A new JV between EnerMech and Oil & Gas Proserv (OGP), an affiliated company of Nobel Energy Group in Azerbaijan, has secured its first two contracts in the region totalling US$3 million.
It is also expected to result in a recruitment drive later this year in line with the organisation’s ongoing commitment to local workforce employment and development to help actuate further business growth.
EnerMech is a global integrated mechanical, electrical, instrumentation and integrity services specialist, which also has facilities in the Caspian regions of Georgia and Kazakhstan. It has been operating in Azerbaijan for 12 years, steadily building up its presence and investment in employing and developing Azerbaijani nationals.
The new EnerMech OGP partnership will leverage EnerMech’s integrated supply, operations, maintenance and engineering solutions and specialisms alongside OGP’s local expertise, technologies and effective management for delivering enhanced oil recovery.
The first award is a US$2 million contract to deliver engineering, lube oil flushing, accumulator charging and N2 He leak testing, to support a significant development which includes a new offshore platform and facilities designed to process up to 100 000 bpd when it comes on-stream next year, and 300 million bbl in its lifetime.
The second is a US$1 million campaign to support the development of the Absheron gas-condensate field. Located offshore approximately 100 km south of Baku, it is estimated to contain 350 billion m3 of gas, along with more than 45 million t of condensate. The work scope for the partnership includes engineering, flange management, N2 He leak testing, drying and inserting of all topsides piping and vessels for this project.
OGP general director Eldar Maharramov said: “OGP was set up in Azerbaijan 17 years ago to bring new technologies, effective management and local expertise to the oil and gas industry. We are very pleased to be joining forces with EnerMech as this will effectively double our capacity and competences and increase the quality and efficiency of our services across new strategic campaigns. We look forward to working together to deliver these first two campaigns secured under the new JV, and the ongoing impact the partnership will have in supporting further employment locally.”
EnerMech’s regional director for Africa, Middle East & Caspian Paul Cockerill said: “Securing OGP as a JV partner has increased our capabilities with additional talent and technologies which complement our existing teams, services, and products. We will also be looking to recruit more Azerbaijani nationals as these two new projects get underway in the coming months.” Both campaigns are significant business wins and support our strategic growth in the region. We have also invested US$1million in new equipment to enhance our fleet. With this robust infrastructure in place, we look forward to building on our existing relationship with customers in the region and forging new bonds.”
