Since in country production commenced, NSC have supported TCO requirements for gaskets and Static Sealing products. In addition to the TCO BPA, NSC have been awarded regular TCO orders for locally manufactured products.
The current CT-KZ certificate shows local content up to 74.9%.During the 2012 major August TA, Novus Caspian were requested to supply a number of critical gaskets which were needed same day/next day to Tengiz site. The gaskets were produced and delivered within 24 hours.
This enabled TCO Engineers to complete TA tasks ahead of plan, in turn saving time and money on the event. This immediate delivery service had never been encountered in the history of the Tengiz site for such products.
In November 2012, an issue arose at Tengiz which led to the requirement of 2,500 hanger plates, cut from 370 square meters of 3mm thick 310 stainless steel. The steel was supplied by TCO`s Russian vendor, direct to Novus Caspian.
The sheet steel was cut using the large NSC Plasma Cutting Machine and all plates were supplied to Tengiz within 72 hours.
