PERTH, Australia – Baltic Gas has contracted Subsea Engineering Associates (SEA) to provide detailed design, procurement, and construction management for the Baltic gas project in the Polish sector of the Baltic Sea.
Baltic Gas is a partnership established specifically for the Baltic gas project between CalEnergy Resources Poland (CalEnergy) and LOTOS Petrobaltic. CalEnergy is the operator for the project development phase.
The SEA scope of work includes more than 110 km (68.5 mi) of subsea pipelines, HDD shore crossing, pre- and post-lay trenching, risers and platform tie-ins, as well as system engineering including reservoir to gas plant flow assurance. The work will be executed from the company’s Perth office.
Adam Czajko, director at 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 second half of 2016.”
The company recently opened an office in Gdansk, Poland, to support the Baltic gas project.
