Naftogaz launches another well of 230,000 cubic metres of gas per day

Ukrainian gas company Ukrgazvydobuvannya (Naftogaz Group) has drilled and put into operation another high-rate well in eastern Ukraine with a current production rate of 230,000 cubic metres of natural gas per day, Naftogaz announced on 5 June.

Last month, the Group launched a production well with a depth of 5,800 metres and a production rate of 580,000 cubic metres of gas per day.

“We were able to deliver this result at a gas field discovered more than 45 years ago, which had long been seen as having low potential. Upon application of updated approaches to data interpretation, the Ukrgazvydobuvannya development team discovered additional gas reserves in the subsoil. I am very grateful to all the employees who took part in these efforts,” said Oleksiy Chernyshov, CEO of Naftogaz Group.

Five more new wells are planned in this field to unlock the identified gas production potential in full, Naftogaz said.

“Our goal is to produce at least one million cubic meters of gas per day at this field. This will be a significant contribution to the implementation of our plan to provide the whole of Ukraine with gas for domestic production during the next heating season,” said Oleh Tolmachev, Acting General Director of Ukrgazvydobuvannya.
