BJ Services Company has been awarded a contract by Karachaganak Petroleum Operating B. V. (KPO) to provide a range of process services in Kazakhstan. The services will be supplied as necessary to ensure the highest levels of health, safety and environmental standards on designated process facilities and terminals of the Karachaganak processing complex (KPC) near Aksai, Kazakhstan.
BJ's process and pipeline services specialists will provide critical nitrogen purging, nitrogen/helium leak detection testing, and nitrogen equalization services. These activities will be carried out on a call-off basis to support scheduled shutdown and maintenance activities, and in the event of an emergency.
Dedicated Staff, Equipment in Aksai
Operations will be carried out by BJ Services personnel based in Aksai. In addition, BJ will employ and train members of local communities in lieu of expatriate personnel to support the project. Up to 20 permanent personnel will be required to support the operation, with additional crews to meet peak loading periods.
Long-term Commitment to Karachaganak
BJ Services has been involved with the Karachaganak field development project since the initial construction and commissioning of the Phase II facilities in 2002. The company provided nitrogen and helium leak detection testing, and lube oil-flushing services for the company's process facilities, Unit 2 and the KPC. Most recently, BJ completed a similar service contract on KPO facilities within the Karachaganak Field. This contract complements the existing well services contract where BJ personnel provides coiled tubing, nitrogen and stimulation services at the well sites that feed the KPO plant.
