Gazprom Neft is preparing for the construction of another two ice-protected oil platforms designed for the icy waters of the Pechora Sea, placed only few kilometers from the now well-known rig “Prirazlomnaya”, reports Barents Observer.

These oil production installations are intended for the Dolginskoye field in the Pechora Sea, which is located in 40 meter depths about 100 km north of the Nenets AO coast, with resources estimated to be up to 235 million tons, reports the Barents Observer, citing Aleksandr Korobkov, head of GazpromNeft-Sakhalin.

Thus far Gazprom Neft has had major technical problems with the Prirazlomnaya platform and the installation has not yet started production, more than two years since it was towed to the Pechora Sea.
