Gazprom Neft Improves Efficiency at the Chayandinskoye Field

Gazpromneft-Zapolyarye has commissioned its first “fishbone” well at an oil-rim deposit at the Chayandinskoye field in Yakutia. The initial flow rate from this multi-branched well has exceeded that of previously used horizontal structures, at about 400 tonnes per day.

This initial multi-branched “fishbone” well, at an oil-rim deposit at the Chayandinskoye oil and gas condensate field (COGCF), has a main shaft running to a length of 1.5 kilometres, with six lateral branches, each up to 830 metres long. Total borehole drilling exceeded 8.1 kilometres, of which 5.2 km was along productive strata (the “pay zone”). This construction has made it possible to increase coverage of the deposit, increasing the oil recovery factor (ORF). The initial flow rate through this fishbone well is more than 380 tonnes per day — double the level achieved through the standard horizontal wells previously used at Chayanda.

The Chayandinskoye field is marked by a complex geological structure and exceptionally low formation pressure. A 3D hydrodynamic model of the COGCF’s oil-rim deposit was used in creating the development programme for this asset. Specialists at Gazprom Neft’s Science and Technology Centre and Gazpromneft-Zapolyarye made approximately 500 multivariate calculations in comparing the advantages of various well types for producing Chayandinskoye oil before finally coming down in favour of a “fishbone” well.

A total 44 high-tech fishbone wells are to be drilled at the COGCF oil-rim deposit by end-2024, with five such multi-hole wells being commissioned this year. The company is currently operating seven oil-producing wells at the COGCF, and drilling several more.

Full-scale development of the COGCF oil-rim deposit will start in 2020. The CPF (which has a planned capacity of one million tonnes per year) is expected to be expanded and modernised by 2022. Gazpromneft-Zapolyarye is now building a 70-kilometre pressure pipeline to connect the COGCF to the East-Siberia Pacific Ocean (ESPO) trunk pipeline. The field’s production plateau is expected to be reached by 2023, at about three million tonnes of oil equivalent (mtoe) per year.
