The repaired "Israfil Huseynov" pipelayer vessel will complete its work in the framework of the Shah Deniz II project in the Azerbaijani sector of the Caspian Sea by the end of November, a reliable source in the oil and gas sector of Azerbaijan told APA-Economics.

Note that On May 8, 2019, an explosion occurred on the vessel “Israfil Huseynov” operated by Italian company Saipem for pipelaying in the Caspian Sea in the framework of the Shah Deniz II project.

After the accident, the vessel was sent for repair.

This led to the delays of Saipem’s works in both the Shah Deniz-2 and Absheron gas and condensate fields.
