Gazprom Neft subsidiary Gazpromneft-Orenburg has discovered a new hydrocarbon field in the Novo-Sergievsky and Sorochinsky districts of the Orenburg Oblast. Reserves-in-place at the Novozarinskoe field, located in the Uransky licence block, are in excess of 11 million tons of oil.
This would appear to confirm company specialistsā€™ predictions of the Uransky block containing several small fields. The Novosamarskoye field was discovered here in 2016, with reserves-in-place estimated at more than eight million tonnes. Gazpromneft-Orenburg plans to drill a further three exploration and appraisal wells at the Uransky licence block in 2018.
