BOLOGNA, Italy – The Azeri branch of Geological Assistance & Surveys (GAS) will perform survey and positioning support activities for the Chirag oil project.
The job was awarded by Saipem in a frame agreement for the provision of survey services in Azerbaijan until the end of 2017.
The scope of work includes the laying of 8.33 km (5.17 mi) of the 18-in. water injection pipeline and the installation of tie-in spools in the Chirag and Gunashli fields, part of the Azeri-Chirag-Deepwater Guneshli (ACG) project.
ACG is located in the Azerbaijan sector of the Caspian Sea, approximately 120 km (75 mi) southeast of Baku.
GAS said the project will begin in March and will last around four months. During that time, it will carry out pipelay support, prelay survey, as-laid survey, as-built survey, and spools metrology.
ACG is operated by BP on behalf of the Azerbaijan International Operating Co. First oil from the platform was achieved in January 2014. Total ACG production during the first nine months of 2015 was around 175 MMbbl, according to BP.
