Falling oil production in Western Siberia
As experts Vygon Consulting in the review “Oil production in Western Siberia: reboot” write. Over the past 10 years, production in the region has decreased by 10%, if nothing is done, the rate of decline will accelerate to 2-3% annually, they predict.

Due to the increase in water cut, the average well production decreases – for 10 years by 36% to 27.5 tons per day
