Gobustan Fields Gas Development 

GOC were developing a new condensate extraction facility South West Gobustan gas fields, Azerbaijan. The field was due to start production within two months but the job was a long way behind and the instrumentation and control cables had not been ordered. The electrical work was being carried out by several different companies based in Canada, Azerbaijan and the U.K. on a joint venture basis. With time differences, varying working practices and a lack of equipment to install, tension and stress levels were high.

In an eight week period FSCG needed to help the GOC team move from a specification stage to pumping condensate. All aspects of the installation need to be specified and supplied from cabling, glands and switchgear to enclosures and lighting.

How did FSCG help?

A project manager from FSCG with knowledge of the Oil & Gas industry and expertise in fast-track projects was dedicated to GOC to provide technical support and a single source procurement service, 24 hours a day. This enabled specifications to be agreed, goods ordered and shipped on a daily basis without delay.

By taking advantage of our geographical position we provided a 24 hour central communications point between the EPC contractor in Canada and the client in Azerbaijan to supply a tailor made procurement and expeditor service. This ensured all parties saved time and money with the guarantee of the correct goods arriving on time.

Throughout the duration of the project two dedicated lorries and numerous airfreight shipments were made to Azerbaijan to facilitate the installation. The plant was commissioned within the two month window and started pumping gas on time.
