Rolls-Royce signs Azerbaijan deal

Rolls-Royce plc has gained an order worth over USD 50 million for Azerbaijan’s oil and gas sector. It will supply five RB211 powered Coberra 6562 generator sets and allied equipment, including Rolls-Royce En-Tronic control equipment, for the first phase in a development of three offshore oil and gas fields in the Caspian Sea. Equipment for the Azerbaijan International Operating Company (AIOC), will be delivered in 2002–03. The contract includes an option to provide an additional Coberra power generation set and two additional Coberra mechanical drive units. If exercised, this option would bring the total number of units for Phase 1 of the development project to eight. The order is the first within an agreement that Rolls-Royce and BP, the designated operator of the development, signed in 2000. BP is the operator in the international consortium of oil companies that comprise AIOC. Three Rolls-Royce Coberra 6562 generator sets will provide power for the existing Sangachal on-shore oil processing facility. Two similar units will provide power for the DQ1 (drilling quarters) platform in the Caspian Sea.
