In the Caspian Sea in July this year at the fields named after V. Filanovsky was launched a new drilling mini-platform (block conductor). The work was carried out at the stage of implementation of the third phase of the project.
Recall that the license to develop the field belongs to LUKOIL.
Block-conductor - stationary type platform, resistant to ice. Designed for use at sea. The total weight of the structure is 2800 tons. The basis of its purpose is the collection of goods and subsequent supply on a technological platform.
New technological equipment will help to solve problems related to ensuring the continuous operation of oil and gas facilities, an increased level of safety, high environmental safety indicators, and high-performance work in general.
It’s noted that the slide mini-platform (block conductor) is the so-called installation method, which is not the field facility itself. It involves the pre-installation of permanent stable platforms that are connected horizontally with special devices. It moves in a horizontal line. It is noted that the working height at such sites can be adjusted.
