To save and improve its production, Petróleos Mexicanos (Pemex) rehabilitates, reuses and relocates disused infrastructure.
Petroleos Mexicanos (Pemex) began a strategy of rehabilitation and relocation of disused infrastructure to save costs and improve its financial condition.
As part of this cost-saving strategy, the state production company began a program to reuse and relocate unused separation batteries, pears, and macropears.
This, in addition to saving infrastructure costs, has allowed Pemex to expedite the entry into production of its strategic wells.
According to Octavio Romero Oropeza, the company’s general director, the national oil company seeks to “reuse everything we have, all the infrastructure, machinery, equipment, many of which were abandoned, to make our developments more profitable.”
In a video, the official explained that the batteries, pears and macropears from Jujo and Tecominoacán, in Tabasco, were recovered, which, given the increase in production, help in the processing of crude oil.
“Until before this government, these batteries were practically useless. The amount of crude product they processed was minimal and, with the discovery of Quesqui We are returning to use the infrastructure that, if we did not have it, neither Jujo nor Tecominoacán would have had to make an investment of around 1.2 billion dollars,” said Romero Oropeza.
While in the Cárdenas Norte battery, it was recovered to be used in the production management of Tupilco Profundo, the same with the Pérdiz battery that is used in the production of the Ixachi field.
The official from the national oil company assured that they have also relocated equipment from other facilities that were also no longer in use, and that they have made it possible to optimize production because times have been shortened and costs have been reduced.
This year they will also rescue the pear located in Jalpa de Méndez, Tabasco, to develop the Tlaktok well, which has a 25% chance of success and is part of the early production strategy.
In the case of the latter, he specified that in said facility they will add 20 meters to the bottom and 10 lateral meters to start drilling the well, which has a prospective resource of 18 to 20 million barrels of crude oil equivalent.
