Yan Sharipov: We continue to master the methods and practices of Schlumberger


Yan Sharipov TAGRAS TNG-GroupWe bring to your attention an interview with the General Director of the Geophysical Division of the TAGRAS Holding Yana Sharipova – on the results of 2022, the development of our own software, preparations for work on the shelf and the social policy of the division.

Last year, we maintained our leading positions in the geophysical market and increased the volume of work by 6 billion rubles. We are successfully developing new territories. In 2022, exploration geophysics enterprises carried out seismic surveys at 30 sites in Tatarstan and Kalmykia, in the Samara, Orenburg, Saratov, Tyumen and Irkutsk regions, as well as in the Arkhangelsk region of the Nenets Autonomous Okrug.

We have digitized almost 20% of the division's business processes. This year we plan to complete 9 projects related to production accounting and planning in exploration geophysics, management of industrial safety, labor protection and the environment, support of the company's existing IT projects and determining the development of a digital geological direction. In the next three years, we plan to achieve 75% automation of the division's business processes.

Last year, we were able to acquire state-of-the-art seismic data processing software with very high performance, resulting in orders that were previously unavailable to us.

We continue to master the techniques and practices « "Schlumberger". This has become one of the trends of our work in 2022. Specialists of the expedition for the introduction of new technologies performed work in the amount of more than 467 million rubles. In Kamchatka, for the first time, our specialists performed a standard and extended range of well logging operations, as well as reservoir testing during the construction of a prospecting and appraisal well.

conducted work to search for gas deposits using high-tech logging while drilling (LWD). This project – part of the gasification program for the Kamchatka Peninsula. In addition, we have become the first and so far the only company in the country that has successfully used the symbiosis of a foreign-made rotary-controlled system with a domestic LWD complex in research.

In the near future – development of equipment for vertical seismic profiling. Oil companies in Western Siberia, the Volga region, Kazakhstan, and Uzbekistan are looking forward to it.

We will continue to participate in the construction of the first superdeep exploration well in the Krasnodar Territory. We are going to have unique studies of a well in difficult thermobaric conditions — at temperatures up to 250 °C and pressures up to 140 MPa.
