Wood said the work on the Sarkaya field will help reduce Turkey's reliance on overseas gas imports.

Aberdeen-headquartered engineering giant Wood has won a contract working on the largest gas reserve in Turkey in the Black Sea.

The integrated project management deal with Turkish Petroleum is for the Sakarya gas field development project, 93miles off the country’s coast.

As the largest gas reserve in Turkey, Sakarya has capacity of 405 billion cubic metres of natural gas, with 10million metres per day to be delivered to the Turkish grid by 2023 on completion of phase one, Wood said.

The new discovery could alleviate much of the country’s dependence on gas imports, which comes from Russia, Azerbaijan and Iran via pipelines, and from countries including Nigeria, Algeria and the US via LNG transfers.

Wood will carry out the integrated project management and engineering verification for the first phase, which includes engineering, procurement, construction and installation of the subsea production system and gas transport facilities.

It will also cover the onshore processing site at the port region of Filyos.

Wood has been supporting Turkish Petroleum over the past year with the project’s pre-front-end engineering design (FEED) and FEED phase.

Andy Hemingway, president of Energy, Innovation and Optimisation at Wood, said: “The Sakarya Gas Field will make a significant contribution to the development and growth of the Turkish energy industry and the wider economy.

“With decades of experience, Wood is uniquely positioned to deliver on this new contract, and we are delighted to be continuing our longstanding working relationship with Turkish Petroleum on this milestone project.”
