Slavneft holds licenses for exploration and oil and gas production at 33 license areas located in West Siberia and East Siberia.
Development of the Kuyumbinskoye field, which is unique in part of the reserves volume and located in the Krasnoyarsk region, is one of the important strategic objectives for Slavneft’s development. In 2010, the field was brought into pilot production that is now performed by OOO Slavneft-Krasnoyarskneftegaz (Company’s Subsidiary).
The Company’s key oil production enterprise is OAO Slavneft-Megionneftegaz (OAO SN-MNG).

The annual output of all the Holding’s enterprises is approximately 15 mln tons of crude oil.
The oil produced (excluding export crude) is delivered to OAO Slavneft-YaNOS and OAO Mozyr Refinery where it is processed. The Company’s refining enterprises possess significant production capacities and state-of-the-art equipment that allow manufacturing high-quality products compliant with the international standards.
The business strategy implemented by Slavneft is focused on ensuring sustainable development of the oil production and refining capacities.
