Naftogaz has launched a superdeep borehole in Poltava region

Ukrgazvydobuvannya has completed the drilling of another superdeep borehole No.58 at the Komyshnyanske field in the Poltava region. A significant inflow of hydrocarbons was obtained at a depth of 6040 meters – more than 170 thousand m³ of gas per day, the press service reports.

The Komyshnyanske field is geologically complex and is determined by the deep occurrence of productive horizons. Its reserves are about 8 billion cubic meters of gas. During the year, the company completed drilling three deep boreholes at the field, the last of which is production borehole No.58.

“Ukraine has significant potential for the production of hydrocarbons at depths of more than 5 thousand meters. Therefore, we consider deep horizons as one of the strategic directions for finding new deposits and building up gas reserves. However, drilling boreholes at great depths is associated with increased risks: both geological and technical and economic. The new borehole has once again proved that Naftogaz specialists have the necessary experience and expertise to achieve the goal. At the same time, the company needs incentive decisions from the state and investments,” commented Oleksandr Romaniuk, director of the Naftogaz Exploration and Production division.

The borehole was drilled 41 days faster than planned.

The Komyshnyanske field is in an active stage of development. Drilling of another new borehole has already begun, and two more are planned for the next six months.

The Komyshnyanske gas condensate field is located in the Myrhorodskyi district of the Poltava region. It was opened in 1984 and put into operation in 1995.

Currently, 11 boreholes are in operation at the field, the daily production figure of which is about 1 million m³ of gas.

To recap, Ukrgazvydobuvannya received permission to drill 11 blocked wells.
