Receiving the first commercial oil flow from the RC-8 rig at Dragon Field 30 days earlier than planned has contributed to increasing the oil production of Vietsovpetro in 2023.

In addition, the success of the project complex once again proves Vietsovpetro's EPCI capacity in the construction and installation of offshore oil and gas platforms, affirming the correct orientation of the two parties (Vietnam National Oil and Gas Group and Zarubezhneft Joint Stock Company) and Steering Committee of Vietsovpetro on strengthening the development of small and marginal fields in the exploration phase of Block 09-1, to maintain the oil and gas production output in the following years.
