BAKU, Azerbaijan, Aug.20
By Leman Zeynalova – Trend:
The maximum production potential of Umid-1 platform at Azerbaijan’s Umid gas and condensate field has increased to 6.7 million cubic meters of gas and 950 tons of condensate, Trend reports with reference to Azerbaijan’s state oil company SOCAR.
The increase was achieved as a result of commissioning the well #18 with record figures.
Umid field was discovered by SOCAR in 2010. Risk Service Contract for this block was signed in early 2017. The field is located in 75 kilometers from Baku and in 40 kilometers from the shore.
The reserves of Umid field are estimated at 200 million cubic meters. It is planned to build and install a platform at Umid field (Umid 2) and conduct exploratory drilling in the nearest Babek structure. Dashgil 2 terminal with capacity of 24 million cubic meters per day is under construction for initial gas and condensate processing. The product will be transported via the underwater pipeline of the terminal. Construction of the terminal has been going on since September 2019.
