Please mention the location where you are saving the project (i.e. internal or external drive). Also, please mention the scratch disk and Project location as well. File size is not a problem in this case. Are you using any third party plug-ins in the project?
I am saving it to the local hdd and have tried to my media storage as
well and get the same results. No third party plugins. Scratch disc was
set to media drive. We have deleted all the cache offlined all the media
and still the same results. just hangs there seemingly doing nothing for
a very long time. I have read that using dynamic links from Premiere to
Media Encoder can cause this but no solution to fix it.

Please try the below steps.
Open the project
slect project panel and go to file/export/final cut pro xml
Export it as an XML.
Create a new project and Import the xml in that new project. Open the sequence and then try to save the project again.
Not an option as we have at least 50 sequences in the project and no respeed effects will carry across and their are lots of them. We have tried importing just one sequence and that saved out OK. Import the whole project and it breaks. I will try importing each sequence one by one instead to narrow down if one is breaking things.
Sorry but how does this help batch export is not a feature in CS6.This is a CS6 project ideally need to keep in CS6 so its backwards compatible with another dept not yet on CC. We tried it in CC to see if the problem persisted there and it does.
Got to the bottom of this. It was a bin of media causing the problem. I relinked the project and then found that items in this bin where offline even though when the project was opened and relinked gave no error or logged them as missing. If you then naviagted in the bin and clicked on a file it would crash. Looking at the metadata fields these files had no media path at all which seemed very odd. As soon as I removed the bin all was good.
Bit worried at whatt caused this bin to become corrupted.
This may happen if you have done a copy and paste in the sequence and the offline files from one project or a sequence is copied and pasted into new one. This problem can be fixed if you export xml and import it again in a new project. XML tends to remove files which are not interpreted correctly. The screen shot pasted above was for Final cut pro xml option not for the batch list.
You had batch list selected though. Either way none of my titles of effects we would need carry over via xml and would have to be remade. I would rather put up with the long save than recreate all of them again, Nothing has been copied in from another project at all. Sequences defintely been copied and renamed to version up not sure I copied and pasted from one sequence to another. Thankfully in this case they are older files no longer needed as they where storyboards used for pre production. I have feeling these where pulled in from across a network path before I took this project over. Checking the project file I found the path for them but this would not show in Premiere. The server they where pointing to is no longer online at all so maybe that was causing the issue? Either way not a nice bug. If media goes offline it should not corrupt any part of a project, this should be looked at.
Premiere pro is a non linear editor and creates a reference of the files used in the project. If it fails to create a xmp or refernce files then these issue arise. You can fill the feature request form though.
