The project was undertaken by specialists from Gazpromneft-Snabzheniye, representatives from Russian drone and unmanned-systems producer Tiber LLC, and employees at Messoyakhaneftegaz.

The UAV, controlled from the company’s logistics base in the Tazovsky settlement, successfully completed a route, delivering load to the field.

The drone has demonstrated high technical capabilities under Arctic conditions.

A second round of testing is planned at the Vostochno-Messoyakhskoye field in December 2020, with drone developers and oil-industry specialists all keen to test it under Arctic winter conditions.
