About BOS Shelf

BOS Shelf LLC is one of the leading companies in the oil and gas sector of Azerbaijan, specializing in construction of deep water jackets and topsides operating on offshore oil and gas fields.

The company was founded in 2001 by the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan Republic (SOCAR) and Star Gulf FZCO.

From the very beginning of its activity, BOS Shelf has been dealing with the most large-scale and complex offshore oil and gas production projects in Azerbaijan.

In 2001 Azerbaijan International Operating Company (AIOC) awarded BOS Shelf the contract for construction of two deep water jackets for Central Azeri Field which was the Phase 1 of the full-scale development of the largest oil and gas project in the history of Azerbaijan - Azeri-Chirag-Gunashli (ACG).

The project envisaged the construction of a 26,000-ton jacket structure and 14,000 tons of piles. The project was delivered on schedule, achieving Quality and Safety objectives.

Following on from the successful delivery of Phase 1, AIOC awarded BOS Shelf the contract for construction of five deep water jackets for ACG Phase 2 and Phase 3, as well as, the COP (Chirag Oil Project) jacket. The projects were successfully delivered in accordance with international standards from 2005 to 2012.

In 2012 BOS Shelf became the exclusive operator of the Baku Deep Water Jacket Factory named after Heydar Aliyev, starting the process of extensive modernization of the factory’s production capacities.

In 2013 the company signed a contract with BP on the construction of deep water jackets for one of the world's most complex offshore gas production projects - Shah Deniz Stage 2. The contract anticipated the construction of two deep-water jackets and five subsea clusters.

Despite technical complexity, BOS Shelf managed to perform the bulk of work ahead of schedule, continuing to carry out accompanying work within the project.

Along with the main construction projects, BOS Shelf successfully carries out modernization of drilling rigs and transport barges, Design/Purchase/Construction work on the Onshore Processing Plants and the operation of the Supply Base in support of offshore operations.

Aiming at incessant development, BOS Shelf continues to work on a number of extensive and strategical projects, proudly declaring itself a world class Azerbaijani company.
