Care, Concern & Commitment
In the Russian Federation, batch drilling uses an assembly-line approach to drill multiple wells on a single pad. With multi-well pad drilling, the environmental footprint of LLC NPO Tyumen Geotech operations is reduced by drilling two to four wells on a single well pad. Air emissions are reduced by not transporting 30 to 40 truckloads each time a new well is drilled. Batch drilling also reduces manual-handling activities associated with switching out equipment. For example, instead of replacing the bottom-hole assembly (BHA) for the first string three times, the same BHA can be used for each subsequent well before changing equipment for the second string. Since the drilling mud is switched out once versus four times for each string, this reduces the risk of an unintended spill.
All efforts are captured in an Environmental Impact Matrix. At the top of the matrix is noise. LLC NPO Tyumen Geotech hired a third-party company to measure noise inside the location where the rigs are operating, creating a ‘noise map’ that helps determine if the rig is in compliance with regulations, or if additional measures should be implemented, such as installing screens or enclosing equipment to reduce noise and stress on the bird denizens. The matrix also keeps track of LLC NPO Tyumen Geotech monitoring of emissions, treated water discharge and hazardous waste disposal.
