HA NOI (VNS) — Vietsovpetro, a joint Vietnamese-Russian enterprise for oil and gas exploration, aims to complete the installation of the Tho Trang 01 (White Rabbit 01) oil rig at the beginning of July, 15 days ahead of schedule.

The Trade Union of the Vietsovpetro joint venture launched a contest on May 11 in southern Ba Ria – Vung Tau province to get the platform operating earlier.

Located 7.5km from the Bach Ho (White Tiger) oil field to the northeast in lot 09-1, the 3,200-tonne platform is expected to yield 700,000 tonnes of oil per day. The output would help the joint venture fulfill its plan to tap 5.4 million tonnes of oil this year.

From 2006 until 2012, Vietsovpetro has successfully put into operation eight new generation oil rigs.

Tho Trang 01 is the newest of its kind, completely designed and installed by Vietsovpetro.-VNS
