LUKOIL pioneered the development of the Russian sector of the Caspian Sea bottom. The company’s effort resulted in the discovery of ten fields with total initial recoverable reserves of approximately seven billion barrels of oil equivalent. LUKOIL’s fields in the north of the Caspian Sea share a single infrastructure to treat and ship the yield. All the facilities were built at Russian shipyards. Production operations comply with the zero discharge principle, which guarantees a safe ecosystem as all household and industrial wastes are transported off sites for recycling or utilization at onshore facilities.
