Blue Water expands in Kazakhstan
Blue Water’s strong presence in the Caspian region is strengthened with a new office in Atyrau, Kazakhstan. For more than twenty years, the company has been present in the Caspian region – with offices in Aktau, Kazakhstan and Tbilisi, Georgia and Baku, Azerbaijan. The main activity for Blue Water in the region is transport and logistics for the Oil and Energy sector. Blue Water has been involved from the mid-nineties in a wide range of large transport projects to the region through the Russian Inland Water System by sea, and also by land and air transport to the region.
“We have developed a strong expertise with complex project transport in the Caspian region, and we will continue to focus on providing excellence logistics solutions to the industry. To do so, we have decided to expand our presence with a new office in Atyrau. In this way we will be closer to our clients and our network of partners”, states Stewart Macdonald.
“Our extensive experience in customs clearance within the region has added value to our transport projects and logistics business, which at times can be challenging. Our customs team are experts in solving any issues complex or otherwise to and from the region”.
The Atyrau office will work in close cooperation with Blue Water’s Caspian regional offices and the global network of Oil & Energy offices within Blue Water.
“This project has allowed us to increase our expertise and competences in the energy sector both in Kazakhstan and further afield. We see a strong set-up in Kazakhstan as a natural step forward for us. We predict further growth in the energy sector and in related segments in the region. Based on our knowledge and expertise, we see ourselves as a reliable partner when it comes to transport and logistics”, states Thomas Bek.
Currently, Blue Water is overseeing the project management of a large transport assignment for the Tengizchevroil – Future Growth Project in Kazakhstan – with regards to the development and expansion of the Tengiz Oil Field in Kazakhstan.
The MCV vessels (Module Carrier Vessels) were specially designed for the TCO FGP project.
