This work describes the technological solutions that were used in the development of the Novoportovskoye field - a large oil and gas condensate field in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug. In particular, optimization of the associated gas utilization strategy is considered by organizing the reservoir pressure maintenance. The decisions were based on 3D mathematical calculations, analytical estimates, analysis of field information and reservoir simulation.

The paper presents the results of calculations performed to determine the specific efficiency of gas injection at productive formation. Additionally, weight coefficients of gas injection were calculated for gas well sites to identify the best injection zones. The paper provides the estimation of the current effect of the continuous two-year gas injection. The formation response to the gas injection into the gas cap was estimated by the usage of pressure-observation wells data, data from wells equipped with fiber-optic monitoring systems and by performing retrospective simulation.

The calculations made it possible to achieve complete utilization of associated petroleum gas and significantly increase the oil recovery factor.
