Gazprom Neft Novy Port LLC renamed Gazpromneft-Yamal

Gazprom Neft Novy Port LLC, a Gazprom Neft subsidiary and operator of the project on Novoportovskoye field development, has been renamed into Gazpromneft-Yamal LLC, press center of Gazprom Neft says.

The amendments introduced into the Unified State Register of Legal Entities are in force from December 25, 2015. 

Gazpromneft-Yamal LLC is a subsidiary of Gazprom Neft PJSC, registered in Salekhard.

Novoportovskoye is one of the largest fields of exploitable oil and gas condensates in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District. Recoverable C1 and C2 reserves are more than 250 million tonnes of oil and condensate, with over 320 billion cubic metres of gas (including the Palaeozoic strata). It is located in the south-east of a peninsular in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District, 250km north of the town of Nadym and 30km from the Gulf of Ob shore line. Having completed pilot production drilling, Gazprom Neft Novy Port began full commercial drilling in 2014.

Oil will be shipped through a transfer complex at Cape Kamenny. Gazprom Neft confirmed the viability of this plan in 2011 after a test voyage by a nuclear-powered icebreaker from the Sabetta port (north east of the Yamal peninsula) to Cape Kamenny some 400km to the south.
