The heaviest jacket ever built in the Caspian was safely loaded out onto the transportation barge STB-1 at the quayside of the Heydar Aliyev Baku Deepwater Jackets Factory (BDJF) during the weekend.

The jacket will remain there through the remaining months of this year to allow the Dada Gorgud to complete the pre-drill activities commenced in 2010. The sail away for offshore installation is planned for early 2013.

The construction of the West Chirag jacket commenced in 2010 and was completed on schedule during the fourth quarter of 2012. During this period over 2000 people including sub contractors and specialist vendors, were involved in the construction works. Some 96% of the workforce was Azerbaijan nationals. The jacket was constructed by the local company BOS Shelf, now fully owned by SOCAR, who have used local construction infrastructure at BDJF facilities.

Total cost of COP will make 6-billion dollars.

The jacket has a total weight of 18,200 tons (which includes 1500 tons of floatation tanks) and is about 185 metres high. It will be installed at a water depth of about 170 metres.
