The Caspian West area presents challenges that are quite diverse, including near shore-shallow water, environmentally sensitive Caspian Sea environments. It also has deep, high pressure gas reservoirs which produce high flowrate gas wellsfields along with the challenges of the older more mature oil fields. While this region represents a tremendous variety of technical, logistical, and supply chain challenges, Halliburton`s organization in this region, coupled with a strong national workforce of approximately 500 employees, is well established to provide creative and innovative solutions. The potential of the resources and the diversity of the oil and gas plays demand a great variety of new technologies.
