Exploration and Production

Exploration and production of hydrocarbons is based on a long tradition dating back to 1913, when crude oil was first discovered in Záhorie.

The experience and geological data acquired over several decades are an important part of our company's know-how, and are important in the success of geological and drilling projects. Thanks to our many years of experience, our know-how is able to complete both in the domestic market and abroad.

Production of gas in Slovakia currently totals around 90 mcm. Production of oil is concentrated mainly in the Zahorie Basin, mainly near Malacky and Gbely. Here too, NAFTA is exploiting their knowledge and experience applying methods used in advanced European markets. The produced oil is subsequently treated by NAFTA in its own facilities and is then dispatched to domestic and foreign customers.

NAFTA is making progress in exploration too; in 2012, we drilled 7 exploration wells in total which are currently being tested to prove producible hydrocarbon reserves. Further drilling projects are scheduled in the near future, based on data obtained from already performed exploration activities.
 
Our attention focuse on the environment. Work was carried out to close the centers in Slovakia - to clean up the sites, biologically reclaim it and and their incorporation into nature.
