Operations are underway for the Lukoil substructure installation on the mini offshore ice-resistant fixed wellhead platform at Vladimir Filanovsky field in the Caspian Sea, following successful transportation.

Built at the Galaktika shipyard in Astrakhan, the Lukoil substructure installation for the wellhead platform was transported to the site through the Volga-Caspian Shipping Canal.

Lukoil’s wholly owned subsidiary Lukoil-Nizhnevolzhskneft is currently building the topside for the wellhead platform at its construction and assembly yard.

The platform is part of the third stage of the field and will produce and gather crude oil, as well as supplying it to the central processing platform of the first stage of the field.

"Initial recoverable reserves of the Vladimir Filanovsky field, which was commissioned in 2016, amount to 129 million tonnes of crude oil and 30 billion cubic metres of gas."

It is implemented to develop the western part of the reservoir and maintain stable production plateau.

The company automated all operations of the facility and will commence the production of crude oil at the wellhead platform next year.

Initial recoverable reserves of the Vladimir Filanovsky field, which was commissioned in 2016, amount to 129 million tonnes of crude oil and 30 billion cubic metres of gas.

Last month, the Russian energy major completed drilling of the first Caspian Sea production well from the wellhead platform.

Located at the Yury Korchagin field, the well was drilled in the second field development stage implemented to involve the eastern part of the field into production.

Established in 1991, Lukoil exceeded 17 million tonnes of cumulative crude oil production at the Caspian fields of Lukoil. All offshore facilities of the company have been built at the Russian shipyard.
