• History


Belarusian Scientific Research and Design Institute of Oil BelNIPIneft was established on the 25th of December, 1967 as Gomel Petroleum Engineering Department of UkrGIPRONIIneft for research and development support and reservoir and production engineering in Belarus, where in 1964 first commercial oil fields were discovered in Prypiat downfold. 

In 1991 on the basis of Gomel Petroleum Engineering Department of UkrGIPRONIIneft Belarusian Scientific Research and Design Institute of Oil BelNIPIneft was established as a structural division of Production Association Belorusneft.

Today, the principal objectives of the Institute are to provide technological and engineering solutions for oil producing industry of the Republic of Belarus and to promote export of services for oil producing and service companies of CIS and non­CIS countries.

We provide services in planning of geologic exploration; processing and interpretation of seismic data; reserve estimation; development of design documents for well construction; field development; development of complex workover programs, aimed at improvement of reserve recovery; creation and maintenance of static and dynamic models; implementation of telemetry systems for equipment and oil production facilities; fluid flow tracking; adaptation and implementation of new technologies of enhanced oil recovery and production stimulation; development of projects for field facilities construction, ecological regulations and development of documents associated with labor and industrial safety.

Among our closest partners such Russian companies as JSC «Zarubezhneft», JSC «Lukoil», PJSC «Gazpromneft», LLC «Bashneft­Dobycha», JSC «Evrokhim», PJSC OC «RussNeft», PC «Krylov VNIIneft», etc. Foreign partners – PDVSA (Venezuela), Oil Limited India (India), Petroamazonas (Ecuador).

The Institute is staffed with high skilled specialists. 90 researchers, 348 engineers and technicians, including 13 Candidates of Sciences and 56 holders of master’s degree work for Belnipineft R&D Institute.

The Institute owns the advanced laboratory facilities with high performance equipment for carrying out a wide range of scientific­research studies. The results of the studies are published in the Institute’s collections of studies, special scientific and technical collections, issued abroad as well.

Over the past 10 years the Institute has received more than 100 invention and useful model patents of the Republic of Belarus, the Russian Federation and the Eurasian Patent Office. Many patented solutions have been put in production and bring economical profit.

The Institute has a system of quality control, meeting the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 standard and a system of ecological management, meeting the requirements of ISO 14001:2017 standard. The Institute is certified as a scientific organization.

We clearly see the objectives and realize the importance of the problems solved. We encourage oil companies, research and development institutes, service enterprises towards mutually beneficial cooperation!
