Rosneft Subsidiary Conducts Record Fracturing Op at Urengolskoe Field
Russia's Rosneft reported Tuesday that its Rospan International subsidiary has carried out a "record hydrofracturing" operation at its Urengolskoe field, located in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District, that has resulted in a nine-times increase in the field's production rate.
Rosneft said the Achimov gas-condensate formation had seen 400 tons of proppant pumped into it via the 2-06-03 well, compared to a previous record of 312 tons. Following this, the gas flow rate increased from 70,000 to 600,000 cubic meters per day (21.2 million cubic feet per day).
The firm said that its new approach to hydrofracturing has allowed it to increase the efficiency of its operating activities at Urengolskoe by 50 percent.
