VIDEO: Lukoil Completes Installation of V. Filanovsky Platforms’ Substructures
Lukoil, a privately held oil giant from Russia, has completed installation of the mounting substructures for the four offshore platforms at the Vladimir Filanovsky oil field in the Caspian Sea.
In 2014 the company will build on them the topside facilities of the producing platform, the living quarters, the processing platform and the riser block as well as a number of catwalk bridges to connect the platforms.
The company last month week signed a contract for transportation and installation of production facilities as part of the infrastructure development at the Vladimir Filanovsky field.
The agreement provides for transportation and installation of an ice-resistant fixed platform (IRFP-1), a central processing platform (CPP), riser block platforms (RB) and a living quarters module (LQM-1), all connected via catwalk bridges.
The IRFP-1 is designed for the drilling and operation of wells, the CPP is designed for the processing and piping ashore of oil and associated gas, the RB is designed to connect infield pipelines with export pipelines, while the LQM-1 is designed to accommodate up to 125 persons.
The operations will be conducted during the periods from March to September of 2013 and 2014.
