    RN-Yuganskneftegaz: Drilled a Record Longest Horizontal Well

    Experts from RN-Yuganskneftegaz, the largest production asset of Rosneft, drilled the longest horizontal well among the Company’s onshore drilling operations. The depth of the well was 6196 meters, and the length of the horizontal section was 3034 meters.

    The well was drilled at well pad No. 600 of the Priobskoye field with the participation of specialists from RN-Drilling and Intelligent Systems (part of Rosneft).

    While drilling the well, modern technologies and high-tech equipment were used. In particular, the horizontal section was drilled using a rotary steerable system and oil-based mud.

    Logging equipment was used to provide real-time geological support and efficient well placement in the reservoir. For the purpose of efficient development of the productive formation, equipment for a 30-stage hydraulic fracturing was installed in the well.
