    Gazprom Neft and Schlumberger signed a memorandum of cooperation in the development of digital services to improve oil production efficiency. The document was signed by Andrey Belevtsev, Director of Digital Transformation at Gazprom Neft, and Rustam Biktimirov, Vice President for Digital Technologies and Integration at Schlumberger in Russia and Central Asia.

    The companies agreed to start joint activities to localize Schlumberger’s technological solutions in the Russian market, as well as to develop software applications for the design and drilling of wells. The partners will develop advanced exploration data analytics and simulation systems. Another priority area of ​​cooperation will be technologies for increasing oil recovery in difficult geological conditions. To implement the project, the partners will involve Nedra (a developer and integrator of digital solutions for oil production – an enterprise of the Gazprom Neft ecosystem), as well as the Moscow Research Center and the Schlumberger Tyumen Competence Center.
