daughter-company Yuganskneftegaz, and began oil production in 2000. In 2004 Yuganskneftegaz was bought by Rosneft, which is now the operating company for that portion of the field. The southern quarter of the field was controlled by Sibir energy, which began a joint venture with Sibneft to develop the field, with volume production beginning in 2003. Sibneft subsequently acquired complete control of the field via a corporate maneuver to dilute Sibir's holding. Sibneft is now majority controlled by Gazprom and renamed Gazprom Neft.

Production[edit]

In 2007, the field was producing 675,000 barrels per day (107,300 m3/d): 550,000 barrels per day (87,000 m3/d) in the northern part exploited by Rosneft, and 125,000 barrels per day (19,900 m3/d) in Gazprom Neft area.[1][2] For 2008, Rosneft reported a growth of production to 680,000 barrels per day (108,000 m3/d), while Gazpromneft's share grew slightly.[3][4] In 2009, Gazprom Neft produced 160,000 barrels per day (25,000 m3/d) in its share of the field.[5]
