Stolway has secured a contract to supply a custom-engineered Air-Cooled Packaged Unit for use at Tengizchevroil’s (TCO) Future Growth Project/Wellhead Pressure Management Project (FGP/WPMP) in the Republic of Kazakhstan.
The order for the custom-built high specification Zone 1 hazardous area rated ATEX certified Packaged Unit is being built to TCO’s specific requirements and for the harsh operating conditions of the Tengiz environment.
The unit will be supplied from Stolway’s head office facility in Wollongong, NSW Australia and once complete, will be integrated with a new Analyzer House currently under construction.
The Analyzer House will then be installed onshore at Tengizchevroil’s integrated Future Growth Project-Wellhead Pressure Management Project (FGP-WPMP) site, located in the north-east of the Caspian region of Kazakhstan.
Key design features of the unit are:
Tengizchevroil ‘Future Growth Project (3GP)
Discovered in 1979, the Tengiz oil field is one of the largest discoveries in recent history.
The integrated Future Growth Project-Wellhead Pressure Management Project (FGP-WPMP) is designed to further increase total daily production from the Tengiz reservoir and maximize the ultimate recovery of resources. The FGP will use state-of-the-art sour gas injection technology, successfully developed and proven during TCO’s previous expansion in 2008, to increase daily crude oil production from Tengiz by approximately 260,000 barrels per day.
In parallel, the WPMP maximizes the value of existing TCO facilities by extending the production plateau and keeping existing plants producing at full capacity. First oil is planned for 2022.
