Hanoi (VNA) - The Vietnam-Russia oil and gas joint venture (Vietsovpetro) has successfully launched the base of the BK-21 oil rig at Bach Ho field.

The base was completed and put into operation 16 days ahead of schedule.

BK-21 rig is an uninhabited wellhead platform located near the MSP6 and MSP7 fixed platforms. Products exploited from BK21 will be transported to MSP6 by underground pipeline.

The base structure of BK 21 was designed with a docking station, a temporary drilling platform, pipelines, and superstructure blocks.

Manufacturing, installing, commissioning, and putting the BK-21 platform into operation is an important milestone in increasing oil and gas production and ensuring the completion of Vietsovpetro’s production plan in 2020./.
