SPD drills wells for ASP EOR pilot project
MOSCOW -- Salym Petroleum Development N.V. (SPD) has completed the drilling of seven wells designed for its ASP pilot project.
ASP is an EOR method based on chemical formation flooding with a three component mixture (alkali, surfactant, and polymer). The technology has already been actively applied in the U.S., Canada, and China
Within the scope of this project, SPD will also construct an ASP pipeline and an ASP mixing unit in 2014.
“These wells are an evidence of the fact that SPD has progressed from preparatory work phase directly to project execution phase, the success of which will make it possible for us to practically demonstrate the advantages of the new technology and show that we can develop natural resources as reasonably as possible,” Mikhail Shuster, ASP Facilities Project Manager, noted.
