Tyumenneftegaz building oil pipeline from Russia's Uvat area

By OGJ editors

HOUSTON, Nov. 29 -- TNK-BP subsidiary OAO Tyumenneftegaz (TNG) has begun construction of a 76.5 km crude oil pipeline to connect Kalchinskoye field in the Uvat region of Russia's Tyumen Oblast with the Demyanskaya system, according to Interfax news agency.

The 720 mm pipeline will have a throughput capacity of 10-12 million tonnes/year (mty) of oil. The 1 billion ruble pipeline—up from 300 million rubles originally—is part of TNK-BP's development of Uvat group fields.

General contractor ZAO Strymontazh (Yugorsk) began pipeline construction this month, with spreads working near Turtas township, Demyanskoye village, and Demyanka station. The oil pipeline designer is OAO Giprotyumenneftegaz (Tyumen).

Work is scheduled for completion in July 2005.

Uvat development—to be completed over 20 years—will open a producing region expected to yield more than 10 million tpy of oil.

TNG holds licenses for 10 areas in Tyumen Oblast, including southern areas and those located in the Khanty-Mansiysk and Yamalo-Nenetsk Autonomous Districts.

Global LNG: Adjusting to New Realities

Fri, Mar 20, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s March 20, 2015, webcast will look at how global LNG trade will be affected over the next 12-24 months by falling crude oil prices and changing patterns and pressures of demand. Will US LNG production play a role in balancing markets? Or will it add to a growing global oversupply of LNG for markets remote from easier natural gas supply? Will new buyers with marginal credit, smaller requirements, or great need for flexibility begin to look attractive to suppliers? How will high-cost, mega-projects in Australia respond to new construction cost trends?

US Midstream at a Crossroads

Fri, Mar 6, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s Mar. 6, 2015, webcast will focus on US midstream companies at an inflection point in their development in response to more than 6 years shale oil and gas production growth. Major infrastructure—gas plants, gathering systems, and takeaway pipelines—have been built. Major fractionation hubs have expanded. Given the radically changed pricing environment since mid-2014, where do processors go from here? What is the fate of large projects caught in mid-development? How to producers and processors cooperate to ensure a sustainable and profitable future? This event will serve to set the discussion table for the annual GPA Convention in San Antonio, Apr. 13-16, 2015.

This event is sponsored by Leidos Engineering.

The Future of US Refining

Fri, Feb 6, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s Feb. 6, 2015, webcast will focus on the future of US refining as various forces this year conspire to pull the industry in different directions. Lower oil prices generally reduce feedstock costs, but they have also lowered refiners’ returns, as 2015 begins with refined products priced at lows not seen in years. If lower per-barrel crude prices dampen production of lighter crudes among shale plays, what will happen to refiners’ plans to export more barrels of lighter crudes? And as always, refiners will be affected by government regulations, particularly those that suppress demand, increase costs, or limit access to markets or supply.
