Rosneft cites oil discovery in eastern Arctic

Rosneft PJSC is citing a new oil field in the eastern Arctic after three core samples in an exploratory well in the Laptev Sea “showed high oil saturation.”

The samples were taken from 2,305 m to 2,363 m in the Tsentraino-Olginskaya-1 well. Drilling began in early April (OGJ Online, Apr. 5, 2017).

Drilling and core sampling are continuing. The well is being drilled from the shore of the Khara-Tumus Peninsula on the shelf of Khatanga Bay.

Rosneft was awarded the Khatanga license in November 2015.
