Lukoil Starts V. Filanovsky Field Flows

Commercial production at the Vladimir Filanovsky field in the Caspian Sea was launched on Monday by the president of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin. 

The V. Filanovsky field, discovered by Lukoil in 2005, is Russia’s largest oil discovery for the past twenty-five years and the second field commissioned by the company in the Russian offshore sector of the Caspian Sea. The field’s С1+С2 recoverable reserves under the Russian classification are estimated at 129 million tons of crude oil and 30 billion cubic meters of gas. The annual oil production at the plateau is estimated at 6 million tons.

Two horizontal production wells have been drilled to date, yielding a total daily flow rate of over 6 thousand tons (45 thousand barrels) of oil. Construction of a third well is underway. The sweet light crude oil lifted from the wells is transported via a subsea pipeline to the onshore storage facilities and subsequently fed into the Caspian Pipeline Consortium system for further exports.

The associated petroleum gas is transported to the gas processing unit at Stavrolen plant for further conversion into petrochemical products and supply to Lukoil’s power generating capacities, as well as Gazprom’s Unified Gas Supply System.

The following facilities have been built within the first stage of the field development: the ice-resistant stationary platform-1, living quarters platform-1, the central treatment platform, the riser unit, the onshore storages, and the subsea and onshore oil and gas pipeline system with a total length of over 650 km.

The second stage of the field development is underway including construction of the ice-resistant stationary platform-2) and the living quarters platform-2.

The Vladimir Filanovsky field is located in the northern Caspian Sea, 220 km away from the city of Astrakhan. Water depth in the field’s area ranges from 7 to 11 meters.
