An 8,591-meter-deep well named Shunbei No. 10 in northwest China’s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region went through an open-flow test, proving its productivity on Tuesday. During the open-flow test, the air coming out of the inclined shaft was successfully ignited with orange flame. Located in the Taklamakan Desert, Shunbei No. 10 is part of the Shendi (Deep Earth) No.1 Shunbei Oil and Gas Field Base, a key oil and natural gas project launched by China’s energy and chemical giant Sinopec. 120 wells have been dug in the Taklamakan Desert at depths of over 8,000 meters, each with the purpose of searching for oil and gas buried several thousand meters below the desert surface as part of the “Deep Earth” project. #ChinaInspires #cgtn
