SUMATEC OIL & GAS TOO carries out exploration works with the purpose of expanding the resource base. Exploration activities have been consistently delivering good results, driven by the advanced exploration techniques and selection of the most promising areas based on research results. To increase the success of exploration drilling, step-by-step implementation of advanced technologies for processing and interpreting seismic data continued. In particular, innovative approaches to account for inhomogeneities of the upper part of the column are used to minimize the forecast error for structures. At the design stage, finite-difference modeling of the wave field is carried out to select the optimal parameters of the seismic survey. 

The Company has paralleled expertise operations, which allows to minimize risks associated with the development of new fields and shorten new project lead times. Proximity to export markets and own transportation infrastructure reduces the transportation expenses and improves cost efficiency of operations in the region targets for exploration. Oil and gas exploration encompasses the processes and methods involved in locating potential sites for oil and gas drilling and extraction. Early oil and gas explorers relied upon surface signs like natural oil seeps, but developments in science and technology have made oil and gas exploration more efficient. Geological surveys are conducted using various means from testing subsoil for onshore exploration to using seismic imaging for offshore exploration.

Developing New Kinds Of Catalysts

All secondary refining processes require the presence of catalysts. SUMATEC OIL & GAS TOO partners with oil and gas refinery companies in the CIS with their own production facilities for catalytic-cracking catalysts, with capacity of 2,000 tonnes per year. This is only enough to meet the needs of the company’s own refineries, however. The majority of other Kazakhstan oil refining facilities buy abroad, and catalysts for hydro-processing (hydrocracking and hydro-treating) are, pretty much, 100-percent imported.

Project Benefits

SUMATEC OIL & GAS TOO is, to all intents and purposes, effectively creating a new industry in developing catalyst production at its Almaty Partners Refineries — an initiative that has been awarded the status of a national project by the Ministry of Energy in 2015. Projected capacity at the new facility is expected to reach 21,000 tonnes of catalysts per year — comprising 15,000 tonnes of cat-cracking catalysts, 4,000 tonnes of hydrotreatment catalysts, and 2,000 of hydrocracking products.
