Anton's Great Milestone of Fracturing in Iraq -------Anton's fracturing operation sets a new record
"Ok, stopping pumping."
At 3:20 p.m. local time on January 4, 2022 in Iraq, as the commander of HFXX well gave the order of stopping pumping, the whole well site suddenly became quiet, and then everyone was swept up in the mood of exaltation.
Fifteen stages pumping job have been completed successfully within 8 days' hard work of Antonoil's fracturing team. The number of stages, length of horizontal section, proppant concentration and other indicators set new records for fracturing operations in Iraq.
The standardized operation, fine management, high-efficiency operation and high-quality delivery are the most powerful explanation for the hard work of Antonoil team. Once again, Antonoil’s fracturing team has reached new heights and won our customers' praise and expectations. We are looking forward to further achievements in our future operations.
Behind the perfect delivery is the hard work of the fracturing team. Due to the epidemic situation, the drilling plan of the HFXX well, initially scheduled for April 2021, has been repeatedly delayed. Finally, the well was spudded in September 2021. The fracturing project team of Antonoil responded quickly and organized technical forces for project analysis, design discussion and engineering optimization. The engineer directly communicated with RIPED to discuss the fracturing scale, stages, liquid formula and pumping parameters. After many refinements, the final fracturing design was determined; The liquid engineer repeated the tests for different liquid proportions according to different water quality, and selected the optimal ratio and two other alternatives. All members of the project department maintained the fracturing unit comprehensively to ensure that the equipment can be used reliably. The fracturing headquarters selected experts for on-site supervision and technical experts for remote real-time support to ensure the smooth implementation of fracturing operations.
On December 21, 2021, the main fracturing equipment officially entered the well site. During the equipment entry, the project department held several meetings to make detailed arrangements on site layout, equipment placement, job procedure, division of personnel, epidemic prevention,and security measures to ensure that everyone was at the best post.
On December 27, 2021, after the technical disclosure to the clients and supervisors, all posts standby to wait for operation. As the operation instructions are issued, the roar of the fracturing unit immediately rings out, and the tense and orderly fracturing operation was officially launched.
One day, two days, three days…
Two stages, four stages, six stages...
The team prepared all the work step by step. The department summarized and commented all the work every day and adjusted the working time in real-time to ensure that the operation schedule could not be delayed. As the fracturing work continued to advance, the person on location were always on high alert to strictly control the construction quality. At last, the fracturing operation was successfully completed, and it made a massive contribution to the stimulation of the project.
Anton Iraqi Fracturing Team focuses on the overall situation, starts from the details, always adheres to the service concept of customer-centric, pays attention to customer requirement, gives full play to its own resources and technical advantages, continuously strengthens the basic skills, improves the services ability, and builds the best fracturing team in Iraq. Since the completion of the first fracturing operation in Iraq in 2016, Antonoil completed 16 Wells through the pursuance of perfect operation. The maximum production of horizontal wells is 2172 barrels per day, which has contributed significantly to maximizing the client's reservoir asset value.
Since the completion of the first shale gas fracturing well in China in 2010, Anton has been continuously enhanced stimulation technology services capacity, formed a full range of service capabilities including reservoir geology research, fracturing design, equipment service, stimulation chemistry, downhole tools. Anton has more than 100,000 HHP fracturing equipment and can mobilize more than 400,000 HHP of resources. The operation area mainly has covered the region of China, Iraq, Pakistan, Kazakhstan, etc. Besides sufficient equipment, Anton fracturing has achieved comprehensive technical coverage, covering various oil and gas fields such as tight sandstone gas, shale gas and coalbed methane stimulation. Anton has the qualifications of Petrochina and Sinopec with successful operation experiences of more than 3,000 Wells with more than 6000 stages.
