Gazprom Neft Shelf LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Gazprom OJSC, was set up to develop offshore oil and gas fields.
Gazprom Neft Shelf LLC holds a license for development of the Prirazlomnoye oil field, discovered in 1989 on the shelf of the Pechora Sea. Its recoverable reserves total more than 70 mln. t. The planned oil production level is about 6 mln. t.
The Prirazlomnaya Platform will perform all technological operations on the field. It was built at PO Sevmash JSC. In August 2011, the Platform was towed to Murmansk from its construction yard, and installed on the Prirazlomnoye oil field.
The Prirazlomnoye Project is being implemented in cooperation with Russian leading defence enterprises as well as oil and gas companies.

Gennady Lubin, CEO of “Gazprom Neft Shelf”, has made a presentation of the "Prirazlomnoe" project - the first project of field development on the Arctic shelf.
