    Bashneft: will Reduce the Time for Well Testing by 150 Times

    To increase the efficiency of well survey, specialists from ANK Bashneft (part of Rosneft) began using Russian-made wireless dynamographs*. The new equipment has already been installed at 245 wells that are producing oil using rod pumps. In 2022, the number of new dynamographs will be increased to almost 2,000 units. At the first stage, the economic effect is expected at the level of 13 million rubles, with subsequent growth as the technology is scaled up.

    The introduction of wireless dynamographs does not require shutting down the well for the installation of instruments for the purpose of conducting research. The new equipment automatically monitors the performance of the well, due to which the time for its exploration is reduced by an average of 150 times: from 15-20 minutes to 5-10 seconds.

    Specialists from Bashneft-Dobycha (the key operator for oil and gas production ANK Bashneft) suggested introducing new equipment into technological processes. Within three years, the company plans to fully equip 11,000 wells with new instruments and sensors.
