Ukrgasvydobuvannya begins 2024 with new high-yield well producing 250,000 cubic meters daily

Ukrgasvydobuvannya has begun the new year by commissioning a new exploration well. This is the tenth well at this deposit.

Ukrgasvydobuvannya specialists continue to explore the field's potential and are directing steps to enhance production by applying new technologies and engineering solutions.

We have valuable 3D seismic data for this deposit that allows us to identify optimal points for new wells. This geological information picture has been supplemented by 10 exploration wells. We plan to commence production drilling later this year," commented Oleh Tolmachev, Acting General Director of Ukrgasvydobuvannya.

The location for the new well was based on existing 3D seismic surveys. The well has a depth of 3,950 meters and was drilled by the Ukrburgaz drilling unit.

Background: in 2023, Ukrgasvydobuvannya increased daily gas production by 11% and reached the highest level since April 2019.

The company is actively exploring and developing new fields. In 2023, a major new deposit was identified in western Ukraine as a result of a large-scale 3D seismic survey covering an area of 1,500 square kilometers.
