We utilised our technical expertise, meticulous planning and ingenuity to overcome a host of challenges in a landlocked country with a partially inaccessible site location.

The contract covered Engineering, Procurement, Construction and commissioning (EPCC) work for the Galkynysh gas field processing facility in addition to infrastructure and pipelines.

Thinking outside the box to meet the schedule

With an extremely ambitious 33-month schedule, our teams adopted out of the box thinking on numerous occasions to assure on-time delivery for Turkmengas.

Complex logistics underpinned by meticulous planning were a necessity for this project. We used a mix of road, air, rail, sea and river freight to secure the right materials at the right time, journeys which required multiple border crossings and passage over rough terrains.

Creating local value and long-lasting skills

We are proud that Turkmen nationals represented over 70% of our project workforce, with more than 55 Turkmen companies involved at the construction stage. In line with our commitment to national workforce development, we provided training to 4,000 Turkmen nationals throughout the duration of the project.
