MOSCOW (MRC) -- The city of Perm hosted the first contest of LUKOIL Group organizations among engineers of field development integrated modelling, said the company.

An integrated model is a comprehensive mathematical model that describes hydrocarbon production processes and their impact on financials of an upstream enterprise. Since 2012, LUKOIL has been successfully employing this method as one of the most high-end tools to calculate production potential, optimize extraction and devise operating performance plans. ?
Introduction of integrated modelling enabled the Company to implement dozens of economically efficient engineering projects in Western Siberia, Perm region, Astrakhan region, as well as its Iraqi West Qurna-2 field.
The first prize of the contest was awarded to Alexey Taybarey of LUKOIL-Komi LLC. The second place went to Artyom Beslik of KogalymNIPIneft, the city of Tyumen (a branch of LUKOIL-Engineering LLC). Vladimir Shulenin of LUKOIL-Komi LLC became the third. The contest was also held among teams composed of employees of various LUKOIL Group organizations.
We remind, Lukoil finished construction of a Petroleum Residue Recycling Facility with production capacity of 2.1 million tonnes per year at its LUKOIL-Nizhegorodnefteorgsintez LLC refinery. The facility is comprised of a delayed coking unit, diesel fuel and gasoline hydrotreatment unit, fractioning column, hydrogen and sulphur production unit, as well as infrastructure facilities.
