LOC Group is pleased to announce that it recently achieved 100,000 global Marine Warranty Surveyor (“MWS”) man hours incident free on the ongoing Tengizchevroil (“TCO”) project, located east of the Caspian Sea in Kazakhstan. Reaching this total number of hours, incident free, on a single MWS project is believed to be a first for the industry.

The Group was awarded the role of MWS on TCO’s “Future Growth and Wellhead Pressure Management Project” (“FGP-WPMP”) in 2015. Since then, LOC has also provided Marine & Engineering Consultancy services for marine transportation operations of project assets and heavy-lift cargo to Tengizchevroil LLP. The project involves ocean transport of a large numbers of modular cargo from fabrication yards in Korea and Europe to transhipment bases in Finland and Bulgaria, from where the cargo is shipped through the Russian riverways to the Caspian Sea.

Shai Tzucker, Energy Operations Director at LOC, commented:

“Since being brought onto the TCO project in 2015, we have been very pleased with the work achieved to date. LOC has played an important role in this logistically complex project.

In terms of Marine Warranty, FGP-WPMP is on a ground-breaking scale. By achieving 100,000 MWS man hours incident free, we have demonstrated LOC’s ability to safely perform and deliver an extensive MWS project on one of the most high-profile oil and gas developments in the energy industry.”
