“Technology of sidetracking allows you to take in the development of previously untapped sections of the reservoir, as well as hard-to-recover reserves of oil and gas, production of which had previously been impossible. Today is completed by drilling sidetracks on two well chutovskogo and Maevskogo fields,” the report says.

It is noted that the average daily yield of the wells which have been restored,

is about 70 thousand cubic meters of gas per day. In future we plan to conduct these wells operation intensification of production that will further increase the production rate.

The press service noted that the technology of sidetracking has a number of significant advantages, namely: low cost because of no need of summing up the new communications, reducing costs for equipment and supplies; the recovery rate of the well bore; the cost of work is much less drilling of new wells; saving on field development due to the high neftegazodobychi.

It is reported that the work was performed subsidiary company “of Belarusneft”. Within the framework of the contract is planned to perform these operations on the 6 wells before the end of may 2019.

As reported the UNIAN, “ukrgazvidobuvannya” in 2018 compared to 2017, increased natural gas production by 1.6% to 15,496 billion cubic meters.
