BAKU, Azerbaijan, October 7. The Azeri Central
East (ACE) offshore oilfield platform in Azerbaijan is being built
on the basis of the latest technologies, Project Manager of ACE
Neal Phillips said this during a media tour for reporters, reports.
According to him, the implementation of this project will be an
example of the construction of a modern platform in the region.
'This project will make it possible to produce 300 million
barrels of oil products by 2050, that is, to extract the full
potential of Azeri-Chirag-Guneshli,' Phillips said
'This platform will facilitate gas production at the Central and
Eastern platforms. The ACE platform will be equipped with a spare
pipeline. In addition, this platform will operate almost completely
automated. Both business management processes and production
processes will be automated,' he said.
Philips noted that the oil produced from the platform will be
transported via a 30-inch pipeline to the Sangachal terminal.
'In addition, technical work on the platform will be carried out
not once every six years, but once every eight years. This will
maximize production. A 30-inch pipeline will be built for oil
transportation, and a 22-inch pipeline for gas transportation. A
16-inch pipeline is expected to be built to ensure the platform
with water. All of them will be connected to the Sangachal
terminal,' he informed.
According to Philips, today the ACE platform is 95 percent
'About 62 percent of pipelines and other mechanical facilities
have been put into operation. Work continues on connecting
pipelines and installing appropriate compressors. After testing,
the platform will be put into operation,' he said.
The STB-1 barge is expected to be sent to the offshore field in
the first quarter of 2023, Phillips added.
