Poltavanaftogaz plans to resume production at Yuryevske and Budivske oil&gas fields
Poltavanaftogaz, a branch of Ukrnafta PJSC, plans to resume natural gas production at Yurivske and Budivske oil&gas fields located in Dnipropetrovsk and Sumy regions respectively.
This is stated on 11 June 2019 in the announcement made by the company about the planned activity and assessment of its environmental impact, placed in the Environmental Impact Register of the Ministry of Ecology of Natural Resources of Ukraine, June 11, 2019.
According to the report, Poltavanaftogaz plans to continue their operations in oil&gas production at the Budivske and Yuryevske oil&gas fields and deployment of necessary equipment for the operation. That aside, the company plans further development of wells to enhance production.
Planned production activities in the Yuryevske field include lifting of hydrocarbons from the oil well with the interchange rotation of pumping equipment. Reduction of wellhead pressure by re-equipment, construction of the collector for low-pressure wells on the pads, new pipeline configurations for transmission of natural gas from low-pressure wells to consumers.
The re-equipment of the Yuryevske oil&gas field is intended for the accumulation of oil and gas from the well pads, measurements of production rates, preparation and transmission of commodity products. Therefore, the arrangement includes a complete technological complex for treatment of natural gas and supply it to consumers, separation of light oils and condensate and pumping them through the stand pipes into tank trucks for transportation to storage facilities of the Novogrygorivsky oil&gas field.
At the Budivske oil&gas field they plan to re-equip Well №1, to enhance influx of light oils and gas condensate, to measure the well inflow rate, to treat the natgas into commodity gas and pump it into the Bilsk-Sumy national gas transmission pipeline, and accumulate natural gas condensate for onward transportation to customers. The re-equipment operations also include insulation of wells against subsoil waterlogging and the full technological complex for preparation of commodity gas.
The Yuryevske oil & gas field was opened in 1974. The area of the field is 6.77 sq. km with 31 wells drilled in the field, of which 6 wells are under active production ( 1 – oil well and 5 gas wells. , As of January 1, 2019, the Yuryevske oil&gas field have yielded 63,539 tons of oil, 3.672 million cubic meters of dissolved gas, 1521.399 million cubic meters of free gas, and 37.704 tons of gas condensate.
The Budivske oil and gas field, located in Okhtyrsky district of the Sumy Region, was opened in 2007. The production area of field is 37.94 sq. km. The field has two wells: Well №1 (currently in a conservation mode because of the end of a special permit for geological study and development) and Well №1 (abandoned for geological reasons after exploratory drilling results). As of January 1, 2019, the field yielded 46,173 million cubic meters of natural gas, 34,107 thousand tons of gas condensate, 0.257 thousand tons of oil, and 0,027 million cubic meters of dissolved gas.
