ASTRAKHAN, Russia – LUKOIL says transportation has started of the topsides for the riser block to the Vladimir Filanovsky field development in the Russian sector of the Caspian Sea.

The riser block is designed to connect the interfield and external pipelines to transport oil and gas from the field.

Support structures for all four platforms were assembled at the offshore site last year, while the topside sections of the central processing platform and the living quarter module were transported to the field earlier this year.
