History

Samotlorneftegaz JSC is one of the largest producing companies of Rosneft, which is developing the Samotlorskoye field, one of the largest in Russia. Samotlorneftegaz JSC was established in March 1999 as a result of the reorganization of Nizhnevartovskneftegaz JSC. The Samotlorskoye field is located in the Nizhnevartovsk district of the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous District-Yugra of the Tyumen Region,15-60 km to the north and northeast of Nizhnevartovsk.

The main activities of the company that owns 9 licensed sites are exploration and development of oil and gas fields, drilling of appraisal, exploratory, pioneer, development wells; transportation, preparation, processing and sale of hydrocarbon raw materials, and development of oil and gas fields.

The area of a licensed site of Samotlor developed by Samotlorneftegaz is 2516.9 square m.  The field includes 9,370 production and 4,328 injection wells equipped with the latest high-tech equipment. The length of oil pipelines is 2,490 km, water pipelines - 2,422 km, other pipelines - 445 km. An extensive network of hard-surfaced roads with a total length of 1,923 km is laid throughout the field.

The Samotlorskoye field was discovered in 1965; it was put into commercial development in 1969. Industrial oil and gas potential was found in 18 productive reservoirs associated with the Jurassic and Cretaceous systems, lying at depths from 1600 to 2500 meters. Initial production rate of wells is 47-200 t/d. In 1981, a first billion ton of oil was extracted at the field. In 1990, a second billion ton of oil was produced. The peak of oil production (about 150 million tons per year) was at the beginning of the 1980s; due to intensive production in these years, the reservoirs began to water out and oil production fell sharply. In 1996, 16.74 million tons of oil were produced. In the 21st century, due to the use of modern methods of oil production intensification, its production doubled. In total, over 18,500 wells have been drilled over the years, and more than 2.7 billion tons of oil have been extracted, and more than 75% of the IRRs is withdrawn, while the reserves/production ratio is estimated to last for 43 years with the current production.

In 2005, Samotlorneftegaz JSC received a certificate of compliance with labor protection (CCLP), and in 2011 it was certified for compliance with the requirements of international standards OHSAS 18001:2007, ISO 14001:2004, ISO 9001:2008.
