Joint advanced Sino-Russian project for oil recovery
Gazprom Neft and China National Petroleum Corp. will launch a new a new technical partnership based on feasibility study of surfactant flooding of Sutorminskoye oil field in Russia’s Yamal-Nenets. The companies will develop advanced techniques for increasing oil recovery. These are based on studies and experiments that Gazprom Neft claimed as being very successful, as they helped boost recovery to 69% in a depleted area of West Salymskoye field in the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Area. These claims are supported by analogue success by CNPC in the Daqing oil field in China.
