Both companies have confirmed their willingness to proceed with joint implementation of exploration and production projects in western Siberia, including the development of the Achimov, Paleozoic and Jurassic hydrocarbon deposits. The partners will also continue discussing their cooperation in developing the Ayashsky license block in the Sea of Okhotsk.
Gazprom Neft and Shell intend to combine their efforts in implementing decarbonisation projects. To this end, the companies are planning to look into the possibility of deploying carbon capture, utilisation & storage (CCUS) solutions at their JV assets. Both companies will discuss the possibility of using technology solutions for production of hydrogen via steam reforming of natural gas coupled with carbon capture.
The partners plan to extend technological cooperation in developing hard-to-recover reserves. A further key area for activity will be finding solutions for carbon footprint reduction and further improving projects’ environmental sustainability.
