Shah Deniz Full Field Development

Shah Deniz Stage 2. What is it?

Shah Deniz Stage 2, or Full Field Development (FFD) is a giant project that will add a further 16 billion cubic meters per year (bcma) of gas production to the approximately 9 bcma produced by Shah Deniz Stage 1.

Over $25 billion capital investment will be required to produce the gas and transport it to the Georgia-Turkey border. From there additional pipeline systems are planned to deliver 6 bcma of gas to Turkey and a further 10 bcma of gas to markets in Europe. Shah Deniz Stage 2, one of the largest gas developments in the world, will help increase energy security of European markets through the opening of the new Southern Gas Corridor.


Shah Deniz stage 2’ project includes establishment of: two new bridges linked to the sea platforms, two semi-submersible drilling towers, 26 subsea wells, 500 km of subsea pipeline, Sangachal terminal expansion, the South Caucasus Pipeline (SCP), the infrastructure pipeline located in Europe and Turkey. The first gas exports are planned by the end of 2017.
