Kogalym, October 22 - Neftegaz.RU. Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yury Borisov payed a visit today to the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous District – Yugra.
Borisov was accompanied by Governor of Yugra Natalya Komarova and President of LUKOIL Vagit Alekperov.

Yugra is one of Russia's richest regions in terms of mineral resources.
It is in this region that LUKOIL was originally established.
The name of the company consists of the initial letters of the names of the 3 cities: Langepas, Urai and Kogalym.

​At one of LUKOIL's production facilities, LUKOIL EPU Service, the Deputy PM– who is responsible for civilian sectors of industry, including fuel and energy complex – witnessed production of AC electronic motors for electric centrifugal pumps.

This innovative high-efficiency model replaced standard sucker-rod pumping units, thus increasing oil production and decreasing energy consumption.
The motors produced by LUKOIL EPU Service are in use not only at LUKOIL fields, but also at those of other Russian fuel and energy companies.

The Integrated Operations Centre of the Yuzhno-Yagunskoye field presented new digital approaches to production process to the deputy prime minister.
LUKOIL creates such units as a part of its Intelligent Field project in order to achieve a quantum leap in oil and gas assets management, to increase production and cut costs, as well as to improve security and environmental safety of the facilities.

Yury Borisov said:
  • I am especially concerned with imports phase-out and with Russian enterprises' ability to manufacture their own equipment, including oil production one
  • Having visited a LUKOIL's oil field and its motor production facility, I can say that the company is quite successful in meeting the challenge of introducing its own energy efficient oil and gas production technologies
The city of Kogalym is well known not only for its resource and scientific potential, but also on preservation of existing and creation of new cultural, tourist and economic opportunities for smaller towns.
Therefore, Yury Borisov also visited a number of public amenities constructed in Kogalym with LUKOIL's support.
