Exploration & Production

As for oil production, OAO NGK Slavneft ranks 8th in RF. The Company’s share in the total volume of oil extracted in the country makes 2.9%. OAO Slavneft-Megionneftegaz is the Holding’s key oil and gas production enterprise. OOO Megion Geologia (Western Siberia) and OOO Baikitskaya Oil & Gas Exploratory Expedition (Krasnoyarsk region), the Holding’s enterprises, perform exploration and appraisal of Slavneft’s oil fields.
 
Slavneft and its Subsidiaries hold licenses for oil and gas prospecting, exploration and production from 31 subsoil areas. 35 oil and gas fields are located at 30 of these subsoil areas, including:

the Aganskoye, Vatinskoye, Megionskoye, Mykhpaiskoye, Severo-Pokurskoye, Yuzhno-Aganskoye, Ketovskoye, Pokamasovskoye, Yuzhno-Pokamasovskoye, Zapadno-Pokamasovskoye, Severo-Ostrovnoye, Novo-Pokurskoye, Lugovoye, Lokosovskoye, Yuzhno-Ostrovnoye, Tailakovskoye, Travyanoye, Achimovskoye, Chistinnoye, Zapadno-Chistinnoye, Severo-Orekhovskoye, Arigolskoye, Maksimkinskoye, Kysomskoye, Ininskoye, Vakhskoye, Vostochno-Okhteurskoye, Malochernogorskoye, Uzunskoye, Zapadno-Ust-Balykskoye, Zapadno-Asomkinskoye, Ostrovnoye and Fainskoye fields in the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Area – Yugra;

the Kuyumbinskoye field situated in 4 license areas (Kuyumbinsky, Kordinsky, Abrakupchinsky LAs and a part of Tersko-Kamovsky LA) and the northern part of the Yurubcheno-Tokhomskoye field (in the Tersko-Kamovsky license area) in the Krasnoyarsk region.

Currently there are no discovered fields with prospective and inferred oil and gas resources at the Podporozhny license area in the Krasnoyarsk region.
 
As of December 31, 2015, Slavneft’s oil equivalent reserves, which were estimated under the 2P (total proved + probable) category in accordance with the PRMS (Petroleum Resources Management System) standards, made 5.12 mln bbl that practically corresponds to the 2014 volume. Associated petroleum gas reserves under the 2P criteria increased by 7.8% during the year and amounted to 706 billion cubic feet. 

According to the independent audit results, Slavneft’s oil equivalent reserves under the 3P (total proved + probable + possible) PRMS classification also remained at the level of the previous year and made 7.83 bln bbl. The 3P gas reserves increased by 5.9% and amounted to 925 billion cubic feet in the reporting period.

The Company’s total proved oil reserves, which were estimated under the more conservative SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) LOF (life of field) methodology, made 1.77 bln bbl as of the year end. The gas reserves under the SEC LOF criteria are evaluated as 352.6 bln cubic feet.

In 2015, the Company discovered 13 new hydrocarbon deposits at four license areas, i.e. at the Tailakovsky, Agansky, Pokamasovsky and Zapdno-Ust-Balyksky license areas, located in the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Area – Yugra. 

In 2015, independent audit of Slavneft’s hydrocarbon reserves was carried out at 35 fields, 33 of which are situated in KhMAO–Yugra and 2 of which are in the Krasnoyarsk region.

Results of Slavneft’s oil and gas reserves audit for 2009 – 2015 are presented on the basis of the estimation made by DeGolyer and MacNaughton (an independent company). In 1997 – 2009, Miller&Lents, Ltd., an American consulting company, was Slavneft’s continuing auditor. In 2010, the shareholders recommended that Slavneft should appoint DeGolyer and MacNaughton to carry out the hydrocarbon reserves audit for unification of the corporate reporting.
