- Comments Off on The international round table problems of developing Cretaceous deposits of high-viscosity oils of East Moldabek site of Kenbai field has started in KMG Engineering.
Representatives from research institutes, universities, businesses, scientists, and entrepreneurs involved in the development and operation of high-viscosity oil fields in Kazakhstan and abroad were the participants.
The main purpose of the round table is to find effective technologies for developing high-viscosity oils and assess the applicability of technologies in the conditions of the East Moldabek site of Kenbai field.
“The main issues we plan to discuss today are the geological structure, current state, and problems of development of Cretaceous deposits at the Moldabek site of the Kenbai field, as well as the experience of using thermal, chemical, and other methods of development and operation of high-viscosity oil fields. And we will implement all proposals from the participants in our daily activities,” the organizers of the meeting said.
Note that the East Moldabek site of Kenbai field has a complex geological and physical structure of pay zones, gas-oil and water-oil zones, semi-consolidated reservoir, low initial reservoir pressure and high oil viscosity under reservoir conditions, abundant ingress of sand. “All of this has an impact on the low rate of oil extraction and the low degree of oil recovery from the subsurface. The well operation findings of the Cretaceous objects, which contain the majority of the field’s oil reserves, demonstrate the poor efficiency of conventional impact methods. In this regard, we need to use technologies on a new fundamental basis to increase the efficiency of developing these facilities, and we plan to discuss this in detail during our meeting today. We, as a national engineering company, highly value the opinion of each participant,” Bakhytzhan Khassanov, General Director of KMG Engineering, pointed out in his welcome address.
