EnerMech’s new Azerbaijan partnership with Oil & Gas Proserv secures contracts with operators worth (USD) $3m
A new joint venture (JV) between EnerMech and Oil & Gas Proserv (OGP), an affiliated company of Nobel Energy Group in Azerbaijan, has secured its first two contracts in the region totalling (USD) $3 million.
It is also expected to result in a recruitment drive later this year in line with the organisation’s ongoing commitment to local workforce employment and development to help actuate further business growth.
EnerMech is a global integrated mechanical, electrical, instrumentation and integrity services specialist, which also has facilities in the Caspian regions of Georgia and Kazakhstan. It has been operating in Azerbaijan for 12 years, steadily building up its presence and investment in employing and developing Azerbaijani nationals.
The new EnerMech OGP partnership will leverage EnerMech’s integrated supply, operations, maintenance and engineering solutions and specialisms alongside OGP’s local expertise, technologies and effective management for delivering enhanced oil recovery.
The first award is a $2 million contract to deliver engineering, lube oil flushing, accumulator charging and N2 He leak testing, to support a significant development which includes a new offshore platform and facilities designed to process up to 100,000 barrels of oil per day when it comes on-stream next year, and 300 million barrels in its lifetime.
The second is a $1 million campaign to support the development of the Absheron gas-condensate field. Located offshore approximately 100km south of Baku, it is estimated to contain 350 billion cubic metres of gas, along with more than 45 million tonnes of condensate. The work scope for the partnership includes engineering, flange management, N2 He leak testing, drying and inerting of all topsides piping and vessels for this project.
OGP general director Eldar Maharramov said: “OGP was set up in Azerbaijan 17 years ago to bring new technologies, effective management and local expertise to the oil and gas industry. We are very pleased to be joining forces with EnerMech as this will effectively double our capacity and competences and increase the quality and efficiency of our services across new strategic campaigns.
We look forward to working together to deliver these first two campaigns secured under the new JV, and the ongoing impact the partnership will have in supporting further employment locally.”
EnerMech’s Regional Director for Middle East & Caspian Paul Cockerill said: “EnerMech has been operating in the region since winning a flagship crane and lifting contract in 2010. Since then, our foothold in the region for delivering our core services has continued to expand as has our commitment to sharing knowledge, best practice, and safety competencies to upskill the local workforce.
Securing OGP as a JV partner has increased our capabilities with additional talent and technologies which complement our existing teams, services, and products. We will also be looking to recruit more Azerbaijani nationals as these two new projects get underway in the coming months.
Both campaigns are significant business wins and support our strategic growth in the region. We have also invested (USD) $1million in new equipment to enhance our fleet. With this robust infrastructure in place, we look forward to building on our existing relationship with customers in the region and forging new bonds.”

Nobel Oil Announces Major Rebrand
Today, Nobel Oil Services, the Group of diversified companies, has announced the completion of an extensive rebranding – change of the company name to Nobel Energy and renewal of the corporate logo – that reflects company’s new corporate vision and strategy.
The new strategy will see Nobel Energy transform from an Oil and Gas Services Company to an Integrated Energy Production, Development and Services company. The company will focus on delivering agile, efficient and more importantly, sustainable solutions for customers.
This change follows big energy companies’ transformation efforts – to become a net zero company and ensure sustainable development – to address the dual challenge.
Vugar Samadli, CEO Nobel Energy: “We want to help businesses turn their ambition into action, as well as be part of solutions, and therefore we are changing too. With greater focus on people, safety and sustainability of resources we want to be a catalyst for meeting the changing needs of our world. This is a challenging journey but we have the right ingredients – visionary approach, the right expertise, integrated solutions – to help our customers and the world achieve safe, efficient and sustainable results.”
“This rebrand and our enhanced approach to sustainability perfectly illustrate Nobel Energy’s ambition to play an active role in addressing the big energy challenge, as part of the strategic objectives set by our Shareholder,” added Mr. Samadli.
As part of the transformation, Nobel Energy will be adapting the strategy and structure to seize opportunities offered by advanced technology.
Nobel Energy will seek to partner with technology companies to jointly promote innovation, drive progress, and provide the needed skills to deliver agile and sustainable results for all its stakeholders.
Dashgin Isgandarov, vice president SOCAR for oil, gas production and transportation said: “On behalf of our management and personally, I congratulate Nobel Energy, SOCAR’s main service provider and partner, with the extensive rebranding – launching new name and corporate logo – of the company.
Nobel Energy has swiftly realized the changes in today’s energy world and kicked off the transformation process. I believe the company will make their valuable contribution by playing an active role in new energy initiatives as well as renewable energy projects.
We have a long and successful history of cooperation with Nobel Energy so I am well aware of their capacity and capability. This makes me to firmly believe that the company will accomplish this responsible mission.
I wish successes to our partner company on their important mission of developing new technology and innovative ideas in the country, Caspian region and the world. I am confident that Nobel Energy will successfully manage this”.
Bakhtiyar Aslanbayli, bp’s Vice President for the Caspian region, Communications and Advocacy, said: “It is not just the fact that an Azerbaijani company with diverse portfolio and international experience announces its rebranding and new vision that makes today’s event so significant. It’s much deeper, it’s quite a milestone for the country’s energy sector as for the first time a local company announces its ambition to transform in order to be part of the global changes, presents a roadmap to deliver that ambition and takes the responsibility for all this”.
Mr. Aslanbayli added: “As a representative of the company that started its transformation journey a couple of years ago and announced its new strategy, I can share the challenge of embarking on such a journey. We are pleased to see that our long-time service provider Nobel Energy have also decided to take the same challenge. Coordinating efforts to that end and creating synergies, clearly, will make a solid foundation for projects in support of the country’s energy transition and this is so much important not only for Nobel Energy but also for the entire energy sector of the country. On behalf of bp, I would like to congratulate all the staff of Nobel Energy and wish them success in this important and challenging endeavour”.
The rebrand sees a complete renewal of the company’s visual identity, including the logo and tagline.
Nobel Energy’s new logo embodies transition in the energy sector from hydrocarbons, (represented by the orange colour), to cleaner energy, (in blue), through sustainability (in purple). The target is (green), renewable energy which is supported by innovation (shown in the darker blue colour).
The new tagline – Because we care – builds on the Nobel Family’s heritage, which underpins their focus on people, their safety and well-being, and ensuring sustainability through innovative solutions. It defines company’s attitude towards both business and environmental sustainability.
