Vietnam-Russia oil and gas joint venture Vietsovpetro on November 24 held an online ceremony to welcome the first flow of oil extracted from  BK-18A and BK-19 oil rigs.

The event marked the 40th founding anniversary of Vietsovpetro and the 60th anniversary of the traditional day of the Vietnam oil and gas industry (November 27, 1961 – November 27, 2021).

Addressing the ceremony, Vietsovpetro Deputy General Director Vu Mai Khanh said new generation unmanned mini oil rigs BK-18A and other internal connection projects are constructed in Bach Ho oil field in Lot 09-1 in Vietnam’s continental shelf, about 125km southeast of Vung Tau city.

BK-18A was designed and constructed by Vietsovpetro to exploit oil and gas from six wells with a total capacity of 1,360 tones.

BK-19 was built and put into use to maintain the total oil production of Vietsovpetro at 3 million tones as set by the 2021 plan.

The complicated developments of the COVID-19 pandemic has caused difficulties for the construction of the BK-18A and BK-19 oil rigs. However, Vietsovpetro has carried out a series of solutions, including reviewing the overall construction stages for the whole project and adopting three-on-site model. Thus, the projects have met the desired quality and were completed 48 days ahead of schedule.
