FIRST WELL IN TURONIAN ROCKS
ERIELL Group has successfully completed drilling of the first well within the framework of the new project with Severneftegazprom at the Yuzhno-Russkoye oil/gas/condensate field known for some of the most hard-to-recover gas reserves. The field is characterized by abnormally high reservoir pressure, low reservoir temperatures, lithological non-uniformity and variability and low reservoir permeability.
«With this well the commercial development of Turonian deposits started for the first time in Russia», – said Vitaly Dokunikhin, ERIELL Group Executive Director.
ERIELL Group was elected the main contractor for construction of the horizontal production well with invert end of the 114 degree horizontal wellbore section. True vertical depth being 850 m the overall borehole length made 1804 meters. To maintain the set trajectory parameters ERIELL engaged Schlumberger equipment with an LVD array enabling real-time geosteering and the poroperm properties appraisal. Use of oscillator in the assembly ensured drilling of the well section with only one relocation of the elements and this with a 50/50 relation of the slant/horizontal hole sections.
Within the framework of this project it is also planned to complete construction of 6 exploratory wells by 31.08.16.

AN - China National Offshore Oil Corp. (CNOOC) is willing to invest $3 billion in its existing oil and gas operation in Nigeria, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) said on Sunday following a meeting with the Chinese in Abuja.
REUTERS - Production at Libya’s giant Sharara oil field was expected to fall by at least 160,000 barrels per day (bpd) on Saturday after two staff were abducted in an attack by an unknown group, the National Oil Corporation (NOC) said.
IMF - Output grew by 3.8 percent in 2017, underpinned by a resilient non-hydrocarbon sector, with robust implementation of GCC-funded projects as well as strong activity in the financial, hospitality, and education sectors. The banking system remains stable with large capital buffers. Growth is projected to decelerate over the medium term.
IMF - Higher oil prices and short-term portfolio inflows have provided relief from external and fiscal pressures but the recovery remains challenging. Inflation declined to its lowest level in more than two years. Real GDP expanded by 2 percent in the first quarter of 2018 compared to the first quarter of last year. However, activity in the non-oil non-agricultural sector remains weak as lower purchasing power weighs on consumer demand and as credit risk continues to limit bank lending.
