Inshore Hook up

Kashagan Field Development Experimental Programme

On 15th of May, 2007 ERSAI has signed a preliminary contract for the project named “Inshore Hook-up and Commissioning”.

This project includes 10 modules that had been designed and constructed for Kashagan Oilfield, Kazakhstan in different parts of the world: Malta, Italy, Norway and UAE.

The modules were supposed to travel in to the Caspian Sea through the Volga river that however could not accommodate the dimensions of the modules as they were.

Therefore, it was decided to disassemble the modules to the basic components and send each module in a package (hull + components) to ERSAI Caspian Yard, where ERSAI contractual scope was to reinstate these modules.

On the 10 modules ERSAI has performed reinstatement works (reassemble the modules).
