First ever hydraulic fracturing on Yamal Peninsula conducted at Novoport field

By Religare

Hydraulic fracturing was successfully conducted for the first time ever on the Yamal Peninsula at Novoport field. The operation was performed in a Jurassic sedimentation area characterized by a high complexity of its geologic structure.

A total of five hydraulic fracturing operations were performed at four wells, including single hydraulic fractures at vertical wells and a multistage hydraulic fracture on a horizontal well.

All of the wells were commissioned after the hydraulic fracturing was completed. The wells' average daily aggregate flow rate exceeds predicted values by 2.5 times. All of the wells are operating in the primary recovery stage.


Furthermore, drilling of the first of three planned wells at the second multi-well pad began at the field in April.

"We are planning to move forward substantially in our study of the geologic structure of Novoport field in 2013. Analysis of the results of the completed hydraulic fracturing operations and drilling which has begun at the second multi-well pad will help us understand Novoport's production potential. We plan further to apply hydraulic fracturing techniques for the development of Jurassic sediments," said Denis Kashapov, Executive Director of the Novy Port branch of Gazpromneft Razvitiye.
