Key stats
The Challenge:
To provide Turkish Petroleum with asset-specific comprehensive systems and robust documentation to maintain and operate the Sakarya Gas Field Development during life of field.
Innovative approach:
Working across multiple work packages and offering integrated solutions, Wood brought together key interfaces utilising digital integration and document management.
Working in partnership:
Our longstanding working relationship with TPAO ensured collaboration at the highest level, as we delivered multiple scopes with the great support provided by TPAO.

Established working relationship

The Sakarya Gas Field Development is expected to meet approximately 30 per cent of Turkey’s domestic natural gas demand with first production from phase one’s 10 wells anticipated in 2023. The second phase, between 2023 and 2028, will involve development of the remaining 30 wells.

Accelerated delivery and an agile approach

TPAO and Wood delivered a fast-track Operations Readiness and Assurance (ORA) campaign for phase one of the development, providing the necessary documentation and data systems to enable safe and efficient start-up operations for first gas. Accelerated delivery and an agile approach, in line with TPAO’s asset management and operation strategy, meant a laser sharp focus for our teams, coming together to collaborate and successfully deliver against a tight programme.

Wood utilised established ‘in-house’ technology platforms to enable the development and delivery of asset specific technology platforms including an integrated maintenance database and an application to provide a comprehensive integrity management system.
