Perth company wins Baltic Sea HDD contract
A major Baltic Gas Project design and construction contract, which includes the use of Trenchless Technology, has been awarded to Perth-based Subsea Engineering Associates.
The scope of the contract include at least 110 km of subsea pipelines, a major shore crossing, risers, platform tie-ins and general system engineering.
Trenchless Technology will be employed for certain portions of the project, with horizontal directional drilling being used for the installation of the shore crossing.
Adam Czajko, Director of Subsea Engineering Associates (SEA), said “Our focus this year is to lock in the value generated during FEED by completing the design and going out to the market with tender packages for the main scopes.
“We expect significant interest from contractors and suppliers given the current state of the market. With tendered costs, the project should be in a strong position for Final Investment Decision during the second half of 2016.”
SEA recently opened an office in Gdansk, Poland which will play an important role in managing the Baltic Gas Project contract and other opportunities in the Baltic region.
