TWO IChemE members have been awarded the Royal Academy of Engineering’s 2019 Major Project Award for their collaboration to deliver Shah Deniz 2, a “complex major offshore, onshore and pipeline gas development project”.

Shah Deniz 2, managed and operated by BP, is the cornerstone of the Southern Gas Corridor (SGC) and spans 3,500 km from Azerbaijan to Europe via Turkey. The offshore project is located in the Caspian Sea, 70 km from Baku, Azerbaijan. It is the Caspian Sea’s first subsea project. At its peak, the US$28bn project will provide 16bn m3/y of gas and 38m bbl/y of condensate. The project has phased development and is set to achieve peak production in the early 2020s once all five production systems are operational. So far, two production systems have started up.
