GOMEL, 26 October (BelTA) – The rig assembly branch of the Belarusian company Belorusneft assembled 35 drill rigs in January-September 2021, the company's press service told BelTA.
In September the division handed over three drill rigs to the customer – the Svetlogorsk drilling operations office. One Uralmash 3D-86 drill rig was erected in the Vishanskoye deposit and another one in the Tishkovskoye deposit. An echelon drill rig made by Drillmec was assembled in the Rechitsa area.
The rig assembly division has started building new wells using prepared drill rigs. They built five wells in September, including four in the Rechitsa area. The wells' depth varies from 2,606m to 3,300m. The fifth well is 2,783m deep and is located in one of Belorusneft's new deposits Beskopylnoye.
Well construction proceeds in the Rechitsa area, including at a cluster site. It is there that the Drillmec echelon-type drill rig is used. This kind of drilling is popular in Western Siberia where wells are built in quite tight areas due to swampy lands. Belarus has been using this format since 2014 when Belorusneft acquired the first drill rig based on rails. Rails are used to transport the massive installation from one well to another.
The rig assembly branch of Belorusneft is now also working in the Marmovichskoye deposit and the Vishanskoye deposit.
