Italy's Saipem wins $115 million deal to install gas sealines for Dolphin Energy
Italian oil services company Saipem is the successful bidder for a Dolphin Energy (DEL) contract valued in excess of $115 million to construct concrete-covered sealines offshore north east Qatar.
The award covers the engineering, procurement and installation of two 36-inch diameter concrete-coated sealines for the forthcoming Dolphin Project, reported a press release Saipem was also recently awarded the EPC contract for the project's main export pipeline.
When commissioned in 2006, the sealines will transport Dolphin’s production stream of unprocessed natural gas and hydrocarbon liquids some 80 kilometers from its two offshore platforms in the North Field – for delivery to the company’s processing plant in Qatar’s Ras Laffan Industrial City.
Thereafter, dry gas will be transported by the main export Pipeline to Dolphin’s receiving facilities at Taweelah in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The line pipe for both the sealines and the export pipeline will be supplied by Mitsui & Company of Japan, further to a mandate and procurement agreements issued in 2003.
On January 12, 2004, DEL announced the award of its initial Dolphin Project contracts – for construction of the Ras Laffan processing plant, supply of its compression units and construction of two offshore production platforms respectively. The sealines will provide the necessary link between them.
DEL was created to develop substantial energy projects throughout the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). Dolphin Energy is owned 51 percent by Mubadala Investment Company, on behalf of the Government of Abu Dhabi and 24.5 percent each by Total of France and Occidental Petroleum of the United States. — (menareport.com)
