MOSCOW - Russian oil giant Lukoil has begun drilling new production wells in West Qurna II as part of a new development phase in southern Iraq.
"The company has signed with the Iraqi side so far contracts to dig 57 wells productive, including 54 wells in the formation of Musharraf and three wells in the formation of Yamamah," the Russian company said on its website.
"The drilling campaign aims to increase production in West Qurna 2 from the current level of 400 thousand barrels per day to 480 thousand barrels per day in 2020," she said.
"The company has used a new method that is used for the first time in Iraq is the cluster drilling, which envisages the construction of two wells in the platform of one well, and this will greatly facilitate the development of fields and production growth in the shortest possible time."
