An innovative complex of geological exploration work, including both modern geological research and new technologies for processing geophysical information, made it possible to discover the undeveloped area of the field, within which an exploratory well was drilled. The results of the work helped to detail the geological and hydrodynamic models of the field and confirm the prospects for further development of the site.
The well was drilled in 136 days as planned. The use of 3D geomechanical modeling data and a properly selected drilling fluid made it possible to reduce the risks of drilling and improve the quality of penetration of productive formations.
DTEK Neftegaz CEO Igor Shchurov noted :
“Our company systematically introduces the latest technologies along the entire production chain - from geological exploration and drilling to gas production and treatment. This allows us to develop deposits with difficult mining and geological conditions and drill high-rate wells. So, thanks to the use of modern technologies, since 2015 we have produced an additional 1.5 billion cubic meters of gas - this is the contribution of DTEK Oil and Gas to achieving energy independence in Ukraine. ”
As a reminder, in 2020 DTEK Neftegaz produced 1.84 billion m 3 gas, which set a new record for private gas production in Ukraine. In 2021, the company plans to increase its natural gas production to 2 bcm 3 .
