Supplying Fire Safety to Tengiz Oil Field

TengizChevrOil (TCO) is the leading operators in Tengiz, an oil field located in northwestern Kazakhstan's low-lying wetlands along the northeast shores of the Caspian Sea.
Tengiz, like many oil fields, is characterized by high risk due to major investments, harsh environments, and a high hazardous industry. Fire safety is a top priority, given the disastrous consequences of fire for people and the environment.

More than 200 Heavy Duty Hose Reels

The total shipment to Tengiz Oil Field included more than 200 heavy duty Fire Hose Reels, uniquely designed for this project. Capability to handle finished products covering a warehouse area of 500 square meters were crucial to the success of transferring ownership from NOHA to TCO.  The delivery also included Pressure Reducing Valves (PRV), Nozzles, PMI testing, and an extended Documentation package.
