Construction of three Caspian-class barges for the FGP
The project is being implemented by Kazmortransflot LLP to help establish a marine transportation system for the FGP-WPMP, while self-propelled barges will be used to transport all over-sized process units from Kuryk Port to the new port of Prorva in the northern sector of the Caspian Sea.
As part of the project, during 2017-2018, Kazmortransflot LLP built three self-propelled barges at the Vard shipyard, which are currently transporting units for the FGP.
Construction of three tug boats for the TCO FGP
The project is also being implemented to help establish a marine transportation system for the TCO Future Growth Project and Wellhead Pressure Management Project (FGP-WPMP). The tug boats were built at the Damen shipyard in 2017-2018 and are currently being used to navigate vessels in the cargo transport route shipping channels.
Thus, Kazmortransflot has replaced the fleet with six vessels and strengthens its market positions, supporting offshore oil and gas operations. The vessels will be in demand during further field development in the Kazakhstan sector of the Caspian Sea.
KMG Automation LLP
Pressure sensors manufacturing plant
Assembling line capable to manufacture 4000 pressure sensors a year was put into operation in Dec 2018. The project is implemented by KMG Automation LLP, established by JSC NC “KazMunayGas” and Schneider Electric in 2015. The sensors are used in a number of industrial and infrastructure sectors. The Kazakhstani assembling line, which is Schneider Electric’s fourth global joint venture, and the first of its kind in Kazakhstan, was implemented within the framework of the state digitization and import substitution programme.
Cargo Transportation Route Project
TenizService LLP, a KMG subsidiary, is implementing the Cargo Transportation Route (CaTRo) Project in the northern sector of the Caspian Sea as per the order of Tengizchevroil LLP (TCO). The CaTRo is being implemented within the framework of an offshore transportation system for the TCO Future Growth Project - Wellhead Pressure Management Project (FGP-WPMP) and includes the North-Caspian Sea Channel with berthing facilities and coastal buildings and structures with vehicle access routes, an accommodation camp for 350 persons, and temporary cargo storage facilities.
CaTRo implementation has helped create an integrated offshore and onshore transport corridor to supply cargo for FGP-WPMP implementation.
On 16 April 2018, project construction and assembly work was completed, with the phased commissioning of the following construction phase 1 and 2 facilities:
– a sea access channel with a turning basin;
– cargo offloading facility (COF) with temporary unit storage sites, including engineering and communication networks;
– a vehicle access road to transport oversized units from the COF to the Tengiz field.
In April 2018, TCO issued an operating certificate to CaTRo allowing TenizService LLP to begin CaTRo operations. A total of 87 units weighing 48 000 tonnes were delivered, unloaded and sent to the FGP during the 2018 navigation period.
