BP Exploration (Shah Deniz) Ltd. has let a contract to KBR for the engineering and procurement support services for the Shah Deniz stage 2 project in the Azerbaijan section of the Caspian Sea.
Earlier this month, the project’s consortium partners made a final investment decision for the stage 2 development of the field (OGJ Online, Dec. 17, 2013).
KBR will provide engineering design and procurement support services for an offshore complex consisting of two bridge-linked fixed jacket platforms as well as an onshore gas processing facility. The onshore facility consists of two gas processing trains, each with 900 MMscfd capacity, and condensate processing facilities with about 105 million b/d capacity adjacent to the existing Shah Deniz stage 1 facilities at Sangachal terminal. This work will start in January and run through to 2018.
