Prospects and realities of development of Russian sea shelf

Now, when oil fields on land are gradually depleted, more attention is focused on offshore projects. Offshore seas of Russia are concentrated about 45% of all oil and gas resources of the shelf of the World ocean. But given the prospects of the offshore oil, especially in the Arctic zone, the process is extremely complex, requiring unique and expensive technology and equipment. Because in the conditions of sanctions, access to foreign samples is limited, you need to manage their forces. Authorities put high hopes on import substitution, but what we have in reality?

Currently, the state considers Arctic and marine projects as a stimulus for the development of the Russian economy. According to forecasts of the Ministry of energy, is expected to increase offshore oil production to 26 million tonnes (17% compared with the figures of 2016). By 2035, in Russia, on the shelf of the expected extraction of about 80 million tons.

These data were presented at the meeting 12-15 September 2017 in St. Petersburg at the XIII international conference on development of oil and gas resources of Russian Arctic and continental shelf of CIS countries (RAO/CIS Offshore). It is the largest industry event regularly every two years brings together representatives of state authorities, domestic and foreign oil and gas companies, leading scientists and experts to discuss critical aspects of the development of offshore hydrocarbon reserves.

Its origins offshore forum takes in 1993, when sharply increased interest in the development of oil and gas resources of the Arctic and started work on the Prirazlomnoye and Sakhalin projects. The main goal of RAO/CIS Offshore today – the building of a productive dialogue between the government, the leaders of the oil and gas industry and leading experts on issues of development of hydrocarbon resources on the Russian continental shelf.In the past in 2017, the forum was attended by more than 300 companies, including “Gazprom”, “Rosneft”, LUKOIL, “Gazprom Neft”, “Sevmash”, “Gazflot”, Krylov state research centre, Shipbuilding complex “Zvezda”, Aker Solutions, DNV GL, General Electric Oil&Gas, KBR, Kvaerner, Siemens, TechnipFMC.

In order for offshore projects developed, the government will support the company benefits. This information was announced during the forum, Deputy energy Minister Kirill Molodtsov. According to him, the authorities will create special conditions for companies implementing marginally profitable projects, even if their cost of development is $70-80 per barrel. Dedication of the state megaprojects in the far North, appears to be associated primarily with security issues, “demonstration of the flag” – military and economic presence of Russia in the Arctic.By the way, already now the projects in the Caspian sea and in the Pechora sea are implemented with significant benefits.

Of particular interest to the companies, and the state is the Arctic zone. Now Russia is entering a principally new stage of development of the Arctic and continental shelf, as emphasized by academician Alexey Kontorovich. So, there are important geological base that will certainly have to improve, but already now the development of the shelf has ceased to be a “fantastic” project, as many thought even a decade and a half ago.

“Rosneft” and the Arctic plans

A pioneer in the development of the Russian shelf is PJSC “NC “Rosneft”. Today the company is the largest subsoil user on the Russian shelf: 01 January 2017года PJSC “NC “Rosneft” owned 55 licenses in the offshore areas of the Arctic, far Eastern and southern seas of Russia. Resources of hydrocarbons at these sites is estimated at 41.5 billion tons of oil equivalent. The company also sells offshore project in the Black sea off the coast of the Republic of Abkhazia, engaged in the exploration and production of hydrocarbons offshore Vietnam, participates in projects on the Norwegian shelf, Mozambique and Venezuela.

The main regions of location of licensed sites of JSC “NK “Rosneft”:

  • Western Arctic — the Barents, Pechora and Kara seas (19 projects)
  • Eastern Arctic — sea Laptev, East-Siberian and Chukchi seas (9 projects)
  • Far East — sea of Okhotsk and the sea of Japan (20 projects)
  • Southern seas of Russia — the Black, Azov and Caspian (8 projects)
  • Offshore projects in the interest of all major players in the Russian oil and gas market. So, one of the leaders in this field is “Rosneft”.

Thanks conducted in recent years Rosneft exploration on the Russian continental shelf, the balance of a set of 30 million tons of oil and 400 billion m3 of gas.

For the company, this region is of particular importance. According to previously announced plans, in the next five years the company intends to invest in the development of the Russian continental shelf of about $8.4 billion, Despite sanctions, in 2017-2019 years, Rosneft plans to conduct exploration drilling in the Black and Barents seas, to continue in the spring of 2017 drilling in the Laptev sea. So, according to the Vice-President of the company Andrey Shishkin, imposed on Russia sanctions stimulate Russian companies to implement their own projects and create their own technical means for the shelf.

Now “Rosneft” on the basis of the far Eastern center of shipbuilding and ship repair generates a unique shipbuilding cluster, the core of which will be the “Star”. According to estimates, investment in the construction of a modern shipbuilding complex will be at 145.5 billion rubles In the implementation of Maritime projects, the company has assessed its needs in the courts of the supply and support of drilling operations, identified the main types of vessels and marine structures. Rosneft as the largest customer of the equipment shelf and is interested in the localization of new technologies and modern production facilities.

Gazprom on the Arctic shelf

Another giant oil and gas market, “Gazprom” has 38 licenses on the shelf of the Barents, Kara and Okhotsk seas. The first project implemented by “Gazprom” as an operator, the Kirinskoye field offshore Sakhalin. At the moment it is the only gas-condensate field, Russia, the operation of which is carried out using a subsea production equipment. Gas to Primorsky Krai and North Sakhalin. Before entering the large industrial gas consumers in the far Eastern Federal district exploration at the Kirinsky is conducted intermittently.For the first quarter of 2017, the field is extracted 368 million m3 of gas and 62 thousand tons of condensate.

At the beginning of 2017 stocks “Gazprom” on the Russian shelf is estimated for 23 fields, making the gas category АВ1С1 7.7 trillion m3, В2С2 – 2.3 trillion m3, condensate АВ1С1 – 199,1 million tons, В2С2 – 34.7 million tons, reserves of oil (mainly Prirazlomnoye and Dolginskoye field) АВ1С1 – 61 million tons, В2С2 – of 251.8 million tons. Just on the shelf since 1995 “Gazprom” has opened ten new fields, including unique reserves are in North Kamennomysskoye, Kamennomysskoye-the sea and the Yuzhno-Kirinskoye.One of the latest discoveries – South Lunskoye, discovered in 2016 drilling of exploratory well Yuzhno-will-1. Initial geological reserves of gas asset – 51.4 billion m3.

According to the Deputy Chairman of the Board of “Gazprom” Golubev, major discoveries on the shelf of Russia ahead. For exploration, the company plans by 2030 to order about 20 ships. Now it spetsflot consists of 12 units and four drilling rigs, the construction of two vessels for work offshore. The company has several strong support points of the Arctic projects: the main shore base support offshore drilling in Murmansk, auxiliary – in point Yamburg and the village of Varandey.

Until 2032, the company has the priority of the establishment and maintenance of production in three main mining centres: Arctic Prirazlomnoye, and the Ob-Taz – kamennomysskoe-sea and North Kamennomysskoye and Sakhalin – Kirinskoye and Yuzhno-Kirinskoye fields.

The primary asset that you plan to build and put into operation, is the largest gas field – kamennomysskoe-sea (commercial development is planned for 2025). Initially, the field will be developed with the help of ice-resistant platforms in the production volume of 15 billion m3 of gas per year. Then it is planned to start developing the North-kamennomysskoe – the second largest hydrocarbon reserves in the region.

The Caspian and the Baltic development LUKOIL

LUKOIL is engaged in the development of the North Caspian region. In the framework of this project involves the construction of about 30 platforms. In the nearest plans of the company – launching new project queues fields to them. Yu. Korchagin and V. Filanovsky (2017-2019), introduction to industrial exploitation Shelly after 2020. Kuvykina – after 2025, 170 km after 2030.

LUKOIL also plans to develop the open in 2001, Shelly field with initial recoverable reserves of 38 million tons of oil and 40 billion m3 of gas. Shelly is next to the field. V. Filanovsky actively developed in the fall of 2016. Investment in the project exceeded RUB 156 billion Filanovsky, the focal point of Caspian oil and gas region. With the commissioning of the second phase of resettlement (in 2017 completed the construction of infrastructure) production will reach its design level of 6 million tons.

Continued to be developed, put into operation in 2010, the field. Y. Korchagin. Cumulative production has already amounted to 7.4 mln tons of oil (the maximum level is 1.5 million tons per year), while investments exceeded RUB 100 billion In 2018 expected launch of the second phase, including the construction of a flow conductor and drilling of seven development wells to maintain production levels.

Another direction of development of marine areas for LUKOIL to Baltic sea. Recent discoveries have led to a significant increase of the company’s reserves in this region (30 million tons). It was discovered four deposits: D-6 Yuzhnaya, and D-29, D-33 and D-41. In addition to being developed in 2004 from the Kravtsovskoye field, the most interesting – D-33. LUKOIL completes exploration asset, specifying the geological structure: vertically integrated oil companies owned the land was part of a large oil-bearing structure.The company is preparing for production drilling on the field D-41 (2019 scheduled completion of construction of development) and is considering plans for the development of neighbouring assets.

And what have we?

Currently, the most problematic in the oil and gas sector are a key technology for the exploration and development of offshore fields, as well as horizontal drilling techniques and the impact on low-permeability reservoirs. The difficulty lies in the fact that while we have practically no own capacity for the construction of Jack-up and semi-submersible drilling and production platforms, subsea production systems, equipment for seismic exploration 3D, but because of the sanctions, foreign decisions have become inaccessible.

According to the State program on import substitution, containing short, medium and long term, by 2020, the plan is to develop domestic technology to work offshore and to overcome the dependence on imports. According to the Minister of industry and trade Denis Manturov, at the moment, already developed 20 sectoral plans, including the 2000 most emphasis on import substitution, the total declared value of the projects exceeds 2.5 trillion rubles.

Now the share of “foreign” drilling equipment, rotary steerable systems, and navigation equipment determining the position of the drilling tool is equal to 83 %. However, in the field of rock cutting and drilling tools figure is not so critical – 60 %. But on integrated service drilling again leading foreign manufacturers. Now in the field of applied and engineering software borrowing is 90 %, and in the field of automatic production control systems and does 91 %.

Hard things and the technologies and equipment required in the production of tight oil. This applies to exploration, and Geophysics, and the drilling of wells, and, of course, to offshore projects. Floating drilling rigs and vessels, subsea production system, suspension wellhead equipment, specialized vessels – all that is required to operate in Arctic conditions, mostly of foreign production.

However, the authorities do not leave hope to our independence. So, the Union of oil and gas equipment manufacturers has introduced to the state Duma a report on the number of domestic companies able to replace the foreign supplier in the market of equipment for work in the Arctic.Among these enterprises – GOZ “Obukhov plant”, the Group “Generation”, the Group “GMS” Group “Uralmash-Izhora” and ZAO “NPF CKBA, JSC NIITFA”, JSC “NIKIMT-Atomstroy”, JSC “Novaya era”, JSC “Proletarsky Zavod”, JSC “Mashprom”, OJSC “Power machines”, JSC “tekhnoros”, JSC “Uralvagonzavod”, LLC “Uralmash NGO holding”, LLC “Electrotyazhmash-Privod”, FGUP SPO “Analitpribor”, NPO “Vint”, JSC “Barricades”, JSC “Kataysk pumping plant”.

Thus, according to the survey results domestic companies demonstrated not only their competitiveness, but also the superiority of foreign solutions in many segments. Yes, foreigners have surpassed the Russian colleagues in the segment of “Drilling equipment and tools” and “Wellhead equipment”, but the main advantage of Russia in the development of offshore oil is the fact that we have our own nuclear icebreaker fleet, which is the main tool for the development of severe zone. In addition, previously, our enterprise has already proven its General and competitive.So, Jack-up drilling rig “Arctic” and “Prirazlomnaya” was built in Severodvinsk, drilling platforms LUKOIL was created for the Caspian sea at Astrakhan plant, and for the Baltic in Kaliningrad, in our own factory. Here was also built offshore ice-resistant oil terminal of Varandey in the Pechora sea.

Also now being actively promoted samples stop valves produced in Russia, designed for transporting hydrocarbons, the equipment developed for drilling directional wells. Maybe the design of the equipment and does not move by leaps and bounds, but is by far. The installation state is that in 2019 it is necessary to start the production of “black gold” on the basis of the created sample Russian rotary steerable systems, and by 2022 and all proceed to the processing of hydrocarbon raw materials quality additives.Well, you only have to wait and see.
