Case Study: BP Chirag Platform
Furmanite at the cutting edge
CUSTOMER: BP Chirag platform Azerbaijan
Plans to unlock the immense reserves of the Azeri-Chirag-Gunashi (ACG) field entered their next stage following an extensive rig upgrade on the Chirag platform.
The 120,000 barrels per day Chirag platform off the coast of Azerbaijan in the Caspian Sea benefited from the drilling of the first ‘extended reach’ well. Such wells involve greater departure distances from the platform to the bottom of the well than conventional developments, calling for specialist techniques and equipment.
