Drilling has since started on the sixth well which will be dedicated to water injection.
The recently completed well is of a bilateral horizontal design. Horizontal length of the main bore is 1,429 m (4,688 ft), while the side track is 1,612 m (5,289 ft) long.
According to Lukoil, the well has sharply increased output from the field, with more than 14,000 tons produced on June 13, or 5 MM tons/yr.
Phase 2 work continues, with the topsides recently placed on the pre-installed substructure of the offshoreice-resistant fixed platform (IRP-2). The next step will be the transportation of the living quarters platform (LQP-2) topsides from the shore to the field complex.
