The North Caspian Project is the first major offshore oil and gas development in Kazakhstan. It covers three fields: Kashagan, Kairan and Aktoty. The giant Kashagan field ranks as one of the largest oil discoveries of the past four decades, with approximately 9-13 billion barrels (1-2 billion tonnes) of recoverable oil. The Kashagan reservoir lies 80km offshore from the city of Atyrau in 3-4 meters of water, and is more than 4km deep (4,200 meters). In 2016, the first offshore oil in the history of Kazakhstan was commercially produced from Kashagan. The Operator of the project, North Caspian Operating Company N.V. (NCOC), completed a major pipeline replacement project ahead of schedule and on September 28 re-opened the first wells offshore.

AVENCOM Responsibility

AVENCOM was responsible for the design and installation of a high quality latest generation AV equipment. The project was intended to fully equip the «Caspian» Business Center with audio and visual equipment.

AVENCOM Approach

The project aimed to fully equip the Caspiy Business Centre in Atyrau with sound and visual equipment.

The work to be carried out was divided into three areas:

  • Equipping of Auditorium for 180 persons;
  • Equipping thirteen halls for meetings and conference rooms;
  • Equipping the halls on each floor with information screens.

Design objectives:

  • To harmonise signals of different formats from sources to a single type (carrier signal);
  • To carry the carrier signal over long distances;
  • To commutate signals with display devices with the highest possible quality.

The auditorium is equipped with a video signal scaler, two projectors as well as two fixed and one mobile video camera for video transmission and recording. Such equipment enables efficient use of the Auditorium’s equipment in various scenarios. For signal transmission transceivers were used over shielded twisted pair. Particular attention was paid to harmonising the power supply to the equipment on both the source and destination side to ensure the quality of the signal output was maintained.


Following the successful commissioning of the commissioned system, Customer and AVENCOM signed a new contract for the AV systems deployment in Production Control Centre of the Kashagan oil field.
