Rosneft subsidiary Yuganskneftegaz officially opened two new oil and gas production units at the Priobskoye field, oil and gas production unit–22 and oil and gas production unit–23. The creation of new production units in Yuganskneftegaz is caused by intensive commissioning of producing wells after drilling, construction of multiple well platforms and infrastructure facilities.

It is planned to complete 535 new wells at the Priobskoye Field during 2014, which will increase oil output by over 100 thousand tons.

Production gain is provided not only by increased number of producing wells. The enterprise also applies new technologies of mechanized extraction. In 2013–2014 there were drilled 22 horizontal wells with average oil flow rate of more than 100 tons per day for more effective development of reserves.

As part of exploration work program carried out by Rosneft, the construction of exploration wells at the Priobskoye field is under way.

There have been created over 100 new jobs in oil and gas production unit–22, and 109 jobs in oil and gas production unit–23. Most of these jobs were occupied by young professionals. There are 73 multiple well platforms and 1571 wells in service of new units. The construction of three administration and living quarters is carried out in order to provide operational comfort and leisure time for staff.
