Aberdeen-headquartered energy services group EnerMech has landed two contracts in Azerbaijan supporting major projects in the Caspian.

Its new joint venture with Oil and Gas Proserv (OGP), a Nobel Energy Group affiliate company, has won its first two deals worth $3 million.

The first award relates to supporting a “significant” field for an unnamed operator, which is expected to come on-stream next year producing 100,000 barrels of oil per day and 300 million in its lifetime.

It fits the profile of the BP-operated, $6 billion Azeri Central East (ACE) project, targeting first oil in 2023.

EnerMech is providing engineering, lube oil flushing, accumulator charging and N2 He leak testing

The second deal is in support of the TotalEnergies – SOCAR Absheron gas-condensate field.

EnerMech has won two contracts since entering a new JV with Oil & Gas Proserv, a Nobel Energy Group subsidiary in Azerbaijan

Absheron, around 60 miles south of Baku, is estimated to contain 350 billion cubic metres of gas and more than 45 million tonnes of condensate.

EnerMech has won a $2m deal for the project off Azerbaijan including engineering, flange management, N2 HE leak testing, drying and inerting of all topsides, piping and vessels for the project.

OGP general director Eldar Maharramov said: “OGP was set up in Azerbaijan 17 years ago to bring new technologies, effective management and local expertise to the oil and gas industry. We are very pleased to be joining forces with EnerMech as this will effectively double our capacity and competences and increase the quality and efficiency of our services across new strategic campaigns.

“We look forward to working together to deliver these first two campaigns secured under the new JV, and the ongoing impact the partnership will have in supporting further employment locally.”

EnerMech said the wins are expected to lead to a recruitment drive later this year.

The Aberdeen-headquartered firm has been operating in Azerbaijan for 12 years, and said the wins come after a $1m investment to enhance its fleet.

Regional director for Africa, Middle East & Caspian Paul Cockerill said: “EnerMech has been operating in the region since winning a flagship crane and lifting contract in 2010. Since then, our foothold in the region for delivering our core services has continued to expand as has our commitment to sharing knowledge, best practise, and safety competencies to upskill the local workforce.

“Securing OGP as a JV partner has increased our capabilities with additional talent and technologies which complement our existing teams, services, and products. We will also be looking to recruit more Azerbaijani nationals as these two new projects get underway in the coming months”.
