Based on the report of Yuri Nagornyak, Production Director of Ukrgazdobycha PJSC, delivered in the PoltNTU named after Yuri Kondratyuk within the "Day of Well Casing Service" on February 15, 2018.
The total number of casing cementing operations by Ukrgazdobycha PJSC in 2016-2017 amounted to 782. 366 cementing operations were carried out in 2016. In 2017, the number of casing cementing operations grew up to 416 and from the beginning of 2018 it accounted for 63 cementing operations.
For this period, 7 failed cementations were carried out with an early "stop" signal. The number of wells with abnormally high pressure (temperature) is 11, intercasing pressure wells - 9.
In 2018, Ukrgazdobycha PJSC expects to drill 483 thousand meters.
In 2017, the penetration of the company was 247 thousand meters. Of them, 240 thousand meters were drilled by DD Ukrburgaz, and 7 thousand meters were outsourced.
The company’s demand for well casing service in 2018 will be 493 cementing operations. Also, about 160 cement bridges to be installed.
At that, according to the forecasts provided by DD Ukrburgaz for the Eastern region, 121 lowered casing will wait for cementation due to the lack of grouting machinery. For the same reason, 3 lowered casing in the Western region will wait for cementation as well.
Ukrgazdobycha PJSC expects to drill 178 wells until 2020. The expected number of cementing operations before 2020 is 1,800, 60% of which the company can perform by its own.
