EXPRO to restart of Shah Deniz operations soon
BAKU, Azerbaijan, Sept.15
By Leman Zeynalova – Trend:
UK EXPRO international oilfield service company is going to restart operations at Azerbaijan’s Shah Deniz gas and condensate field soon, the company told Trend.
“EXPRO is currently completing the maintenance of the equipment for the restart of Shah Deniz operations in Q4 2020,” said the company.
EXPRO has had a presence in the Caspian region since 2007, when it was awarded a contract to supply completion landing strings for Azerbaijan's Azeri-Chirag-Gunashli block of fields.
In 2014, EXPRO was awarded the contract to build landing strings for Azerbaijan's Shah Deniz Stage 2. These are designed to ensure the highest standards of safety and reliability for the most challenging deepwater market conditions.
In November 2018, EXPRO won a four-year contract extension for BP’s Shah Deniz Stage 2 project.
The Shah Deniz Stage 2 project is set to bring gas directly from Azerbaijan to Europe for the first time, opening up the Southern Gas Corridor.
In total 16 billion cubic meters a year of Shah Deniz Stage 2 gas will be delivered through more than 3500 kilometers of pipelines through Azerbaijan, Georgia, Turkey, Greece, Bulgaria, Albania and under the Adriatic Sea to Italy.
