The emerging problems of the long-term sustainability of the Russian oil industry, including Tatneft, in conditions of low world oil prices must be solved through more efficient use of costs, especially capital investments in the construction of new production wells. Along with various methods of increasing the oil recovery factor and intensification of oil production, one of the main ways to improve the profitability of wells is the construction of wells with horizontal end. Greater prospects for the use of horizontal wells are expected in the Timanian deposits of the Romashkino field. The use of a controlled valve (curtain) to open/close the inflow from the section of the horizontal trunk will significantly reduce the water cut of well and, accordingly, increase the share of oil per ton of produced liquid.
