It was discovered in 1983 at a distance of 22.5 km from the coast of Kaliningrad region.
The depth of the water is 25 m to 35 m.
LUKOIL’s 1st offshore field, the Kravtsovskoye (D-6) field, was put on stream in the Baltic in 2004.
The initial exploration drilling followed a geological survey by Lukoil-Kaliningradmorneft.
This confirmed that oil reserves of the C1 C2 categories at Kravtsovskoye were estimated to be 21.5 million t.
Recoverable reserves were put at 9.1 million t.
The development is being carried out from an offshore ice-resistant stationary complex manufactured at Kaliningradmorneft steelworks.
This is the 1st production platform in the Russian offshore sector to be designed and manufactured domestically.
It has been designed to resist 0.3 m-thick ice and survive 9 m storm waves.
The field was developed with 2 platforms which were installed by using a Stanislav Yudin crane vessel.
Produced oil & associated gas is transported by a 47-km underwater pipeline to the Romanovo oil-gathering unit.
Crude oil is exported through the Izhevsky oil terminal.
