9:10 AM Condor Petroleum achieves first gas in Poyraz Ridge, Gelibolu Peninsula, Western Turkey, without any LTIs or environmental incidents
Mr. Hatcher had led the Condor Petroleum team in a ‘hands-on’ capacity leading the company’s efforts to build and commission a Central Processing Facility (CPF) and a 16 kilometre pipeline at the company’s recently acquired Poyraz Ridge field in Western Turkey. Most significantly, this project was brought online in just 19 months after acquiring the property without injury to personnel or environment incidents. The award is to recognise the Condor Petroleum team in Turkey and Kazakhstan for this remarkable achievement in an era of volatile oil prices and budgetary cuts.
