Saipem Secures EPCI Contract for TAP Pipeline



Saipem S.p.A has been awarded a new EPCI (Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Instalation) contract for the offshore section of the Trans Adriatic Pipeline project by Trans Adriatic Pipeline AG, a joint venture between BP, SOCAR, Snam S.p.A., Fluxys, Enagás and Axpo.

The contract, which focuses on the coastlines of Albania and Italy across the Adriatic Sea, will see Saipem conduct marine surveys, the instalation of a 36 inch 65 mile offshore gas pipeline, the supply and instalation of an offshore fiber optic cable, pre-commissioning activities and civil works at the landfalls in both Albania and Italy.

Offshore instalation works, which at their deepest point will reach 2,690 feet below sea level, will be carried out using Saipem’s Castoro Sei pipelay vessel and the trench/pipelay barge Castoro 10. Works will commence in 2016.
