Lukoil awards Iraq contract to Baker Hughes
Houston, August 9, 2011
US-based Lukoil has awarded Baker Hughes, a major oilfield services company, a two-year contract to provide full drilling and completion services for 23 wells in the West Qurna field in southeast Iraq.
Under the terms of the contract, Baker Hughes will provide engineering and project management for the turnkey drilling and completions scope of the project.
Baker Hughes will supply drilling services, formation evaluation, casing and tubing running services, completion tools and services, wellbore intervention services, and wireline logging as well as perforation operations.
Baker Hughes also will contract all third-party services, equipment, personnel, tools and materials required for the project, including the provision of up to five drilling rigs and three workover rigs.
Some of the wells will be drilled directionally, targeting the Mishrif formation, with step outs of up to 3,000 metres (9,842 feet).
The wells are closely spaced, so the operation will employ a cluster (pad) drilling technique. The five drilling rigs and three workover rigs will be mounted on skids for fast, efficient rig moves, a statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
