Kashagan Field Development

The Kashagan Field development is the largest offshore field in the North Caspian and is one of the largest oil field discovered over the last thirty years.

Kentech’s involvement in the Kashagan field began in 2006 when we delivered the full installation of the electrical, instrumentation and telecommunication works on the onshore Utilities Plant including the main power and emergency electrical generation facilities and the steam turbine building on behalf of Bateman Kazakhstan.

In November 2007, Kentech signed a contract with Aker for the provision of electrical and instrumentation services associated with the hook up and commissioning of Island D on the offshore works. These works were completed in 2012 with a peak manpower of 1,300.

In January 2010, Kentech embarked on a support services contract with BJ Services for the provision of the mechanical testing scope of works for the process, accommodation and power generation areas. In April of that year, we were awarded a new contract on the project providing offshore module modification works for ERSAI.

In 2011, Kentech was awarded a calibration services contract with CCEP on Kashagan A Island and then later that year we were awarded a cable pulling contract with the same client on D Island. Also in 2011, we supported Bolashak by providing electrical and HVAC commissioning services on R Island.

Kentech’s work on Kashagan continues throughout 2012 and 2013 with contracts directly with Agip KCO; the first being a commissioning contract for heat tracing panels, the second being a cable pulling contract on D Island and the third being a commissioning contract for offshore activities on Trains 1 and 2 at R Island. We also embarked on a specialist contract with Dietsmann where we will deliver specialist COMPEX electrotechnical inspections in hazardous areas at Karabaton.

In November 2015, Kentech returned to Karabatan as part of The Eskene West Rail Project. In the first of two contracts awarded to Kentech by our client, Isker, we provided EI&T completions and commissioning services. As part of this commission, Kentech were requested to mobilize over 400 men and have 160 on site within an 8 week period. We were then further awarded the EI&T installation package for the loading facility.


On Tuesday 9th February 2021, we announced an agreement to acquire the oil & gas business of SNC-Lavalin’s Resources Division.

This business includes people and assets brought together through their acquisition of the Kentz and other energy services businesses. This transaction marks an exciting, ground-breaking development for Kentech to reinforce our position as a leading integrated energy services provider and introduces us to the renewable / clean power marketplace. We now move forward together with a global network of more than 10,000 professionals united by a commitment of common values and strong partnerships with clients from across the world.

By investing now, we are strategically positioning the company to take advantage of the next cycle of growth.

Our complementary businesses will join forces, creating a stronger offering across the full asset life cycle – from consulting to design and build, commissioning and start-up, through to maintenance, modification and turnaround, as well as decommissioning services.
