In 1986 JV “Vietsovpetro” started commercial oil production from Miocene-Oligocene pools of White Tiger field. A great success of Russian specialists was the discovery in 1988 of unique high productive oil pool in the granites of crystalline basement.
On July, 16th, 1991, Governments of the two countries signed the Agreement on further cooperation in the field of oil and gas exploration and production on the South Vietnam shelf within the frames of Joint Soviet-Vietnamese enterprise “Vietsovpetro”.
JV “Vietsovpetro” participants: JSC “Zarubezhneft” and Oil and Gas Corporation “Petrovietnam”. As of January, 01st, 1991, JV authorized capital was adopted at the amount of 1,5 billion USD, at that, each Party share is 50%.
In 1996 Russia fully reimbursed its contribution to JV “Vietsovpetro” authorized capital (750 million USD).
In December, 27, 2010 Intergovernmental agreement on prolongation of the activity of JV "Vietsovpetro" was signed. According to this agreement the share of Petrovietnam is 51%, Zarubezhneft's 49% and Joint Venture was prolonged for another 20 years' term till 2030.
Original recoverable oil reserves in White Tiger field were 191,1 million tons, in Dragon field – 20 million tons.
In the end of December, 1988, first million tons of oil were produced. In August 2012 200 million tons of oil were produced.
Annual oil production in JV “Vietsovpetro” has been increasing sharply and in 2002 reached its peak – 13,5 million tons. Afterwards, due to objective causes, oil production started to decrease: 2003 – 13,12 million tons, 2004 – 12,22 million tons, 2005 – 10,65 million tons, 2006 – 9,8 million tons, 2007 – 8,7 million tons, 2008 – 7,7 million tons, 2011 - 6.4 million tons.
