Gazprom Neft's Science and Technology Center experiments with all the new technical solutions in field infrastructure and tests new equipment, alternative materials and technologies used during construction of infrastructure facilities.
STC specialists participate in evaluation and assessment of new major projects, provide support during startup of all new infrastructure facilities, and conduct assessment and analysis of operational risks.
STC is involved in all stages of field infrastructure development, from engineering to supporting operation of constructed facilities. Effective operation of infrastructure and equipment at oil fields allows extending the life of oil wells, which means it also affects production parameters.
Gazprom Neft's Science and Technology Center and Gazpromneft-Razvitie have jointly masterminded and continue developing the proprietary information system ERA:ISKRA – a tool for singling out optimal integrated solutions in field development and infrastructure construction. ERA:ISKRA is an integrated system for conceptual development of assets that serves as the conceptual design and engineering component of the future “smart field” concept. It belongs to the family of ERA electronic software products.
