Lukoil starts drilling second Filanovsky dual-lateral
Lukoil has completed drilling the fourth development well at the V.Filanovsky field in the Russian sector of the Caspian Sea.
The length of the horizontal section is 1,194 m (3,917 ft) for the main bore and 1,366 m (4,481 ft) for the lateral.
Lukoil says the dual-lateral design provides for higher productivity compared with the earlier completed single-bore wells.
After performing all the necessary tests, the well will be put into operation. Drilling has now started on the fifth well, also of dual-lateral design.
