The last module of the FGP-WPMP project was delivered to the Tengiz field
In total, more than four hundred modules were delivered to the oil and gas field in the Zhylyoi region in three years, ATPress.kz reports with the reference to the press service of Tengizchevroil LLP (TCO).
In late October, the last module of the Future Growth Project - Wellhead Pressure Management Project (FGP-WPMP) was delivered to the Tengiz field.
This event marked an important milestone in the development of the project and underlines the completion of a three-year sea transport program of 408 modular shipments from international locations to Kazakhstan.
According to Eimear Bonner, TCO CEO, the completion of sea transportation is "... a colossal achievement that demonstrated the competence of Kazakhstani companies in the field of marine logistics and the production of metal structures."
At the same time, Ms. Bonner noted that, despite the difficult market conditions, the pandemic and the global scale of maritime logistics operations, TCO is pleased that they have met the expectations of their partners and Kazakhstan.
As emphasized in the message of the TCO press service, all modules were delivered on time in accordance with the plan, which allows timely continuation of installation and construction work at the Tengiz field. At the same time, it is specified that the weight of such modules ranges from 500 to 1,800 tons. They were manufactured in Kazakhstan, South Korea and Italy, and delivered via the inland waterway system of Russia to a cargo unloading point on the Prorva Peninsula of the Caspian Sea.
The total weight of the modular cargo was almost 280 thousand metric tons. Kazakhstani companies Ersai and KCOI have confirmed their technical capacity and professional training by completing the production of 81 prefabricated modular ramps and 10 remote control units created according to international standards in the Mangistau region. At the peak of the work, there were more than 126 vessels in operation, 40 of which were newly built or significantly modified specifically for this project.
The Kazakh company "KazMorTransFlot" operated by sea transportation in the Caspian Sea. In total, the vessels covered more than 140 thousand km between Kazakhstan and other points. Another legacy of FGP-WPMP is the new Cargo Transport Route (CaTRo), which was built on the Prorva Peninsula near Tengiz to receive and further transport modular cargo. CaTRo includes a 71 km long sea access canal, cargo unloading and storage facilities and an access road.
