9,472 meters: China starts drilling ‘deepest oil well in Asia’

A Chinese oil company has launched drilling of Asia’s deepest oil well on the Tarim Basin in Norwest China’s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. The well, named Yuejin 3-3, is designed to be as deep as 9,472 meters, making it a significant breakthrough in ultra-deep oil and gas exploration that will boost the country’s crude oil production. Sinopec, the company undertaking the drilling, has improved drilling technologies to overcome extreme conditions of high temperature and high pressure at such a depth, which puts the country among the few nations in the world capable of drilling 10,000-meter-deep wells.
