23 June 2008 (08:04)

Rimera (ChTPZ Group’s O&G maintenance division) bought 100% of Taimyrnefterazvedka, Taimyr Autonomous Region’s largest drilling enterprise.

Taimyrnefterazvedka can currently boast a 70% share of Taimyr’s exploration drilling market; the enterprise sets up well sites in complicated mining and geological conditions where the rock pressure can be either anomalously high or low. Since 1964, Taimyrnefterazvedka has been able to launch oil and gas wells in fifty areas around Yenisei-Khatangskaya, Anabaro-Khatangskaya, Severo-Tungusskaya, and Pur-Tazovskaya oil-and-gas bearing provinces. All in all, the company operates within a radius of 600 kilometers of Dudinka, where their headquarters are based, and employs some 380 people. Rosneft and TNK-BP are among Taimyrnefterazvedka’s key customers.

Rimera’s General Director Vladimir Khristenko says acquiring drilling enterprises is bound to help Rimera make a unique market offer that will include exploration work, drilling, deposit development, and design and construction of pipelines and ground surface infrastructure.
