The technology was tested in 2019-2020 on LUKOIL’s fields in the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Area – Yugra LUKOIL DEVELOPS ITS OWN COMPLETION SYSTEM FOR HORIZONTAL WELLS (Credit: LUKOIL) LUKOIL has become the first company in Russia to successfully develop and implement own completion system for horizontal wells. The high technological reliability of the new import substituting equipment will make it possible for the Company to start the commercial production of reserves which till recently was hindered due to lack of suitable Russian-made technology.This is the only made in Russia completion system for horizontal wells that is commercially used nowadays. It was developed by a LUKOIL subsidiary (RITEKcompany) and its contractor SP MeKaMinneft, and manufactured on its factory.The technology was tested in 2019-2020 on LUKOIL’s fields in the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Area – Yugra. More than 50 horizontal wells were drilled on the Vinogradov field with horizontal sections of 1600 meters and eight wells on the Sredne-Nazymskoye field with horizontal sections of 1500-1700 meters and multi-stage hydrofracturing in 15-17 zones. Owed to high controllability of equipment, time of well completion operations involving multistage hydrofracturing has been reduced by more than twofold.In November 2020 major elements of the horizontal well completion system, a frac sleeve for multistage fracturing and a hydro-mechanical shifting tool which is used to activate the frac sleeve, were patented in the Russian Federation.The import substituting equipment will also be used at other production facilities operated by subsidiaries of LUKOIL as well as by other oil and gas companies in Russia making it possible for them to no longer purchase expensive analogues from foreign suppliers. This will provide for the technological development of the industry and economically viable production of hard-to-recover reserves.Creation of the new system will also provide future orders for Russian producers of oilfield service eqiupment.

The well is part of the initial three well programme that is carried out to evaluate the Permian aged Kavango basin ReconAfrica starts drilling at Kalahari Desert in Africa. (Credit: Pixabay/Anita starzycka.) Reconnaissance Energy Africa (ReconAfrica), a Canadian oil and gas company, has announced the start of drilling operations on the first well (6-2) in the deep Kavango Basin in the Kalahari Desert of North East Namibia.The well is part of the initial three well programme that is carried out to evaluate the Permian aged Kavango basin.ReconAfrica said that it is planning to drill the well to a depth of 12,500ft to assess the potential hydrocarbon systems in one of the five major sub-basins of the larger and extensive basin.Reconnaissance Energy Africa drilling and completions senior vice president Nick Steinsberger said: “Drilling the first three wells in a newly discovered Permian basin, where one company holds all of the rights, is certainly a rare opportunity.“There are many important similarities between the Kavango basin and the Permian Basin in West Texas, one of the world’s most prolific producing basins, where I have been actively drilling and completing wells for many years.“I anticipate the first well will take up to 45 days to reach total depth and initial analysis of all prospective productive targets.”Drilling will be conducted using 1,000 HP rigThe first prospective section well, which be drilled using its 1,000 HP rig (Jarvie-1), is designed to reach 4,800ft, where intermediate casing will be set.Between intervals of 1,000ft to 4,800ft, sidewall cores and well logs will be run to identify targets. The well is expected to reach the top of the Permian section at about 4,000ft.The second section of the well is designed to reach a total depth of 12,500ft through the intermediate to lower Permian sections.To adhere to its environmental practices, ReconAfrica is working with Valence Drilling Fluids, a North American company offering organic and biodegradable drilling fluids.Valence Drilling Fluids vice president Gareth Eckhout said: “We welcome the opportunity to work alongside ReconAfrica on this project as they are a company that understands the importance of environmental protection with proven results.”Last February, the company agreed to acquire Crown 750 drilling rig from Henderson Rigs.
