Rosneft strikes again in the Arctic

The Russian oil firm has added more reserves to its ambitious Vostok Oil project

Rosneft chalked up another oil discovery in the Russian Arctic in late July, adding volumes to a megaproject it hopes could produce up to 2.3mn bl/d of oil within a decade. It found over 20mn t (147mn bl) of crude after drilling at the border between Russia’s Yamalo-Nenets and Krasnoyarsk regions. The field, named Novoogennoye, also holds some 1bn m³ of gas. The state-controlled producer is searching the northernmost reaches of Russia’s prolific Western Siberian basin to further build the resource base underpinning the Vostok Oil project. It already comprises fields with some 5bn t (37bn bl) of crude, according to Rosneft, although it is unclear how much of this volume is recoverable. Big
