The article deals with the problems of complex power supply of the well construction process in adverse climatic conditions. An option of associated petroleum gas utilization in power units for drilling operations is offered. The method of calculating heat losses of technological objects and required heating capacity for maintaining working temperature is given. A combined heat and power scheme enabling simultaneous electric and heat supply of oilfield objects with the use of associated petroleum gas as an energy source for power generation units is developed. Implementation of such a scheme guarantees power structure functioning without downfalls of produced en-ergy during the year, thus maintaining high efficiency of overall power generation.
