Astrakhan, December 23 - Neftegaz.RU. LUKOIL's oil production at its Caspian Vladimir Filanovsky field exceeded 30 million tonnes.
In 2021, the field saw 5 development wells built (including 4 production wells and 1 injection well) to maintain the plateau level of 6 million tonnes of oil per year.

The V. Filanovsky field, discovered in 2005, is the largest oil field in the Russian sector of the Caspian Sea bed.
The field has a unique geology, with highly permeable collectors yielding record-high initial flow rates which are multiple higher than the initial flow rates of the company’s other new wells in average.
The field produces high-quality light low sulphur oil.

The company also completed the 2nd stage of development of the Yury Korchagin field (the wellhead platform) and constructed 8 development wells there.

​LUKOIL continues development of its 3rd Caspian field – the Valery Grayfer field.
Shipyards of the city of Astrakhan, Russia, keep building topside facilities for the fixed ice-resistant platform and accommodation block.

In 2021, they were lifted, weighed, and moved to the quay.
A drilling rig was installed at the ice-resistant platform.

The facilities are scheduled to be put to sea in the 2nd quarter of 2022.
A unique float-over technology will be used.
It will allow to install topside facilities on the platform jacket without employing floating crane.​
