Three million tons
“Belorusneft” has extracted total of three million tons of oil from the restored wells by ratholing.
In the early 90’s, this method was considered as one of the priority directions for further increase in oil production. The basic stage in the development of the method was the adoption in 1998 of the target program to restore the abandoned wells.
Over the years of implementation of this program the team of Department for enhanced oil recovery and well workover has drilled about 128 thousand meters of rock, constructed 230 ratholes, which produced 3 million tons of oil. Experience in this work, gained in Belarus, for the past five years has been successfully used by our experts in the “Belorusneft-Siberia” LLC – the company, which operates in Russia, in the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous District.
