Geological modelling of the field indicates oil reserves in the order of 72 million tonnes.

The Severo-Sambrugsky licence block is located 100 kilometres north of Novy Urengoy. The licence for hydrocarbon exploration and production at the Severo-Samburgskoye field will be transferred to Gazprom Neft from Gazprom Dobycha Urengoy in 2017.

Once the licence transfer is complete Gazpromneft-Yamal plans to undertake retesting of two oil wells at the Severo-Samburgskoye field, as well as to carry out 3D-seismic works in order to fine-tune data on the geological construction of the field.
