Lukoil partners with Aramco to drill for tight gas in Empty Quarter

: Saturday, May 17 - 2014 @ 02:31

Russia’s Lukoil is set to drill deep for unconventional gas in Saudi Arabia’s challenging “Empty Quarter” desert region early next year after a decade-long hunt for conventional deposits that has proved futile, Reuters has reported, citing two industry sources. Lukoil plans, with Saudi Aramco, to drill two very deep evaluation wells at depths of up to 19,000 ft in the Mushaib tight gas field in the Empty Quarter. A Lukoil Overseas official said the joint venture would drill the first well in the first quarter of 2015 and the second during the last six months.
