Wood, the global consulting and engineering company, has become the partner of state enterprise Turkish Petroleum (TP) for managing the development of the Sakarya gas field in the Black Sea,
Sitting 150km off the coast, Sakarya is Turkey’s largest gas reserve with a confirmed capacity of 405bn m³. Phase 1 will deliver 10mn m³/d to the Turkish grid, where it will mingle with gas from Russia, Azerbaijan, Iran and with regasified LNG.
A multidisciplinary Wood team will carry out the integrated project management and engineering verification for the first engineering, procurement, construction and installation phase of the subsea production system, gas transport pipeline and umbilical and the onshore processing facility. It did not put a value on the contract.
In the November 25 announcement of the award, Wood’s president of energy, Andy Hemingway, 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 TP on this milestone project.”
In the past year, Wood’s subsea team supported TP throughout the project’s pre-FEED and FEED phases, drawing on its wide range of expertise and experience in onshore and offshore development. For more details, please see here.
