BP's Vessel Khankendi Completes Sea Trials in the Caspian
The Khankendi's initial voyage in open waters began the 6-week trial of the subsea construction vessel (SCV) that took place in the Caspian Sea. Maritime experts executed more than 120 different tests designed to evaluate everything from engine and propulsion performance to dynamic positioning, navigation systems, cabin acoustics, as well as offshore capabilities.

Production of first gas from Shah Deniz Stage 2 is expected next year.
