Sparrows Group has secured a five-year contract with Tengizchevroil (TCO) to deliver specialist lifting inspection services for the Tengiz field in Kazakhstan.

TCO is a joint venture between Chevron, ExxonMobil, KazMunayGas and LukArco. Sparrows has worked with the operator since 2004 and this latest award will extend their relationship to 20 years.

The contract will see Sparrows conduct pre-mobilisation and annual inspections for mobile cranes, gantry cranes, forklifts and boom trucks. The company’s experienced engineering teams will also manufacture custom-built wire rope slings to suit TCO’s operational and drilling requirements.

The operator’s on-site rigging and lifting workshop will be operated by Sparrows personnel for the duration of the project. Manpower, equipment rental, turnarounds and special projects will all be delivered from the workshop, located in the industrial base of the Tengiz field.

The company currently has 40 personnel dedicated to the project but expects this to increase as the project develops.

Stewart Mitchell, chief executive officer at Sparrows said:

'Having worked with TCO for 15 years we have a strong understanding of its inspection and maintenance requirements. We are delighted that the business continues to see the value we deliver, and this latest award would not be possible without our highly skilled and dedicated personnel.

'We have continued to see demand for our services increase in Kazakhstan as operators understand the long-term benefits strategic inspection and maintenance campaigns can deliver for their fields. We look forward to extending our relationship with TCO and working closely with the team to deliver operational and safety benefits to the Tengiz field over the next five years.'

The Tengiz field is an onshore reservoir located in north-west Kazakhstan which is ranked as the world’s deepest producing supergiant oilfield and the largest single-trap producing reservoir in existence.1
