The start of commercial oil production from the Valery Grayfer field is planned for 2022, at the design rate of 1.2 million tpy.
The company is also continuing the development of the V. Filanovsky and Yury Korchagin fields, with the accumulated production from these projects approaching to 30 million t.
The production on the V. Filanovsky field involves three phases of facilities, including a wellhead platform with minimal involvement of personnel.
The drilling of single-bore horizontal gas injection well #102 has been completed on the ice-resistant fixed platform.
Drilling is in progress on phase 2 facilities of the Yury Korchagin field to unlock reserves in the eastern part of the field as well as additional drilling on phase 1 facilities of the project. The first producing well reaching the Callovian deposits was drilled from the ice-resistant fixed platform, which has an intelligent completion system and a vertical depth of up to 1985 m.
