Following a tender, Gazprom Neft has chosen Schlumberger to drill the first wells in the Badra oil deposit development project in Iraq. Upon signing the contract will last for three-years. On 9 June, Gazprom Neft, as the project operator, obtained approval to sign an agreement with Schlumberger from Iraq’s state-owned North Oil Company (NOC), part of the Iraqi Oil Ministry.

The contract with Schlumberger will involve three drilling rigs, with the drilling of the first appraisal and development wells expected to be completed in early 2012. A total of 11 wells are to be drilled over the three-year period, including one exploratory and three appraisal wells, which will later be converted into operating well stock.

“The commencement of drilling at the Badra oil deposit will be yet another important step in the implementation of this project. The formation of operating well stock will enable us to meet the primary objective of the consortium’s participants: to begin production at the oil deposit in 2013, as stipulated in the service agreement,” commented Boris Zilbermints, Deputy CEO for Exploration and Production.
