Innovation and technology

Today new technologies allow oil and gas companies to develop hard-to-recover oil reserves and expands their exploration and production in new regions. While increasing operating efficiency, maintaining stability, and gaining access to resources in exchange for technological competencies.

Innovative technologies in the oil and gas industry are an essential tool for achieving strategic goals to improve technological results in the field of unconventional hydrocarbon production.

Implementation

During the first stage of implementing the innovation development program by the company, significant success has been achieved both in the development of production technologies and in areas of improving management efficiency:

  • Development of a drilling support center;
  • The transition of the company refinery and chemical plant to the production of higher grades and environmentally friendly fuel classes;
  • Transition to the refinery’s catalytic catalyst cracking;
  • Development and introduction of software providing advanced exploration and production efficiency;
  • Creation of units responsible for the management of technological development.

Technological challenges and priorities in oil refining

PJSC Sakhavostokneftegaz achieved its strategic goal to increase oil refining to 4.6 million tons per year. The strategic priorities at present are:

  • Increasing the depth of oil refining and the yield of light petroleum products;
  • Operational Efficiency: Improving Energy Efficiency and availability, loss reduction.

In-depth light exit exploration is achieved due to the implementation of modernization programs, implementing R&D programs in the field of oil refining, including projects development innovative decisions aimed at increasing the refining margin and improving product line.

Technology priorities Technological challenges
Increase production effectiveness Decline in oil quality for refining.
Production line improvement Higher market requirements for performance motor oils
Higher demands for road bitumen and polymer-bitumen binders, arctic diesel, unleaded aviation gasoline and needle coke.
Deep processing The need for cost-effective heavy oil refining balances.

Innovative project

Development of advanced technologies in the development of unconventional oil reserves for the next 10 years.

Brief project description

The project aims to create a set of domestic technologies and high-tech equipment, providing equipment for the exploration of more than 146 million tons of recoverable hydrocarbon reserves in the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug and the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Area;

Effects

The introduction of advanced technology will contribute to solving one of the most pressing problems facing the Russian oil and gas industry – expanding the resource base by involving non-traditional stocks. The problem becomes more relevant as the deposits of Western Siberia are depleted.

Development and launch of catalytic cracking catalysts and hydrogenation processes

Project Implementation Schedule

2016 – 2022

The project aims to create a modern complex for the production of catalytic cracking catalysts, hydrotreating and hydrocracking. The project will reduce the dependence of domestic refineries on imported catalysts.

The project involves the development of catalysts in conjunction with domestic scientific organizations, testing catalysts to confirm their effectiveness and the construction of catalyst production facilities.
