SOCAR and KazMunayGas discuss the prospects of cooperation in Baku
During the visit to Baku, on 21-21 December Alik Aidarbayev, Chairman of Management Board of KazMunayGas, met with Rovnag Abdullayev, SOCAR's President, and the management of Caspian Drilling Company (CDC) at the offshore supply and logistics base.
CDC is upgrading on its premises the Satti jack-up drilling rig (JUR), owned by KazMunayGas.
After the upgrading, the Satti JUR may be involved in the work performed jointly by SOCAR and BP on the Absheron peninsula, and in other operations in the Caspian Sea area.
Let us recall, the official ceremony of acceptance of the Kazakh jack-up drilling rig Satti was held on 19 June 2019 in Baku.
This is the first platform, entirely built in Kazakhstan. It has been built for three years on two shipyards with utilization of an American technology. JUR is intended for drilling works in the Caspian Sea at depths of up to 80 metres.
