Usinskoye field is a field located in Komi Republic.
The field's Permian-Carboniferous deposit contains crude that is highly viscous and uses thermal recovery methods for development. As of late 2016, proven reserves in the Permian-Carboniferous deposit total 472 mln barrels.
High profitability of oil production from the field's Permian-Carboniferous deposit is explained by the existing beneficial taxation of high viscosity crudes.
To step up oil recovery one has been injecting dispersed steam into high temperature areas, certain producers received cyclic steam treatment, including combined treatment that involve chemical injection.
At the field various oil recovery technologies are used: directional drilling of producers and construction of horizontal wells, which includes introduction of the heat-gravitational drainage technique.
