DNV GL to support BP in Shah Deniz Stage 2 project

DNV GL has been awarded a contract for the provision of marine warranty, operations and consultancy services for the Shah Deniz 2 project operated by BP Exploration (Shah Deniz) Limited.

DNV GL will support the operator in assuring the project equipment transportation and installations are conducted to recognized guidelines, standards and internal requirements.

DNV GL emphasizes that Shah Deniz Stage 2, or Full Field Development (FFD), one of the largest gas developments in the world, will help increase European energy security by bringing Caspian gas resources to markets in Europe for the very first time. The project will add a further 16 billion cubic meters per year (bcma) of gas production to the approximately 9 bcma produced by Shah Deniz Stage 1.

James Dingwall, DNV GL Project Manager, said: “The project requires a strong emphasis on the delivery of quality project management that is focused to support the operator in the safe delivery of this tight schedule project. We have developed comprehensive processes, systems and procedures that provide the foundation for us to deliver on project commitments, ultimately demonstrating capability, competence and continuity whilst developing client trust.”

Charles Henderson, DNV GL’s Marine Warranty Services (MWS) Team Leader, who will shortly be starting his rotation in Baku added: “We were delighted to be advised of our success in the award of this project. The drive to ensure the project is conducted safely and efficiently is paramount, and DNV GL will be proactively supporting BP’s safety culture and ensuring the risks associated with “temporary works” and marine operations are adequately mitigated.

“Our MWS are supported by the in-depth knowledge of our practitioners and the delivery of this project will draw upon the support of personnel within the Group’s Marine, Engineering, Dynamic Positioning, Metocean and Geotechnical teams.” 

DNV GL has been providing integrity management on Shah Deniz 1 for the past ten years.
