Shah Deniz gas field is the largest natural gas field in Azerbaijan. It is situated in the South Caspian Sea, off the coast of Azerbaijan, approximately 70 kilometres (43 mi) southeast of Baku, at a depth of 600 metres (2,000 ft). The field covers approximately 860 square kilometres (330 sq mi). The Shah Deniz gas and condensate field was discovered in 1999. Stretching out over 140 square kilometres, the reservoir is similar in size and shape to Manhattan Island .
It is to bring gas into Europe without having to traverse countries like Russia or Iran, deemed to be politically unreliable by some.
As part of the SD2 team in the KBR head office in Leatherhead, we were responsible for creating and managing the schedule for the execute and detailed design phases of the SD2 for Process Engineering, Materials Engineering and HVAC disciplines for both Onshore and Offshore created from from CTR and DCN documentation provided by the discipline leads. Other basic reports were produced on monthly basis including man-hour/power reports, staff/agency labour analysis as well as other general project reports.
