Schneider Electric powers Azerbaijan’s Absheron gas field

The 1st contract on the Absheron gas field was signed with foreign partners in the late 1990s

Schneider Electric powers Azerbaijan’s Absheron gas field

Baku, September 8 - Neftegaz.RU. According to Azertag, Schneider Electric is providing a range of technologies that will power the offshore facilities at Absheron, Azerbaijan’s latest gas field.
The solution, named an E-House, will combine power and control equipment together in a compact design for safe and reliable electricity.

Positioned in the Caspian Sea, approximately 100 km from Baku, the Absheron gas field is estimated to host 350 billion m3 of gas and 45 tonnes of gas condensate.
The site is jointly operated by Total and Socar.
Total is developing the field in multiple phases:
  • In the 1st phase, which is currently underway, production is expected to be around 1.5 billion m3 of gas per year.
  • In the 2nd phase, the production will be increased to 5 billion m3 of gas annually.
Working with joint venture, Schneider Electric designed a solution that would meet the electrical needs of the offshore facility and be ready as per the project’s schedule.
The E-Houses contains low and medium voltage equipment, transformers, and uninterruptible power supply devices.

This comprehensive solution saves in auxiliary energy consumption costs related to climate control (HVAC), lighting and auxiliary power, security, and fire and gas management.
Dan Vlasceanu, Country General Manager Central Asia at Schneider Electric, said:
  • The Absheron gas field is key to Azerbaijan’s economic development and required a power and control solution that would both meet the highest quality standards in an unusual operating environment and which would also be ready to install as per the development’s overall timelines
  • Schneider Electric was able to meet both of these requirements and our solution will power our Customer’s operations as they look to expand gas production at the field
Osman Avcilar, Project Manager at Schneider Electric, added:
  • Our system is compact and adaptive, allowing power to be supplied even in environments such as offshore rigs
  • This project underlines our expertise in being able to deliver power anywhere, and we’re delighted to be playing a role in such an important role for Azerbaijan’s economy
  • Our technology will ensure that Absheron’s operations will always have safe and reliable electricity
