Lukoil commissions Imilorskoye field in West Siberia

OAO Lukoil reported commissioning of Imilorskoye field in western Siberia.

At a ceremony today, Lukoil Pres. Vagit Alekperov said the field was commissioned nearly 6 months prior to the scheduled deadline.

Production drilling began in February (OGJ Online, Feb. 25, 2014). Construction in the Imilorsko-Istochny license block has included pipelines, access roads, power lines, four well pads, a booster pump station, and a 74-m bridge across the Enti-Imiyagun River.

Lukoil’s plans for the license area include additional seismic surveys, the retesting of 20 previous exploration wells, and the drilling of 11 exploration wells.

Citing economic growth, Natalya Komarova, governor of the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous District-Yugra, said, “What we need is more fields like Imilor to be put on stream.”
