EnerMech has secured contracts with major operators in the Caspian region. The contracts are reportedly valued at over £40 million and involve a number of EnerMech’s service lines, including cranes and lifting, process, pipelines and umbilicals, valves, training and industrial services.
One of the contracts awarded to the company will see EnerMech managing all of BP Exploration (Caspian Sea) Ltd’s crane operations, maintenance and inspection requirements in Azerbaijan. This three year contract covers assets that are spread across seven platforms (including 12 offshore pedestal cranes). As a result of this deal, EnerMech will increase its Azerbaijani workforce from its current level of 80% to 100% within a three month period.
In addition, the ATA consortium in Azerbaijan has commissioned EnerMech to provide a full range of hydrotesting, flange management, camera inspection and enhanced water blasting services on two platforms, which are part of the Shah Deniz 2 gas condensate field. A separate project will see EnerMech provide ultra-high pressure tubing installation, pressure testing and flushing of tubing for the first time. The company will use experienced supervisors from the UK and Asia to train and assist local pipe fitters on the project.
Also at the ATA site, EnerMech has been awarded its first direct contract with BP for the provision of nitrogen/helium leak detection and pre-engineering is ongoing in London.
EnerMech has invested over £1.5 million in new equipment to service a first award at the Sangachal terminal, where it has been commissioned by Turkish contractor Tekfen to provide enhanced high pressure water jetting and flange management over a two year period.
The company has also been commissioned by BOS Shelf to provide all jacket riser testing, subsea safety isolation valves and subsea spool testing and will also carry out hydro testing, riser pigging and bolt tensioning work.
John Guy, EnerMech’s regional director for the Middle East, Asia and Caspian, said: “This has by far been our most successful period in the Caspian region and the groundwork we have put in over the last five years is now paying dividends. The extension of the BP cranes and lifting contract is an important development and our commitment to Azerbaijan has been underlined by our move towards a 100% Azeri project team.”
