Drilling has commenced at the Lebedinskoye oil and gas condensate field in the Sea of Okhotsk. It will drill a 5.3 km long horizontal extend-reach well under the bottom of the Sea of Okhotsk.
Drilling operations are carried out by the drilling contractor RN-Burenie for RN-Sakhalinmorneftegaz, a Rosneft subsidiary. During the well construction latest technologies will be used. In particular, the real time reservoir mapping technology will help ensure optimum entry into formation, make prompt decisions about well bore trajectory adjustment, and refine field development programmes.
As part of the project total of three horizontal production wells with the length of 5000 to 7000 m are to be drilled. The first oil from the new wells is expected in the current year. The infrastructure of RN-Sakhalinmorneftegaz will be used in the development of the field.Adapted from a press release by Louise Mulhall
