SOCAR plans to set up gas production from Gunashli 19 platform
In the first quarter of 2006 Azneft Production Association on Oil and Gas Production intends to put into exploitation gas wells drilled on Gunashli-19 field, the SOCAR told Trend.
The preparatory work is entirely complete. In favorable weather conditions the gas pipelines to deliver gas to gas compression stations on Oil Rocks and onwards to the coast will be connected to the platform.
SOCAR spudded three gas wells fro the platform. The depth of the well is 3,700 3,800 meters. Daily debit of the wells is approximately 350,000 cu m each.
The commencement of gas transportation was scheduled for early 2005, while it was rejected due to technical problems.
