Offshore staff

MOSCOW – All preparations have been completed for the construction of the first two strings of the South Stream gas pipeline in the Black Sea, according to Gazprom.

South Stream Transport has concluded front-end engineering and design activities for the offshore program, while Saipem is still working on detailed engineering of the trunkline system.

Almost 300,000 tons of pipes have been produced for the first offshore string. Pipeline sections for the deepwater part are being welded in the port of Burgas, Bulgaria.

The completed pipeline system is expected to reach its full capacity of 63 bcm/yr (2.2 tcf/yr) in 2018.

South Stream Transport is a joint project company involving Gazprom (50%), Eni (20%), and Wintershall and EDF (15% each).
