PJSC LUKOIL completed the construction of the second production well from the wellhead platform at the Yury Korchagin field in the Caspian Sea.
The single-bore well with horizontal completion was drilled from a jack-up rig. The measured depth of the well is 3,736 meters. The well’s initial flow rate is approximately 600 tonnes of crude oil per day. LUKOIL has already started drilling of the third production well at the Eastern part of the field.
LUKOIL’s electro-hydraulic intelligent completion system was used for the first time at the new well. The system allows controlling the valves of the horizontal wellbore in real-time, providing for an optimized oil influx and higher operational safety.
