As part of the production sharing agreement regarding the Uzbekiston Mustakilligi investment block, the Surhan Gas Chemical Operating Company started the drilling of an appraisal well on the Mustakillikning 25 yilligi production field in order to confirm the hydrocarbon reserves.
Currently, reserves at the Mustakillikning 25 yilligi production field and Uzbekiston Mustakilligi investment block are estimated at more than 100B cu m of natural gas.
The international drilling company ERIELL, which has great experience of project implementation in Central Asia, Russian Federation and the Middle East, was engaged as drilling contractor for the project’s implementation. To drill the well, a unique installation was constructed with high carrying capacity for operation in the challenging geological conditions of sulfurous aggression and abnormal terrastatic pressure and temperature. Service maintenance in the project is provided by leading international servicing contractors: Baker Hughes, Halliburton and NOV.
In addition to the drilling of an appraisal well, the Mustakillikning 25 yilligi production field is currently under ecological audit of the contract scope for the whole block. Cooperation with international consultants in market research, conceptual design and reserves auditing has also begun.
The project’s implementation will make a great contribution to the national economy and society, in that it would create new jobs, drive modern production process technologies, and also provide a big impulse both to development of the region in which it is implemented and the whole gas and chemical industry of the Republic of Uzbekistan.
