Karaturun Sea

Karaturun Sea oil and gas field located in the north-western part of the peninsula Buzachi and is part of the gulf coastal Komsomolets. Administratively located in the Mangistau region 277 km north of Aktau, 180 km from the main pipeline Uzen-Atyrau-Samara. 50 km to the south-west are Karazhanbas and North Buzachi and 30 km from the developed Kalamkas. Surrounding towns are villages: Akshimrau (100 km), Tuschekuduk (75 km) and Shebir (35 km) are associated with the city of Aktau asphalt road. 

Deep exploration drilling was carried out at the field in 1978 1987g.g. Drilling wells 17,18,21,22,23,30,31 will provide the necessary geological - geophysical data to assess its oil and gas and to prepare the data for the draft test operation. It should be emphasized challenging environment drilling applications in the field, the area is often subjected to transgression of the Caspian Sea. Therefore, before installing the pre-made arrangement burstankov sites for oil by Dumping gravel-pebble material. Particularly difficult in the operations were collecting and recycling of oil produced during well testing. Trial operation was not performed.

Status of wells on the date of counting inventory (RK SRC) of the deposit is as follows - all on the field Karaturun Sea drilled 7 (18,21,22,23,31,17,30) wells, of which two wells (18.21) are within the contour of oil and gas. 18.21 well preserved, the remaining 5 wells eliminated for geological reasons.

2001-2006 - collection and systematization of geological and geophysical data, data processing, GIS, data processing, 2D, a comprehensive analysis of geochemical and gravity of materials, technical project for the construction of wells, the drafting of trial operation, the preparatory work for the partial arrangement, recovery field roads, construction sites for drilling.

2007 - Drilling of 32 wells Karaturun Sea, project approval test operation

2008. - 32 test wells Karaturun Sea and start trial operation, well № 33, 34 (total yardage 2200m), the rehabilitation of access roads and sites for drilling, reprocessing and reinterpretation of 2D past by RAFE (LP "Geosayns technology" );

2009 - put into trial operation skv.34, skv.33 pending research. Conducted flow tests skv.32 and 34 (LP "GOES"). Selected samples from the deep skv.32 and 34 and sent for analysis (LP "GEOS", JSC "NIPIneftegas"). At CDC RK considered the report "Supervision of the project test run" (Minutes № 56 of CDC 09.04.2009g.).

2010 - In a well made 33 repairs associated with the water shutoff and perestrelom in the range 995-1000m. Well in anticipation of the development after the cattle. In skv.34 repaired associated with the return to the upper horizon S-III for further well start to work to supply the fishing gas wells awaiting development after cattle.

JSC "NIPIneftegas" Run Report "supervision over the implementation of the PES as of 01.10.2010.", The report considered at TSKRR Kazakhstan where a decision on the extension of the PES to the end-2012 (Minutes № 87 of 14.01.2011g. Working group to review and approval of project documents KGiN MINT RK according meetings TSKRR RK 13.12.2010g.).

 Drilled development well № 36 1080m depth, As 26.05.2011goda continuing trial operation skv.32, 33.36.According to the letter MNG RK № 14-05-9278 from 27.11.2010g. broadening and deepening the field contract area Karaturun Sea, are working to harmonize and complement the signing of the contract.
