"Oil of Russia" 07.02.2019 at 12:59

PJSC LUKOIL started the drilling of new wells in the West Qurna-2 field in the framework of the second phase of development. At the moment contracts have been signed for the drilling of 57 development wells, including 54 wells in the formation Mishrif and 3 wells in the Yamama formation. This will allow to increase production at West Qurna-2 from the current level of 400 thousand bbl./day to 480 in 2020.

During implementation of the project LUKOIL applies the new Iraq approach to well pad drilling, involving the installation of two drilling rigs on the same cluster site. This will significantly speed up the development of the field and will provide production growth in the shortest possible time.

When carrying out drilling operations will employ more than 500 Iraqi citizens living in the vicinity of the West Qurna-2.
