ООО Megion Geologia

OOO Megion-Geologia is one of the leading exploration enterprises in the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Area-Yugra, which performs the full range of jobs for exploration, prospecting and development of oil and gas fields.

The Enterprise has been tracing its roots since 1957, when the Ust-Vakhskaya Oil Exploratory Expedition was established. The main task of that Expedition was to explore hydrocarbon deposits in Middle Priobie. Exploration drilling was carried out in the Megionskaya, Ermakovskaya and Nizhnevartovskaya areas. Due to the increased scope of exploration jobs, the Megion Oil & Gas Exploratory Expedition was created in 1962 on the basis of the Nizhnevartovsk Deep Drilling Crew. The Megion Expedition is a legendary enterprise that played an important role in establishment and development of the KhMAO-Yugra Oil & Gas Complex. As early as in summer of 1963, the Expedition with the drilling quantities of more than 30 thousand meters per year was among the best enterprises of the Tyumen region.

The Expedition team was awarded the Badge of Honour for discovering the Samotlor oil field - the largest one in the country – in 1965.

In 1978, Megionneftegazgeologia, an industrial association for oil and gas exploration, was established on the basis of the Megionskaya, Novo-Aganskaya and Vakhskaya Oil Exploratory Expeditions, Megion Well Testing Expedition, Megion Rig Assembling Office and Megion Expedition Equipping Office. In 1994, the Enterprise was one of the first in the geological industry, which was incorporated and became a part of the SLAVNEFT Group. In 2010, OOO Megion Geologia was established on the basis of OAO Slavneft-Megionneftegazgeologia. The Megion Oil Exploratory Expedition became the key business unit of Megion Geologia.  

For more than the semi centenary history, Megion geologists discovered more than 150 oil and gas fields, including the Megionskoye, Van-Eganskoye, Aganskoye, Varieganskoye, Pokachevskoye, Vatinskoye, Severo-Pokurskoye and Novo-Pokurskoye fields related to the category of major fields. Enterprise’s specialists discovered 600 hydrocarbon deposits at least, built and tested over 3,475 appraisal and exploration wells, drilled approximately 9.8 mln meters of the rock. The Enterprise team explored about a fourth of the total proved hydrocarbons in KhMAO-Yugra (8.6 bln tons).

Today Megion-Geologia performs exploration works not only in the license areas of the SLAVNEFT Group, but in fields of other subsurface users. The Enterprise has all resources required for exploration drilling of more than 50 thousand meters per year.

OOO Megion-Geologia continuously improves the operation methods and successfully applies the advanced well construction technologies. Due to upgrading of the facilities and optimization of the technological processes, the Enterprise managed to decrease essentially the OPEX and accelerate the drilling works over recent years.
