In April, 2015 CDB Corall finished documentation development for marine operations concerning a derrick substructure (a drilling module) and a drilling derrick transfer onto the transportation barge, transportation along the Volga-Caspian Canal and water area of the Caspian Sea with further mounting of them onto LSP-1 ice-resistant platform that was earlier set on Filanovsky field.

The project was agreed with Marine Warranty Surveyor Noble Denton and approved by Russian Maritime Register of Shipping.

Marine operations concerning transportation and mounting of the drilling module and the derrick onto LSP-1 platform were successfully executed in August 2015.
