By Fakhri Vakilov - Trend:
ERIELL Group international oilfield services has successfully commissioned "No. 2 Bis" well of the Istmok field in the Mubarek region of Uzbekistan’s Kashkadarya region, Trend reports citing the company's statement.
The work was carried out jointly with Uzbekistan’s Uzbekneftegaz oil and gas company.
The company also completed the construction of a gas pipeline - a loop with a diameter of 108x6 mm and a length of 670 meters and a diameter of 114x9 mm and a length of 806 meters, respectively.
In early November, a 5.5-km gas pipeline was commissioned from the Istmok field to the SP-5 - Garbiy Szabo gas pipeline, which allowed the collection and transport of crude gas from 3 existing wells of the Istmok field.
These wells are connected to existing gas collection points at the Kuyi Surgil and Istmok fields, which will increase the supply of natural gas to Uzbekistan’s population, said the company's message.
Gas pipelines undergo a two-stage test: for strength and for tightness. Tests are carried out after the installation of valves, the installation of measuring instruments and equipment. The completed gas pipeline is subjected to hydraulic tests, i.e. pressure tests with compressed air.
Work to increase hydrocarbon production is carried out as part of the implementation of the "Program of measures to increase hydrocarbon production for 2017-2021", read the message.
