The Shah Deniz Consortium started production on the Southeast Wing of the Shah Deniz-2 Field. With this production, it is aimed to meet the energy needs of two million houses by adding a total of 400 million cubic meters of gas per day to the existing gas production.
In the Shah Deniz-2 Project carried out by the Shah Deniz Consortium, production on the 540-meter-deep Southeastern Wing, planned for 2021, was started on time and safely.
Production on the deepwater wing began operations on 30 June after successful completion of all relevant offshore construction and commissioning work.
The new production portion of the project, located in the Southeast Wing; It consists of two new flow lines, four wells and a series of subsea structures connected to the world-class Shah Deniz reserves. Gas flow from the field in the Southeast Wing is expected to reach full capacity production rates in the third quarter of 2021.
Gary Jones, Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey Regional President of Shah Deniz operator bp, said:
“This production was the most important milestone we plan to reach in 2021 at Shah Deniz. We are proud that we have accomplished this safely within the budget and time we have planned, despite all the difficulties and restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
After the main infrastructure works of Shah Deniz-2 were completed in 2018 and the first gas was obtained, our entire Shah Deniz team continues to work on reaching new wells in the remaining wings and accelerating production in the huge area in the submarine system. In the Shah Deniz-2 Southeast Wing, where production has just begun; I am pleased to say that we expect to add approximately 90,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day to Shah Deniz field production using two distribution pipes and more than 40 kilometers of flow lines. I would like to thank all the project and operation teams who ensured that this important project was delivered as a result of hard work under extremely difficult pandemic conditions.”
