Petrofac has been awarded an EPC contract worth US$400 million by Gazprom's South Stream Transport for the development of onshore pipelines and a gas receiving terminal near Kıyıköy in Turkey for the TurkStream gas project.
Under the contract, Petrofac will provide engineering, procurement and construction for the receiving terminal, which will be ready for commercial operations in December 2019.
When completed, the facility will receive 31.5 billion cubic metres of gas annually from the TurkStream pipeline originating from the compressor station in Anapa, Russia.
Petrofac has been working since April on design and procurement for the project which is associated with the offshore section of the TurkStream Gas Pipeline.
Roberto Bertocco, Managing Director, EPCm for Petrofac Engineering and Production Services said: “We’re delighted to be working with South Stream Transport to help open up a vital gas export channel to Turkey and Southeast Europe. We now look forward to progressing to the next phase where our focus is on achieving safe and effective delivery in line with South Stream Transport’s goals and expectations.”
