A major breakthrough! Oil and gas wells with a daily output of 1,000 tons in Shunbei oil and gas field in Tarim Basin
Good news for oil and gas exploration and development. On March 15, the reporter learned from Sinopec that Sinopec Northwest Oilfield Branch deployed the key exploration well Shunbei 42X in the Shunbei Oil and Gas Field in the Tarim Basin. Major breakthrough in fault zone exploration.
Well Shunbei 42X was drilled to a depth of 7,996 meters, and Sinopec Petroleum Engineering Company provided drilling and construction services. Through the test, the daily output of natural gas is 822,000 cubic meters, crude oil is 300 tons, and the oil and gas equivalent is nearly 1,000 tons. The resource pattern shows a good prospect for exploration.
The Shunbei oil and gas field has the characteristics of ultra-deep, ultra-high pressure and ultra-high temperature. The average burial depth of the reservoir exceeds 7,300 meters, making it one of the deepest buried oil and gas reservoirs in the world. In August 2016, Sinopec announced that it had made a major commercial discovery in the exploration of the Shunbei oil and gas field, which has become a new bright spot in the exploration of the Tarim Basin in the past decade. In recent years, Sinopec has continued to deepen basic research and practical exploration, and initially formed the theory and key technologies of oil and gas accumulation in Shunbei ultra-deep fault-controlled reservoirs, and made breakthroughs and discoveries of oil and gas in many wells. production capacity.
The Northwest Oilfield Branch, which conducts exploration and development in this area, is an important position for Sinopec to increase reserves and increase production. Tahe Oilfield and Shunbei Oil and Gas Field have been discovered successively in the Tarim Basin of Xinjiang. Among them, Tahe Oilfield is my country's first Paleozoic marine 100 million-ton oilfield. Up to now, the Northwest Oilfield Branch has a cumulative proven oil geological reserve of 1.5 billion tons, natural gas geological reserves of 74 billion cubic meters, and a cumulative oil and gas equivalent output of over 140 million tons, making it one of the top ten oilfields in China. In 2020, the company produced 6.7 million tons of crude oil and 1.91 billion cubic meters of natural gas.
According to foreign media reports on the 26th, due to the reduction of energy supply by Russia, energy prices in EU countries such as France are currently soaring. On the 26th, major French energy companies, including EDF, Angers Group and Total, published a joint open letter in the French "Sunday" published on the same day, calling on the people and enterprises in the country to "immediately reduce" their concerns about natural gas, electricity and natural gas. Use of petroleum products.
According to news from the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) on June 24, its new report "Global Crude Oil Remaining Capacity" shows that in May 2022, due to the decline in the remaining capacity of OPEC and non-OPEC countries, the global crude oil remaining capacity Less than half the 2021 average.
On June 28, local time, Iranian Oil Minister Uchi posted on social media that the turmoil in the global energy market is jeopardizing energy security and causing worrying consequences for all importers in this field, especially in the coming days. winter.
French official local time on the 27th called on oil-producing countries to increase oil production, and expressed hope that Iran and Venezuela would return to the international oil market to curb soaring oil prices due to the conflict between Russia and Ukraine.
Libya's National Oil Company said Libyan authorities may block exports from Sirte Gulf for the next three days as the political crisis worsens. Es Sider, Ras Lanuf, Brega and Zueitina along the Sirte Gulf are all major ports for oil exports.
