The achieved evaluation of Vankor Project is USD 3.4 per barrel of hydrocarbon reserves (in terms of 2P category using PRMS method) and reflects high potential of the project’s resource base.


Rosneft subsidiary Vankorneft was established in 2004 to develop Vankor oil and gas condensate field - the largest of the fields, discovered and commissioned in Russia during the last twenty five years. The field is located in the North of Eastern Siberia in Turukhansk District of the Krasnoyarsk Territory 142 km away from Igarka town.

As of 01.01.2016 Vankor field 2P reserves by PRMS classification are 265 mln tons of oil and condensate and 88 bcm of gas.

22 mln tons of oil and 8.71 bcm of gas were produced at Vankor in 2015. Vankor recovery factor is one of the highest in Russia due to the applied technological solutions. High flow rate of the field is secured by the drilling of injection directional and producing wells with horizontal completion. Oil production process is fully automated.

In April 2016 an operator company RN-Vankor was created which controls the regional infrastructure of Vankor cluster (including Vankor-Purpe oil pipeline) and enhances the efficiency and transparency of management of the project.
