GALLERY: Socar commissions new offshore platform in Caspian Sea

Azerbaijan’s oil and gas company Socar has commissioned a new stationary drilling platform at the Bulla-Deniz offshore field in the Caspian Sea.  

The platform was commissioned in a ceremony on Monday, December 24, 2018, which was attended by Rovnag Abdullayev, President of Socar and other senior officials.

The platform was designed by the in-house Oil & Gas Research and Design Institute and the construction started in 2017. It was built by Socar Oil and Gas Construction Trust.

The offshore platform was designed for drilling of one exploration and four production wells. It was installed in a water depth of 30 meters and its deck is 12 meters above the sea. The average depth of wells will be 6300 meters.

According to Socar, after commissioning of the wells, the platform is expected to produce 2.5 million cubic meters of natural gas and 500 tons of condensate per day. The drilling will be carried out by ZJ-70DBS drilling rig. Drilling and exploitation works are scheduled to be carried out simultaneously. The wells will be operated by N.Narimanov Oil and Gas Extraction Department of Socar’s production unit Azneft.

Abdullayev said: “The new platforms based on modern technologies like Bulla-Deniz-12 will ensure the sustainability of our successes. We are proud of being able to build and install such complicated platforms that meet high engineering and technological requirements completely single-handedly.”

The Bulla-Deniz field is located in the northern part of the Baku archipelago, 10 km south-east from the Sangachal-Duvanny-Khara Zira island field.
