It became possible thanks to Bashneftegeofizika JSC efforts.
Rustem Adiev received a letter signed by Vice President of PJSC LUKOIL, General Director of LUKOIL-Western Siberia LLC Sergey A.Kochkurov.
The letter says: "Dear Rustem Yavdatovich! The exploration of underinvestigated hydrocarbon extraction of the Taimyr Peninsula is a promising vector for the economic and production potential development of the Krasnoyarsk Territory.
April 4, 2017 in the East Taimyr licensed area " LUKOIL - Western Siberia " LLC started exploration drilling of prospecting and appraisal well № 1P.

Let me thank you on behalf of many thousands oil workers of LUKOIL-Western Siberia LLC and on my own behalf for the significant contribution to the beginning of prospecting drilling on the Taimyr Peninsula."
It is necessary to say that in February 2016 a two-year contract was signed between Bashneftegeofizika JSC and LUKOIL-Western Siberia LLC for seismic exploration of MOGT-2D in the East Taimyr licensed area.
The subsidiary of "Bashneftegeofizika" JSC "Taimyrgeofizika" JSC before a year and a half conducted a large-scale seismic survey in the volume of 1200 line kilometers. That let "LUKOIL" PJSC for half a year ahead of schedule start drilling of a prospecting and appraisal planned well in 5,500 meters deep in the East Taimyrsky licensed area in the Krasnoyarsk Territory. LUKOIL is the first company to drill such a deep well in the Lower Cambrian deposits in this region. All work of the construction of well No. 1P in the East Taimyr licensed area will be carried out using advanced technologies and taking into account international environmental standards.
