St.Petersburg, November 29 - Neftegaz.RU. The 2 companies have agreed to start joint activities in localising Schlumberger’s technological solutions on the Russian market and to develop software for well-design and drilling.

They will also develop advanced data-analytics tools for geological prospecting and hydrodynamic simulations.
Another key area for cooperation will be enhanced oil recovery (EOR) technologies for use under complex geological conditions.

Other companies to be recruited in implementing this project include Nedra (an oil-production solutions developer and integrator, and part of Gazprom Neft’s contractors’ ecosystem), the Moscow Research Centre (a Moscow-government R&D agency) and Schlumberger’s Tyumen Competency Centre.

Vadim Yakovlev, Gazprom Neft´s Deputy Chairman of the Management Board, said:
  • Together with our partners from Schlumberger we are going to start developing new innovative solutions and facilitate the best technologies being localised in Russia
  • This will open up major business development opportunities for both companies
  • These new solutions will be integrated into Gazprom Neft’s technological ‘ecosystem’ and will, going forward, be made available for all companies in the industry - on the domestic and international markets - to order
This partnership will secure the competitiveness of Gazprom Neft’s and Schlumberger’s joint developments in the light of Russian industry’s current dependence on import substitution in software and in security for cloud-based technologies.

Gokhan Saygi, President, Schlumberger Russia and Central Asia, noted:
  • Our focus on localising full-cycle digital product development is a key element of Schlumberger’s business in Russia - as is partnering with Gazprom Neft in working together on digital transformation
  • Signing this Memorandum of Cooperation is a logical - and important - landmark in developing an integrated and secure digital ecosystem, addressing those tasks facing Gazprom Neft as well as the wider industry in Russia, as a whole
Gazprom Neft will have the opportunity to commercialise its joint developments with Schlumberger throughout Russia, while also offering its digital solutions to international partners through Schlumberger’s own ecosystem.

All new technologies will be developed on the basis of International Open Subsurface Data Universe (OSDU) standards - an international data platform building on decades of major international oil & gas companies’ experience.
