Baku, Azerbaijan, Jan. 13
By Maksim Tsurkov – Trend:
Azerbaijan’s state oil company SOCAR is constructing the 2A gas-gathering station at the Bulla Deniz offshore gas field, said a message from SOCAR.
The message said the station, which is being built in order to gather hydrocarbons extracted at the field and their further transportation to the shore, will be established on a separate base, the construction of which also continues.
Oil, gas and condensate produced at the Bulla Deniz field will be transported from the 2A gas-gathering station to the shore, and for this an underwater pipeline network with a length of 22,174 kilometers will be laid.
The work has also been carried out to replace the 8-kilometer gas lines.
Operation of the Bulla Deniz field started in 1975. More than 62 billion cubic meters of gas and 12 million tons of oil and gas condensate have been produced at the field since then.
SOCAR includes such production associations as Azneft (the enterprises producing oil and gas onshore and offshore), Azerikimya (the chemical enterprises) and Azerigas (distributor of the gas produced in the country), as well as oil and gas processing plants, service companies, and the facilities involved in geophysical and drilling operations.
