GE Oil & Gas opened a new global services facility south of Baku in the Republic of Azerbaijan.
The facility, which represents a US$6 million investment, will employ 14 local personnel by the end of the year. It encompasses two warehouse spaces under a single roof, two heavy-duty overhead cranes, an outside storage area and office space.
A wide range of GE drilling and production equipment will be maintained and repaired at the center, including subsea wellheads, controls, connectors and subsea trees.
The Caspian region is an important source of oil and gas production, with major increases in offshore production expected over the next decade, according to the company.
