Neft Daslary - Bahar Pipelay Work Underway

Pipelay work has started on the 67 kilometer long, 20-inch gas pipeline between the Neft Dashary and Bahar fields in the Caspian Sea. Over the past eight days, 14 kilometers of the submarine pipeline has already been constructed. A two kilometer section of the pipeline was welded on shore, and moved on location by the construction and assembling unit No. 3 of Oil and Gas Construction Trust.

The new gas pipeline with capacity of 5.5 million cubic meters will deliver gas from the Gunashli field to shore. The pipelay contractor, McDermott, is planning to lay three kilometers of pipe every day. The construction of the pipeline is carried out within the framework of Gas Program of SOCAR, and it will be completed by the end of the year.
