The company confirmed that on October 25, as a result of joint efforts by the SOCAR and “BOOTS & Coots” specialists, transportation of gas produced at platform No.90 of Bulla-Deniz field to the system was completely restored.

Gas is transported now by the groundwork pipeline to the coast.

“Consequences of the accident at the platform No.90 of Bulla-Deniz field were completely eliminated and the platform was saved and connected with the system,” SOCAR said.

The well, which was on fire since August 17, was killed Wednesday, October 23. Halliburton’s subsidiary, Boots & Coots, a pressure control company, helped with the operation.
