Saipem has been awarded two new contracts for offshore activities in Côte d’Ivoire and Italy for an overall amount of EUR 850M.
The first contract has been awarded to Saipem by Eni Côte d’Ivoire and its partner Petroci. It is a Subsea Umbilicals, Risers and Flowlines (SURF) contract for the development of the Baleine Phase 2 project, which takes its name from the oil and gas field, located offshore Côte d’Ivoire at a 1,200m water depth.
The scope of work encompasses the Engineering, Procurement, Construction, and Installation (EPCI) of approximately 20 km of rigid lines, 10 km of flexible risers and jumpers, and 15 km of umbilicals connected to a dedicated floating unit. The installation works will be carried out by Saipem’s best-in-class offshore construction vessels and will take place in 2024.
The second contract has been awarded to Saipem, through a temporary association of companies with Rosetti Marino and Micoperi, by Snam Rete Gas for the construction of the facilities for the new Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) to be located in the Adriatic Sea offshore Ravenna, Italy.
The project consists of the Engineering, Procurement, Construction, and Installation (EPCI) of a new offshore facility, linked to the existing one, for the docking and mooring of the FSRU, to be connected to shore via a 26” offshore pipeline 8.5 km in length, plus a 2.6 km onshore pipeline and a parallel fibre optic cable. The shore crossing will utilize a micro tunneling system to minimize environmental impacts. Offshore operations will be executed by Saipem’s pipelay barge Castoro 10.
