Kentech Kazakhstan Secures Major Construction Contract on FGP/WPMP Project in Tengiz

Kentech Kazakhstan is delighted to announce that it has secured a major construction contract on the Future Growth Project / Wellhead Pressure Management Project.  The team will deliver electrical and instrumentation services on the Stage 2 Power & Lighting Project at 3GP (Third Generation Project), 3GI (Third Generation Injection) and GA (Gathering Area). FGP-WPMP implementation will allow an increase in Tengiz crude oil production capacity by approximately 260,000 barrels per day. While FGP implementation will expand production, WPMP will keep the existing Tengiz plants at full capacity by lowering wellhead pressure and boosting the pressure of the six existing processing trains. This major contract award adds to Kentech’s existing support contracts on the site where it is currently operating under three MSA’s covering maintenance, modification and turnaround services to major capital projects, production operations and the field engineering group.
