Lukoil starts commercial oil production from Filanovsky field

PJSC Lukoil has started commercial oil production from Vladimir Filanovsky field in the Caspian Sea off Russia.

Two horizontal wells are producing a total of more than 45,000 b/d, and a third production well is being drilled.

The field is about 220 km from the city of Astrakhan. Water depth ranges 7-11 m.

Lukoil discovered the field in 2005 (OGJ Online, Jan. 26, 2006). First-stage development has included construction of an ice-resistant stationary platform, a living quarters platform, the central treatment platform, the riser unit, onshore storage facilities, and subsea and onshore pipelines.

The second stage of field development is under way, including a second ice-resistant platform and a living quarters platform (OGJ Online, Dec. 20, 2013).

Filanovsky infrastructure is also used for transportation of hydrocarbons from Yuri Korchagin field, which was commissioned in 2010.
