Since 2000, KBR has designed the offshore facilities for all phases of the ACG field development, consisting of four offshore facilities for the Azeri field, a two platform bridge linked complex for the Gunashli field, and a single platform for the Chirag Oil Field linked to the existing DWG-PCWU platform via inter-field pipelines.
The development includes major upgrades and expansion to the Sangachal oil and gas processing terminal, through the Sangachal Terminal Expansion Program (STEP), increasing throughput and storage capacity.
During June 2016 KBR completed 18 million man-hours on the programme of Caspian Projects (ACG and Shah Deniz) since the original contract was signed in June 1997 between Brown & Root and Amoco. In addition, July 2015 saw the total KBR billings for the ACG and Shah Deniz Projects passing the $2 billion mark.
