Amec and its partners in the Amec-Tekfen-Azfen (ATA) consortium watched the Azerbaijan International Oil Co.'s compression, water injection, and power (CWP) topsides set sail for the Central Azeri field July 7. The CWP was built over the course of 18-months at the ATA facility in Baku, Azerbaijan.
The CWP platform will provide support to three oil production platforms, part of the Azeri-Chirag-Gunashli (ACG) development, which BP operates on behalf of AIOC in the Azerbaijan sector of the Caspian Sea.
The platform will be connected by a bridge link to the Central Azeri drilling and quarters platform, for which it will meet all the gas and water injection requirements for oil and gas production. It will also provide electrical power via subsea power cables to the two production platforms in West and East Azeri.
"CWP is an important part of the ACG development and has been completed on time thanks to the expertise, experience, and dedication of the BP and ATA teams," Arne Henriksen, Amec project manager, says.
