LUKOIL finished most of the construction works at Vladimir Filanovsky field's Phase 2 development facilities and started drilling of the first production well. The drilling is planned to be completed in early 2018.
The Phase 2 facilities will allow to reach the stable designed production plateau of 6 million tonnes per year at the field.
As of today, there are six production and two injection wells operating at the Phase 1 facilities. The cumulative production from the field has surpassed 5 million tonnes of oil.
The field is being developed in the three phases.
Phase 1 facilities were commissioned in 2016 and include a fixed ice resistant platform, an accommodation block platform, a riser block and a central processing platform. Eight wells were drilled at the Phase 1.
Phase 2 facilities include a fixed ice resistant platform and an accommodation block platform.
The construction of the wellhead platform (mini platform), field's Phase 3 development, started in 2017.
All of the offshore facilities installed at LUKOIL's Caspian Sea fields were manufactured by the Russian shipyards.
