Ukrnaftoburinnya has successfully completed well No. 20, which resulted in the significant increase of the daily production rate at the Sakhalin field, reaching a record level of over 2 million m3 of natural gas.

When testing the B-16 formation at a depth of 5,000 meters, a commercial inflow of the gas condensate mixture was produced with a flow rate of 260 thousand m3 of gas and 50 tons of gas condensate.

The main contractor for the construction of well No. 20 was LLC Drilling Company Ukrburservis.

"The results of the well completion are quite significant. Moreover, this well helped the company open a new pool, which had not been previously used for commercial production. All this became possible thanks to a deep analysis of geological and commercial data, as well as the interpretation of 3D seismic data," said Volodymyr Novikov, the Head of the Geology Department.

"Ukrnaftoburinnya constantly increases the rates and volumes of gas and condensate production at the Sakhalin field. Once again our team has demonstrated a positive result of the drilling and development of wells, which has already become a regular practice for us. We intend to maintain this positive dynamic in the drilling and production of hydrocarbons for the next two years," said Michael Bakunenko, the Chairman of the Executive Board of PrJSC MC Ukrnaftoburinnya.
