Moscow, September 26 - Neftegaz.RU. NOVATEK announced today, that Yargeo, the company´s joint venture, successfully completed well number 68 targeting the Jurassic layers at the Yarudeyskoye field, utilizing a horizontal length of 1,068 meters as part of the well construction design.

Initial daily well flow rate amounted to 1,010 tons, representing the field’s best well flow rates since commissioning of the field in 2015. The flow rate was achieved without hydro-fracturing due to the well’s unique design, and is part of a program to maintain the field’s oil production.

In June 2015 NOVATEK launched the start of commercial production at the major Yarudeyskoye oil field. The field is developed by Yargeo, a joint venture between NOVATEK (51%) and Nefte Petroleum Limited (49%).

The Yarudeyskoye field is the largest crude oil asset in the company’s portfolio, and is characterized by unique geology, which combined with the application of state-of-the-art drilling and completion technologies allowed us to achieve the average production flow rate of more than 350 tons per day per well. The field’s average flow rate is one of the highest production output amongst fields producing in Western Siberia.

The field’s production complexity is characterized with high paraffin content (up to 17%) and a high pour point (about +15 °C). NOVATEK's specialists, together with Russian design organizations and research institutes, developed technological solutions that made it possible to optimize the field’s crude oil output and reach its design capacity in minimal time.
