CJSC Northgas has announced the commissioning of the East Dome of North Urengoy field.
As of now, eighteen production wells have been drilled at the East Dome. The East Dome’s infrastructure also includes a gas treatment unit with a capacity of 6 billion cubic meters of gas per year, gas gathering networks, a gas pipeline and condensate pipeline that lead to the West Dome.
