    Digital Technologies Increase the Efficiency of Gazprom Neft’s Production in the Orenburg Region

    Gazpromneft-Orenburg has launched a digital twin of the Eastern section of the Orenburgskoye field, combining reservoir models and production infrastructure of the field. The economic effect of the project will amount to 3.3 billion rubles. until 2030.

    The integrated digital twin includes reservoir, well stock and surface infrastructure models. The innovative system increases the efficiency and safety of production and promptly predicts the parameters of equipment operation, predicting possible deviations and suggesting optimal modes of its loading.

    The digital twin is the main element of the Production Control Center (MCC) of Gazpromneft-Orenburg. Today, the system accompanies the operation of over 600 wells around the clock in the Eastern section of the Orenburgskoye field. In the future, along with production, the MCC will also control the collection and treatment of oil. This will make it possible to achieve maximum efficiency along the entire production chain in the development of the Eastern section of the Orenburg field, the largest oil-producing asset in the region. The additional cumulative production of the enterprise will exceed 800 thousand tons of oil and 1.3 billion cubic meters of gas. In the future, digital twins will be created for all Gazprom Neft fields in the Orenburg Region.

    “We continue to create digital twins of the largest Gazprom Neft fields in Western Siberia and the Volga-Ural region. Integrated models of the reservoir and infrastructure facilities allow you to quickly and accurately control the processes of oil production and treatment, eliminate non-production costs and deviations in the operation of equipment. All this ensures not only maximum efficiency in the development of fields, additional financial and production effect, but also increases the safety and environmental friendliness of our activities. “

    “The digital twin of the Eastern section of the Orenburgskoye field combines data on the structure of deposits, the operation of hundreds of wells and ground infrastructure facilities. The launch of an innovative model will help us to fully unleash the potential of the field, as well as ensure a high level of industrial and environmental safety in the development of one of the largest and most complex oil and gas assets in the Orenburg region ”.

    Digital Twin – A digital copy of a physical object or process that helps optimize management and business efficiency. The concept of a digital twin is designed to help enterprises quickly identify and eliminate deviations in production processes, predict their results and achieve maximum quality in their activities.

    The Production Control Center receives data on the parameters of oil and gas production and auxiliary equipment, pipelines and other field facilities. After analyzing them, the system selects the optimal equipment loading modes, taking into account the specified scenarios and dozens of other factors.
