Lukoil produced its first million tons of oil at Caspian Filanovsky oilfield, the company´s official press-release states.
Having already commissioned three horizontal sidetracked wells, the company is now constructing the fourth one. Alongside, facilities of the field’s second phase of development are being built: an offshore ice-resistant fixed platform (IRP-2) and a living quarter platform (LQP-2). The substructures were taken to the sea and installed at prescribed points. The annual planned production level is estimated at 6 million tons of oil.
