A new clean-out technology was used during drilling operations at the Buzuluk and Bogolyubov oilfields under development by OJSC Orenburgneft (a member of the TNK-BP structure) – in each case a viscoelastic fluid was pumped into the borehole. “A water-soluble container is placed in a drilling string before it is extended, then it dissolves and forms a viscous pad”, explains Konstantin Koulakov, head of the OJSC Orenburgneft well construction department. Based on this technology we perform preventive sludge level tests in the borehole and clean out bit cuttings”.
