Gazprom Neft subsidiary Gazpromneft-Yamal has completed construction of Russia’s first ever multilateral well with four horizontal cased-hole side tracks, at its Novoportovskoye field.

A total 6756m was drilled, including 4411m drilled in the target strata. The well was constructed in 39 days at a rate of 5.78 days per 1000m.

Drilling horizontally branched wells facilitates a manifold increase in drainage from disjointed low-permeability strata, significantly increasing the oil recovery factor at productive strata and bringing marginal reserves into development without the need to drill additional wells.

Russian-produced equipment was used in well construction, retooled in line with the specific geological conditions of the Novoportovskoye field.
