For the first time in Russia the company «Gazprom Neft» drilled in Yamal an oil well with the length of a horizontal borehole more than 1500 meters at its total length more than 4200 meters.
As it is informed in the press-service of the company, more than on 90 percent the horizontal part is situated in an oil-saturated stratum of Novoportovskoye formation, for which high permeability of rocks is characteristic.
It will allow receiving high production rates without use of operations on hydraulic fracturing. Final data about productiveness of the well will be given after completion of tests in the beginning of next year. In total during the time of development of Novoportovskoye field it is planned to drill about 90 wells with the length of horizontal parts more than 1500 meters.
As we should note, «Gazprom Neft» started the program on full-scale exploitation drilling in Novoportovskoye field this June. In total within the three-year plan of development of the field it is planned to build 5 clusters sites and to drill 60 wells. Extractable reserves of the field make more than 250 million tons of oil and condensate and also more than 320 milliard cubic meters of gas. Last year «Gazprom Neft Novy Port» completed the program of drilling within the experimental and industrial exploitation of the field. Full-scale development of Novoportovskoye field will start in 2016 after input of the round-year oil loading terminal to operation.
