New Ukrgasvydobuvannya well in Kharkiv region demonstrates strong indicators

Ukrgasvydobuvannya has drilled a new well in the Kharkiv region which yields 140,000 cubic meters of gas per day. The field in question has been exploited for half a century and was believed to be almost exhausted.

This result is possible thanks to updated geological data, as well as the use of the latest production intensification technologies.

Increasing domestic gas production and implementing projects that will bring us closer to energy independence is our absolute priority. This is especially true today when the enemy has chosen the energy sector as a target. Additional gas production will help Ukraine pass this year's heating season stably. I am grateful to all the specialists who made this project possible," commented Chief Executive Officer of NJSC “Naftogaz of Ukraine” Oleksiy Chernyshov.

In conditions where opportunities for the implementation of promising new projects are limited, we are focusing even more on identifying the residual potential of fields that have already been in operation for an extended period. The development of internal expertise and the latest technologies allow us to obtain additional gas where significant results were no longer expected. This is another important contribution to Ukraine’s gas supply stability during what promises to be an extremely difficult heating period," said Oleksandr Romaniuk, General Director of Ukrgasvydobuvannya.

The new well was designed by UkrNDIgaz specialists and drilled by Ukrburgaz specialists. UGV-Service employees performed operations to intensify production including three-stage hydraulic fracturing. The facility entered into operation ahead of schedule.
