Submit proposal for new technologies

Gazprom Neft’s Science and Technology Center seeks to promote an innovation circle around it with intent to culture new ideas and approaches to the Company’s technological development. We are willing to review all the promising proposals received from potential developers concerning the application and improvement of technological solutions in geological exploration, field development, oil production and other business areas of Gazprom Neft’s Science and Technology Center.


Gazprom Neft’s projects aimed at improving efficiency of oil and gas production, development of new reserves and fulfillment of the Company’s strategic plans were assembled into a single conceptual document known as the Technology Strategy.

A list of the Company’s focal areas is provided below. If you have any proposals concerning these focal areas, you can submit your application. A subject matter expert of Gazprom Neft’s Science and Technology Center will contact you as soon as we have reviewed your application.
