Gazprom Neft conducts 30-stage hydraulic fracturing operation

PJSC Gazprom Neft said it completed a 30-stage hydraulic fracturing operation in Russia’s Yuzhno-Priobskoye field.

The company conducted an 18-stage operation in the same field in March and a 15-stager last December (OGJ Online, Mar. 17, 2016).

The well’s total length was more than 4,600 m. The 30-stage operation was in a 1,500-m horizontal section, and the company used 1,200 tonnes of proppant.

The oil-bearing strata lies at a depth of more than 2,600 m. The anticipated operational capacity of the well is likely to be in excess of 130 tonnes/day, some 20% higher than forecast levels following lower-stage fracing operations.
