2010/11/30 New gas pipeline estimated at $3bn to be built in Azerbaijan

The new gas pipeline estimated at $3bn will be built to ensure export of growing volumes of gas from Azerbaijan.

Trend reports that according to BP the new gas pipeline will be necessary for pumping additional 16bn cubic meters of gas a year within the framework of Shah Deniz-2 project envisioning the full scale development of Azerbaijan’s big offshore gas condensate field Shah Deniz.

According to BP Azerbaijan Rashid Javanshir, the new export gas pipeline will extend to 400 km, it will be built to the Azerbaijani-Georgian border.

In Georgia, where two powerful compressor will be built, the new gas pipeline will be connected to the existing South Caucasus Pipeline which is current used to export gas from the first phase of the Shah Deniz field development.

The overall volume of gas export within the framework of the large scale development of the Shah Deniz field will make up 24bn cubic meters a year. The fuel transportation will thus be ensured at the cost of two gas pipelines.

Two offshore platforms and 30 underwater wells will be established to produce additional 16bn cubic meters of gas a year within the framework of the Shah Deniz-2 project. The contract for the development of the Shah Deniz offshore field was signed in 1996. The participants of the agreement are BP-25.5%, Statoil-25.5%, NICO-10%, Total-10%, Lukoil-10%, TPAO-9%, SOCAR-10%.

Currently, the gas from the Shah Deniz field is transported by SCP to Georgia and Turkey. Azerbaijan also buys the gas. Azerbaijan to build new $3 billion pipeline

A new gas pipeline worth $3 billion will be built in Azerbaijan to ensure the export of the country’s increasing volumes of gas. BP announced today that the pipeline will be constructed to pump an additional 16 billion cubic meters of gas per year under the Shah Deniz-2 project, which involves the full-scale development of Azerbaijan’s largest Shah Deniz offshore gas field.

BP Azerbaijan President Rashid Javanshir said the length of a new export pipeline will be 400 kilometers, and will run to the Azerbaijani-Georgian border. In Georgia, where two large compressors will be built, the pipeline will be connected to the existing South Caucasus Pipeline, which is now used to export gas from the first phase of the Shah Deniz project.

The total gas export volume within the full development of the Shah Deniz Field will reach 24 billion cubic meters per year. Gas transportation will be ensured through two pipelines.

Two offshore platforms will be build and 30 subsea wells will be drilled for the extraction of an additional 16 billion cubic meters of gas per year under the Shah Deniz-2 project.

Gas is transported to Georgia and Turkey via the South Caucasus Pipeline.

The contract to develop Shah Deniz was signed June 4, 1996. Participants are: BP (operator) – 25.5 percent, Statoil – 25.5 percent, NICO – 10 percent,Total – 10 percent, LukAgip – 10 percent, TPAO – 9 percent, and SOCAR – 10 percent. New 400 km-gas pipeline to be launched in Azerbaijan

New 400 km – gas pipeline is planned to be launched within te framework of full-scale exploration of Shahdeniz Field, BP-Azerbaijan’s President Rashid Javanshir told journalists.

According to him, $ 24 bln may be invested in Southern Caucasus (Baku-Tbilisi-Erzurum) pipeline to triple its throughput capacity from 8 bcm to 24 bcm: “The future works on increase of throughput capacity include extending of Sangachal Terminal and construction of two new compressor stations of in Georgian part of pipeline”. Russia increases gas and energy tariffs

The gas tariffs for Russian population will be increased by 5% from January 1, 2010, by 9.5% from April 1, 2011, APA reports, quoting Russian Press.

Energy tariffs will increase by 10%, tariffs for water supply by 18%, from 2011. Ashgabat, Tehran develop new contract on Turkmen natural gas sales

Ashgabat and Tehran are preparing a new contract on an additional sale of Turkmen gas in connection with the commissioning of new gas transportation system between the Turkmen Dovletabat Field and the Iranian Sangbast settlement, an official Turkmen source reported.

Based on the project, the pipeline will provide an opportunity to increase gas supplies to 12 billion cubic meters of gas annually. Together with the existing Korpeje-Kurtkui gas pipeline, Iran will purchase 20 billion cubic meters of gas annually from Turkmenistan.

The new supplies are designed to meet the needs of Iran’s northeastern settlements, in particular the Semnan, Mazandaran, Golestan, Khorasan-Rezavi, North Khorasan, and South Khorasan provinces.

The project is implemented within an agreement signed between the Turkmengaz state concern and Iranian National Gas Company in July. The parties agreed to increase Turkmen gas exports from 8 billion cubic meters to 14 billion cubic meters in 2010, and then to 20 billion cubic meters per year in the long term.

“Turkmenistan’s main gas pipelines to Iran – designed for long-term gas supplies – allow our country to significantly expand its gas export capacity, which will facilitate the successful implementation of our national energy strategy, including the provision of stable energy resource transportation to world markets to ensure global energy security,” the source said. Iran and Turkmenistan launch second gas pipeline

The final half of a $1.2-billion pipeline transferring Turkmenistan’s gas into neighboring Iran has been inaugurated, BusinessWeek reported.

Iran’s official IRNA news agency said Sunday the line is part of a major 1,059-kilometre (620-mile) pipeline which connects Tehran to the Khangiran refinery near the northeastern Iranian town of Sarakhs.

IRNA says the pipeline has an initial capacity of 20 million cubic meters per day (706 million cubic feet per day).

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his Turkmen counterpart Kurbanguly Berdymukhamedov inaugurated the pipeline.

The pipeline is a key step toward diversifying Turkmen gas export routes and turning Iran into a regional gas hub.
