LONDON – Petrofac and Azeri state oil company SOCAR have won a 12-month engineering and technical services contract to support Total and SOCAR’s E&P activities in the Caspian Sea offshore Azerbaijan.
The program concerns the Absheron gas field, discovered in 2011, 100 km (62 mi) south of Baku, in which Total and SOCAR and Total each have a 50% interest.
Earlier this year the semisub Heydar Aliyev successfully completed drilling of a first well.
