Halliburton has been awarded a major contract extension by Salym Petroleum Development N.V. (SPD) for exploration and production services in Western Siberia, Russia.
Valued at approximately (USD) $100 million, the four-year contract calls for the provision of directional-drilling, measurement-while-drilling and logging-while-drilling, along with drilling fluids and cementing services and continues Halliburton's proven record of service delivery in the SPD fields for the last three years. The new wells to be drilled, with an average true vertical depth of 2,600 meters, include 400 S-shaped wells, plus directional and extended-reach wells.
The SPD oil fields -- located in Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug, 120 kilometers southwest of Surgut -- include West Salym, Upper Salym and the Vadelyp fields.
"SPD's 'drilling-the-limit' approach challenges us to continuously improve our performance," said Iain Dowell, Halliburton's country vice president for Russia. "We have established a high benchmark in terms of well quality and deliverability for its Russian drilling operations."
Halliburton's proven capabilities delivered under the initial contract include:
