Saipem awarded a contract by Qatargas worth US$1.7bn

22 Feb 2021

Saipem has received a contract from Qatargas for the development of the North Field Production Sustainability Offshore Project, located offshore of the north east cost of Qatar peninsula. The contract is worth approximately US$1.7bn (£1.2bn).

The scope of work covers the engineering, procurement, construction and installation of various offshore facilities for the extraction and transportation of natural gas, including platforms, supporting and connecting structures, subsea cables and anticorrosion internally cladded pipelines. The project also encompasses the decommissioning of a pipeline and other significant modifications to existing offshore facilities.

Pipe-laying and lifting operations will be executed by the DE HE vessel in water depths of approximately 65 metres, leveraging on Saipem’s high-end welding technology for corrosion resistant cladded pipelines to meet client’s stringent quality requirements.

The project aims to increase the early gas field production capacity to 110 million tonnes per annum.

Saipem has recently expanded its offices in the country and strengthened its fabrication capability by co-operating with a local fabrication yard, offering a sustainable Qatar-based execution scheme.
