Specialists of the Integra Group have conducted training on high-tech drilling methods

Geophysical studies of wells in the process of drilling, well path control, telemetry systems and principles of operation became the main theme of the training conducted by specialists of Smith Siberian Services LLC (part of the Integra Group) for representatives of the customer – The Service of Deputy General Director for Drilling of Samotlorneftegaz JSC (NK Rosneft PJSC).

Not a well is drilled at SNG JSC deposit fields without the use of telemetric systems that make it possible to receive data on directional survey and geophysical properties during the drilling process. "The goals pursued in the process of drilling using telemetric systems are not only to enter the productive horizon with the required parameters and control the borehole profile according to the planned values, but also to eliminate dangerous approaches and intersections with previously drilled boreholes," says Rustam Zakirov, Managing Director of Smith Siberian Services LLC. "To achieve these goals, modern advanced software is used that allows to consider physical properties of the material of drill string elements, their geometric dimensions, mechanical properties of rocks, magnetic behavior of the Earth, and build well models before drilling. Integra has all necessary software and high-class specialists who perform calculations and simulation of wells with the help of such software."

During the theoretical part of the training the company’s specialists have provided detailed information on all possibilities of telemetric equipment used by Smith Siberian Services LLC at Samotlor and other fields in Russia and demonstrated them on test equipment in the laboratory during the practical part.

"Such trainings surely develop partner relations with our customer. They make it possible to exchange opinions in the course of meaningful dialogue, increase the knowledge of specialists. Specialists and management of the Service of Deputy Director General for Drilling of JSC Samotlorneftegaz (NK Rosneft PJSC) were completely satisfied with the result, completeness of information and the level of training. We agreed to move forward, continue developing additional topics for trainings and communications, " said Vladimir Dorovsky, Director for Quality and Production Security of Smith Siberian Services LLC (Integra Group).



Smith Siberian Services LLC is currently constructing production directional and horizontal wells for JSC Samotlorneftegaz (NK Rosneft PJSC). This is a high-tech project, where a prevailing number of wells are completed horizontally and drilled using gamma-ray logging and resistivimetry, which allows to make a well profile in the productive layer with the highest accuracy, and for the customer, in turn, to obtain maximum efficient raw extraction. In 2015, two directional and 13 horizontal wells were drilled at the Samotlor deposit field, during 10 months of 2016 - 3 directional wells and 47 horizontal wells were drilled. The NPT indicator per 1,000 meters was reduced in 2016 by more than 6 times.
