08 September, 2023

JSC Embamunaigas (hereinafter EMG or the Company) celebrated the 60th anniversary of the Prorva field. Company management, veteran oilmen and the personnel of the Prorva field took part in the festive event organised at the Caspiy Samaly shift camp.     

The Prorva group of fields of NGDU Zhylyoiymunaigas, comprising four fields - Sagidollah Nurzhanov, Western Prorva, Aktobe and Dosmukhambetova - began to be developed in 1963.  With the commissioning of the integrated associated gas treatment unit at the Prorva field, gas flaring was discontinued, demonstrating that environmental protection is one of EMG's top priorities.

In his congratulatory speech, Sabit Arynov, General Director of JSC Embamunaigas, emphasised the key role of the Prorva field on the Company's production map.

"Over the 60 years of development of the Prorva group of fields, over 44 million tonnes of oil have been produced, which is 85% of the total volume of black gold produced by NGDU Zhylyoiymunaigas. A successful project implemented at Prorva is the construction of a complex associated gas treatment unit with a capacity of 150 million cubic metres of gas per year. Of this, more than 100 million cubic metres of gas is used by the national company Qazaq Gaz for the needs of the population. One of the future projects is the development of 17 billion cubic metres of gas reserves discovered at the Western Prorva field," Arynov said.     

It should be noted that more than 750 million cubic metres of marketable gas have been extracted since the launch of the associated gas treatment unit.   

Veteran oilmen Maxim Izbasov, Zhumabek Zhamauov and Aibolat Gabdullin, who contributed to the development of the national oil industry, spoke about the uniqueness of the Prorva field, which has been producing oil by the gushing method for 60 years.

For their selfless and fruitful work, a group of oilmen working at the Prorva field were awarded certificates of merit and letters of thanks from the RK Ministry of Energy, JSC NC KazMunayGas, JSC Embamunaigas and its trade union organisation, as well as NGDU Zhylyoymunaigas.
