Usinskoye field is located in Komi Republic. The Permian reservoir of the field has high-viscosity oil and is developed using thermal recovery methods.
Roadmap for Developing the Permian reservoir was drafted and approved. Its implementation will enable an increase in high-viscosity oil production and improve the efficiency of the field development.
High profitability of oil production from the field's Permian deposit is explained by the existing beneficial taxation of high viscosity crudes.
Various oil recovery technologies are used at the field such as drilling of directional production wells and construction of horizontal wells, including for the application of the steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) technology.
Oil recovery factor is also positively affected by the dispersed injection of steam in the areas of steam treatment, the operations of cyclic steam injection in certain production wells including combined treatment with chemical injection.
