Shpilman Research and Analytical Center for Rational Subsoil Use was represented by Director Andrey Grigoryevich Kopytov.
In summing up, A.G. Kopytov said:

- In the territory of Yugra in 2023, the amount of investments in geological exploration by oil and gas companies may sum up to more than 60 billion rubles, which is comparable to investments in recent years. Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Region – Yugra is one of the main oil-producing regions of Russia, which accounted for more than 42% of all-Russian oil production in 2022.
- The resource base of Yugra is more than 22 billion tons of oil, of which 35% fall on the studied reserves of industrial categories (A, B1 and C1), and about 50% belong to the resources of categories D (D0, Dl, D1, D2). To increase the categorization of reserves and resources, keeping of annual geological exploration volumes is required"
- In 2022, exploration and appraisal drilling meterage amounted to more than 300 thousand meters, 2D seismic exploration - more than 1.2 thousand linear kilometers, 3D – more than 2 thousand square km.

According to the director of V.I.Spilman Research and Analytical Center, the figures indicate the interest of companies in these investments, which are necessary to obtain new geological information in order to improve the quality of the resource base. Andrey Kopytov also noted: "The dynamics of the last five years shows that oil and gas companies are trying to maintain investments in exploration at the same level without it reducing. We hope that the companies' plans for 2023 for geological exploration in the territory of Yugra will be implemented in full."

A wide range of issues concerning possibilities of realization of oil and gas potential of the region in the current conditions of international instability, what the state is doing already now to help realize this potential and what chances the Russian oil and gas industry has to maintain its global positions in the global energy system was discussed during the Central Panel Discussion “Opportunities of oil and gas potential realization in conditions of international instability”.

The participants noted the results of pilot works, obtained by Gazpromneft and LUKOIL on the research practice grounds “Bazhenov” at the round table 2 «Prospects of oil reserves development of the Bazhenov suite of the West-Siberian oil and gas province».

The Federal State Budgetary Institution “Russian Federal Geological Fund” developed and put into practice new Methodological recommendations for the calculation of Bazhenov suite reserves in 2022. It is necessary to continue scientific research to establish patterns of oil potential and develop technologies of oil production from the Bazhenov suite, including thermal gas treatment technology.

As part of the round table “Increasing resource base by studying deep horizons” the participants discussed issues and directions related to the prospects of studying the structure and industrial development of the pre-Jurassic oil and gas reservoirs. It is reasonable to prepare a state program to study the structure and oil and gas content of the difficult reservoirs of the pre-Jurassic and Bazhenov complexes to improve exploration efficiency.

Based on the results of the round table “Actual directions of organizational and economic mechanisms of subsoil use development in modern conditions” it is proposed that as follows:
1. The reserves inventory by subordinate organizations to Federal Agency for Subsoil Use (Rosnedra), which will allow to provide the State with objective information on the allocation of additional groups of reserves related to hard-to-recover reserves and the effectiveness of their incentives;
2. The creation of the regulations of the interaction between territorial bodies of subsoil use management and Federal State Budgetary Institution “Russian Federal Geological Fund” in terms of state cadastral field improving;
3. The alignment of the factors used in the approved methods for determining the one-time and start-up payment, as well as the procedure for determining the specific amounts of regular payments rates for subsoil use.
4. To ensure that determination coordinates and delineating the zones (the areas) is consistent to which prohibitions and (or) restrictions on subsoil use are imposed in accordance with Article 8 of the Russian Federation Law “On subsoil use” to determine rules for determining coordinates of excluded boundaries from the subsoil field depending on the type of mineral resource in accordance with the Land, Urban Planning, Forestry, Water Codes and subsoil use legislation.

The up-date ideas on mathematical modeling of oil recovery, modeling of wave processes, solving direct and inverse issues of oil field development using proxy-models, etc. were discussed during the round table “Mathematical methods in geology. Hydrocarbon systems modeling”.

Four reports were devoted to the Bazhenov formation, its mineral composition, main factors of the formation and the resource potential at the Section 1. The theme of the potential of the deposits remains relevant and generates a considerable discussion.

The most informative report was presented by the representative of Autonomous Institution “V.I. Shpilman Research and Analytical Centre for the Rational Use of the Subsoil” on the promising directions of prospecting and exploration works, based on the results of geological exploration of subsoil users and updating of the social and economic development strategy of the Autonomous Okrug. The increase of the resource base is of concern to the State, the Government of the Autonomous Okrug, and subsoil users. It is proposed to unite these efforts to choose the right direction.

It was recommended to restart thematic work with the involvement of institutions and subsoil users to revise outdated stratigraphic sectional planes on the new geological information and clarification of the deposit index marks in accordance with the regional structure.

The research of a young scientist from Yugra State University was recognized as a promising project at the Section 2, it aimed at creating an express method for assessing the resistance of oil components to solvents, which will allow subsoil users to promptly plan for an enhanced oil recovery.

The discussion of profile specialists from leading scientific centers of Moscow, Tomsk, Ufa, Tyumen and Khanty-Mansiysk showed the need for a single universal method for assessing the katagenesis of organic matter, which will increase the reliability of determining the scale of oil generation of the Bazhenov formation.
The proposals for implementation of new technologies to enhance oil recovery, increasing the efficiency of the reservoir pressure maintenance system for low-permeability reservoirs, porosity and permeability properties of bottom-hole zones. Reports were presented on the prospects of equipment import substitution in the oil and gas sector at the Section 3.
It resulted in the following conclusions:
- The implementation and application of new technologies to enhance oil recovery and to increase the efficiency of reservoir pressure maintenance in the future will allow achieving the project oil production in Yugra;
- The need is to develop and improve the unified methodological guidelines for conducting geological and technical activities in the oil and gas industry.

The report on the subject of “Structure and evaluation of oil and gas content prospects of Lower and Middle Jurassic on the areas of 2023 subsoil licensing program of the Serginskiy oil and gas district” aroused interest in the Poster Paper Section, which illustrates the geological information on the prospective areas in detail for subsoil users. Additionally, the paper “Methods of geological risk maps making for major regional works” was noted, which is aimed at selecting the least risky objects, which will increase the effectiveness of geological exploration and will serve to maintain the resource base of Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug - Yugra.

The Organizing Committee thanks everybody who took part in the Conference. The book of reports will be published at the official website of Autonomous Institution “V.I. Shpilman Research and Analytical Centre for the Rational Use of the Subsoil” in the first quarter of 2023.

September, 7, 2021. A new geological map “Structural Framework of the Western Siberian Oil and Gas Province” was published at the Geoportal YUGRA, which displays a structural-stratigraphic model of the region.

It is the result of calculations of the GST (GeoSpline Technology) software complex developed at the Centre and it is a set of consistent structural maps linked to stratigraphy and seismic interpretation databases.
The structural maps characterize the structure of the pre-Jurassic, Lower, Middle and Upper Jurassic oil and gas reservoirs, the Cenomanian and Neocomian part of the geological cross section.

“Framework” base is structural maps for 4 key horizons - A, B, M, G. Each of them consists of two layers: a color fill with the addition of a light-and-shade image and an isoline layer, which appears when you zoom in. The layers of intermediate formations and benches of the Lower and Middle Jurassic oil and gas reservoirs include both color filling and contours of isolines. The names of suites, formations and benches in the context menu correspond to the most common names at the territory of the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug-Yugra.

Regional seismic profiles, key-parametric and prospecting and exploration wells are added to the map. To link to the location, the map is supplemented with groups of geographical information and licensing layers.
You can use the tool  to obtain the absolute elevation of any structural surface at any point (up to 1 meter), and visually match the shape and values of the user added layer and the key horizon isolines.

On April 15, 2021 Vladimir Ilich Shpilman, an outstanding scientist, Doctor of Geological and Mineralogical Sciences, creator and first Director of Research and Analytical Centre for the Rational Use of the Subsoil, turned 80.

He was a hereditary geologist, a scientist of international fame, he promoted the achievements of Soviet geological science passionately and highly professionally. He participated in many congresses and symposia. He was invited by geological services of the USA, China, Switzerland to give lectures and speak at scientific seminars and discussions in Washington, Geneva, Beijing and Shanghai. Shpilman's papers are widely known in Russia and abroad. Vladimir Ilich was a full member of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences, Honorary Professor at the Chinese Petroleum University; he is an author of more than 190 articles and 11 monographs.

V.I. Shpilman did a great deal to develop mathematical methods of assessment based on the genetic theory of the organic oil origin. The tectonic map of the central regions of Western Siberia and the quantitave forecast of oil and gas potential became his key papers, marking a new milestone in the geology history. The Centre’s staff remembers of Vladimir Ilich with special warmth, as a person who is responsive and kind, but forward-looking and strict at the same time. He appreciated in people the decency and determination, patriotism and craving for new knowledge. He believed that science cannot be done on a schedule. He could work at night and, having slept only a few hours, again run to work. Many of us remember how the Centre's team was formed, how the right people came, sometimes led by some "highest force", entire teams came who wanted to create a significant system of rational subsoil use for the country.

Salaries were low for everyone at the very beginning, the Director's salary was a little more than the salary of a researcher, but, despite this, the very strong team was gathered and they worked effectively. The Centre still holds the first foundation charter and the scheme of interaction of the Centre with government organizations, large companies, institutes and scientific centres manually drawn by Vladimir Ilich. What Vladimir Ilich did in the first half of the 90s in the field of subsoil use in the transition to market relations is one of the largest achievements that formed the basis of the modern subsoil use system. A few years after its development, the Centre became a reference organization in the resource management system, creating a powerful complex of databases, analytics and forecasting. One of the key pillars on which the Centre held, Vladimir Ilich considered training accessible to all staff both in Russia and abroad. Having adopted the Canadian colleagues experience, at that time the unique Core Storage Facility was built in the Yugra, as an idea of Shpilman, embodied in life, reaped the rewards. Until now, the Core storage Facility is a "power place" for scientists, geologists, students of specialized universities. The staff receives several delegations of prominent politicians, scientists and friends of the V.I. Shpilman Centre of the highest rank every year. There are people whose names need to be left in the memory of descendants. The name of Vladimir Ilich Shpilman should be transferred through the ages, as an example of the Geologist, the Scientist, the Man. He is the honorary citizen of the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug. Research and Analytical Centre for the Rational Use of the Subsoil of the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug was named after him in 2001, a new oil field discovered in the Oktyabrskiy district of the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug was named after him in 2006.

And though Shpilman worked not for titles and awards, but still... V.I. Shpilman was awarded the USSR State Prize in the field of science and technology for the discovery and accelerated preparation for the industrial development of the Yamburg gas condensate field, among others. He was awarded the gold medal of Exhibition of Economic Achievements of the USSR, the silver medal of Exhibition of Economic Achievements of the USSR, and he was awarded the title of laureate of the USSR State Prize. He was awarded medals "For Labor Distinction," "For the Development of the Subsoil and Oil Complex of Western Siberia," the badge "Outstanding prospector", the jubilee sign "300 Years of the Mining and Geological Service of Russia».

Vladimir Ilich died on January 11, 2001. He was buried in Tyumen. We love and remember...

The geography of the conference participants has significantly expanded and has already gone beyond the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug - Yugra, almost completely covering the oil and gas producing regions of the Western Siberia.
Anyway, the main issues were related to a decrease in funding for state programs in connection with the pandemic and a decrease in oil prices.

All participants are understanding of the current situation, and make their proposals for the development of the resource potential and enhanced oil recovery.

At the conference, it was said that new methods in former time, such as multi-stage fracturing, or sidetracking and lateral drilling became the basic methods of oil field development, perhaps physical and chemical methods of enhanced oil recovery will soon become the base too taking into account that it becomes more difficult to extract oil.
Rational proposals, starting with economic and legal measures, and ending with oil fields development, when successfully implemented, will not only help to "stay afloat" in our difficult time, but will also contribute to the development of the resources industry and applied science.

September, 02, 2020. A special event on the occasion of Oil and Gas Industry Workers Day took place at Autonomous Institution “V.I. Shpilman Research and Analytical Centre for the Rational Use of the Subsoil”. The teleconference was initiated between Tyumen and Khanty-Mansiysk cities.

Natalya Vladimirovna Komarova as Governor of Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug-Yugra delivered an opening speech to participants.

A wife of Viktor Vasilyevich Kitaev named Nina Nikolaevna was among the honored guests of Autonomous Institution “V.I. Shpilman Research and Analytical Centre for the Rational Use of the Subsoil”. The name of Viktor Vasilyevich Kitaev, as a pioneering explorer, participant of exploitation of the Samotlor field, and the name of Ivan Ukhlivanovich Aidullin, as the Hero of Labor of the Russian Federation became immortalized on the Memorial «Yugra’s Stars».

It is difficult for Ivan Ukhlivanovich to speak on camera. It had been said who had known him personally that the oil worker feels better and more homelike on the drill site. Viktor Vasilievich has been no longer with us. His wife Nina Nikolaevna, who had always been with her husband, passed with him all the hardships of the exploration of Western Siberia, has known the «price of Siberian oil». The certificate confirming the opening of «Yugra’s Stars» memorial plate in honor of Viktor Vasilyevich Kitaev is in truth one of the most valuable awards. Nina Nikolaevna desires to visit Khanty-Mansiysk city, where she has spent years of her life, desires to see how the city has been changed over the past 20 years and see the name of her husband on the Memorial «Yugra’s Stars» with her own eyes.

Temporarily in charge of the Director of Autonomous Institution “V.I. Shpilman Research and Analytical Centre for the Rational Use of the Subsoil” P.A. Stulov and Deputy Director of Autonomous Institution “V.I. Shpilman Research and Analytical Centre for the Rational Use of the Subsoil” L.M. Zakharova participated in the meeting.

S.A. Filatov, Director of Subsurface Resources Management Department of the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug-Yugra delivered an opening speech and presented a paper on geological and exploration works at the Okrug to the participants. L.M. Zakharova presented the offers of the Program of 2021-2025 geological and exploration works for new prospective plots and oil and gas mineral reserves replacement of Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug-Yugra.
It was suggested to include the following items in the Program:

- Reginal seismic prospecting on Karabashskiy field covered 2800 km2.  Karabashskaya  prospecting area was chosen for 2D seismic prospecting first of all. The prospecting area covered 4800 km2 was divided into three plots:  Karabashskiy 1, Karabashskiy 2, Karabashskiy 3. Karabashskiy 1 and Karabashskiy 2 are the part of the list of prospective plots offered in 2020-2022 for prospecting by the order of Federal Agency for Subsoil Use by now.

- Another prospecting plot for seismic prospecting was suggested in the Eastern part of the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug-Yugra, on the territory of the Nizhnevartovskiy administrative region – Verkhnevakhskiy. The plot’s area is 3223 km2. The purpose of the work is to study a pre-Jurassic period contour map, a sedimentary mantle with help of seismic reflection interfaces for Cretaceous and Jurassic deposits to define structural and non-anticlinal traps with evaluation of the resources (D0 – prepared and Dl - localized) by interconnecting of seismic and lithochemistry.

- The parametric well 5  Verkhneogurinskaya offered for drilling in the northwest part of the region and the parametric well 32 Verkhnevakhskaya recommended for drilling in the eastern part of the region, on the border with Krasnoyarsk territory, was included in the Program repeatedly in the previous years. The wells were not drilled yet and were suggested to include in the Program.

- Severo-Shugurskaya well 1 was suggested to drill on the territory of the southwest slope of Vostochno-Sheburskiy high, in the Maloshugurskaya structure contour. This well-drilling will clarify the geological model in the area of regional profile 101-2 and allow to obtain new data on the oil and gas content prospects of Jurassic and pre-Jurassic oil-and-gas bearing complexes.

The offered prospective plots were considered positively during the meeting and included in the in 2021-2025 Program.
