EnerMech get Caspian contracts

April 3, 2017

Mechanical services group EnerMech has strengthened its market position in the Caspian region by securing contracts with major operators valued at more than US$49.8 million (£40 million).

The contracts involve a number of EnerMech service lines including cranes and lifting, process, pipelines and umbilicals, valves, training and industrial services.

Aberdeen-headquartered EnerMech has been awarded a three-year contract with BP Exploration (Caspian Sea) Ltd to manage all of the operator’s crane operation, maintenance and inspection requirements in Azerbaijan. 

The contract covers assets spread over seven platforms, includes 12 offshore pedestal cranes, and will see EnerMech increase its Azerbaijani workforce from its current level of 80% to 100% within a three-month period.

The ATA consortium in Azerbaijan have commissioned EnerMech to provide a full range of hydrotesting, flange management, camera inspection and enhanced water blasting services on two platforms which are part of the giant Shah Deniz 2 gas condensate field. A separate project will see EnerMech for the first time provide ultra-high pressure tubing installation, pressure testing and flushing of tubing, with experienced supervisors from the UK and Asia training assisting local pipe fitters on the project.

Also at the ATA site, EnerMech have been awarded their first direct contract with BP for the provision of nitrogen/helium leak detection and pre-engineering is ongoing in London. 

More than $1.87 million (£1.5 million) has been invested by EnerMech in new equipment to service a first award at the Sangachal Terminal south of Baku, where they have been commissioned by Turkish contractor Tekfen to provide enhanced high-pressure water jetting and flange management over a two-year period.

EnerMech has also been commissioned by BOS Shelf to provide all jacket riser testing, subsea safety isolation valves and subsea spool testing at its Baku Deepwater Jackets Factory and will also carry out hydro testing, riser pigging and bolt tensioning work.

“This has by far been our most successful period in the Caspian region and the groundwork we have put in over the last five years is now paying dividends,” said John Guy, regional director for the Middle East, Asia and Caspian, EnerMech. “The extension of the BP cranes and lifting contract is an important development and our commitment to Azerbaijan has been underlined by our move towards a 100% Azeri project team.

“We have recently made senior Azerbaijan national appointments within our management team as part of our commitment to the development and nationalization of our 300 strong employees in Azerbaijan.”
