The drilling works on Absheron ABD-001 well have been completed in November 2019 and it is the longest well (7411 m) drilled in the Caspian Sea, JOCAP, the Joint Operating company of the Absheron field on behalf of Contractor Parties SOCAR Absheron and TOTAL E&P Absheron BV, told Trend.
“The on-going works will connect the well through a 34 km insulated 12” line to a dedicated receiving platform in the vicinity of Oil Rocks facilities. Gas and liquids will be separated on the platform and further streamed to Oil Rocks facilities for further processing and export,” said the company.
These operations are part of the Absheron Early Production Scheme (EPS), the first stage of the Absheron field development, according to JOCAP.

In conducting operations at the Absheron field, JOCAP has a set of key priorities, such as, achieving a high level of operational safety and minimal environmental impact, contribute to meet the sustainable development goals, optimizing and maximizing production in a sustainable way, with a high level of availability and lower OPEX as reasonably possible.”
