With 184 wells drilled at the field, the average daily production rate is 400,000 bbl, it said in a press release.

To manage the field's production, LUKOIL uses the intelligent field concept  which allows to control and adjust where necessary  the production indicators in real-time.

In 2018, the company started Phase 2 of the field's development which envisages  growth in daily production to 480,000 barrels in 2020 and to a plateau of 800,000 barrels per day in 2025. In January 2019, the drilling of 28 wells began on well pad #4.

As of today, contracts have been signed to drill 57 production wells, including 54 at the Mishrif and 3 at the Yamama formations.
