The project “Construction of Development Gas Wells at Pelyatka Gas Condensate Field” envisages construction of twelve wells by the end of 2016. The aim of the project is to ensure gas production in the amount sufficient for uninterruptable power supply to Norilsk Nickel production facilities and housing sector of surrounding area.
Integra-Burenie Company from Nizhnevartovsk is the construction contractor. The company is responsible for the whole scope of works, including erection of derricks, sinking and testing of wells, furnishing and surveying thereof. At the moment, works are in progress at well pad No. 4 of Pelyatka Gas Condensate Field.
From the project start in 2014 to July 2016 seven wells were drilled at the well pad No. 6 in total. In winter 2016 the contractor moved the dill rig and team facilities and utilities to the well pad No. 4. Here within in March to May a vertical well No. 841 was drilled with over 200 meters of coring.
