LUKOIL has completed construction of the first well as part of Phase 3 of the development of the V. Filanovsky field in the Caspian Sea. The well was drilled with a floating jack-up rig Neptune, mounted on a riser block platform.

The newly constructed well has two bores and features TAML level 5 intelligent completion system. The drill depth of the main bore is 3235 m. The bottom of the side track is 3261 m deep. Planned daily flow rate of oil is 1838 t.

Produced oil is delivered to the Phase 1 central processing platform via a subsea pipeline. Phase 3, intended to maintain annual oil production at the planned production level of 6 million t of oil, will integrate western part of the V. Filanovsky field in the development. Operation of the riser block platform is almost automatic and requires minimum involvement of the personnel.

Continuing operational drilling at Phase 1, the company has sidetracked two existing wells.
