In March of this year, Dragon reported that the LAM field feeder pipeline had become
blocked and that work was in progress to install an alternate flow system.
Dragon says that, following the successful installation and
commissioning of a new 8-inch pipeline bypassing the blocked pipeline,
production has been restored from all five wells on the LAM 22 platform.
The new 8-inch 21/2 kilometer pipeline connects the LAM 22 platform to the LAM
10 platform, thereby restoring production from LAM 22. The new pipeline was
installed in accordance with the planned schedule.
Hussain M. Sultan, Chairman of Dragon commented:
'I am very pleased that we have restored production from the LAM 22 platform in
such a short time. We have decided to upgrade our pipeline infrastructure
further to complement our capital expenditure program that includes the new
processing facility, platforms and upgrade of the marine export facility. This
supports our continuous drilling program which is necessary to increase
The LAM field is located in the Cheleken Contract Area offshore Turkmenistan.
