Ukraine’s DTEK Oil&Gas uses Weatherford technology in local gas field survey

DTEK Oil & Gas has conducted a survey of well-59 in Ukraine’s Machukhske gas and condensate field using data-logging technologies in order to evaluate the reservoir’s potential for significant sedimentary properties in its carbonate pay zone.

For the first time in Europe, Focused Magnetic Resonance (FMR) technology, developed by Weatherford International was used in undertaking the comprehensive study of the reservoir.

Use of the Focused Magnetic Resonance Tool (FMRT) during the work, allowed for higher pressure and temperature ratings – 138 ?P? and 177deg C, respectively. Further advantageous features of the technology include its powerful and flexible logging activations, reduced borehole signal, which enabled the instrument to be used in highly conductive muds, and its specific design, permitting a single tool design to run in all borehole sizes with the appropriate standoffs and eccentralisation hardware.

Evheniy Solodky, Head of Exploration at DTEK Oil&Gas, said: “Conducting the high-tech research at well-59 in the Machukhske field, we have been able to increase the precision of our geological and hydrodynamic field models. We’ve improved the accuracy of our real-time geological and technological field model, located zones which had previously gone undetected, and optimised parameters for further field development. Thanks to this and other research, we managed to drill a highly-productive well capable of providing over 400 000 cubic meters per day of natural gas. We are grateful to our partners at Weatherford for their successful collaboration on this project".
