Brief description of the subject: The field is located in the shallow area in the northern part of the Caspian Sea, 190 km from Astrakhan (Russia) at a depth of 7-11 m. The equipment is operated in conditions of moderate cold marine climate. The estimated lifetime of the platform is 35 years.
Industrial production at the field began on 31 October 2016 as a result of the commissioning of the first phase of construction. Infrastructure of the first phase includes the riser block (RB), ice-resistant fixed platform (IFP), central processing platform (CPP), living quarter platform (LQP) and head of coastal structures (HCS). The field has unique geology: high penetrability of collectors allows to reach record initial flush produсtion.
Task: The task was to choose the explosion-proof boxes and cable entries for connection of power cables. The equipment must be certified by RMRS (Russian Maritime Register of Shipping), to fit climatic execution (work at temperatures of -25 to+40C). The boxes should be vibration-proof.
Availability of the certificate on the conformity with the standard of ISO 14001: 2004.
The result: Especially for this project our company was certified by RMRS. For the shortest period possible packages were made in accordance with the terms of reference and transferred to the site.
The equipment has been successfully operated since 2016, which is confirmed by favourable formal opinion from the Сustomer represented by "LUKOIL-Nizhnevolzhskneft".
