HOUSTON -- Acergy has awarded CRC-Evans/Global Pipelines a contract to provide onshore double jointing of production lines as well as offshore welding services for the EnCana Deep Panuke natural gas field. Acergy is under contract to EnCana for subsea installation of 14.7 km (9.1 mi) of natural gas pipeline and 1.6 km (1 mi) of acid disposal lines for the project offshore Canada.
CRC-Evans/Global Pipelines says clad pipes will be delivered in nominally 6-m (20-ft) lengths to Invergordon, where they will be double jointed to 12-m (39-ft) lengths. The pipes will then be transported to the coating yard.
CRC-Evans/Global Pipelines will supply offshore welding services (personnel and welding equipment) to the Acergy Falcon construction ship for the offshore pipelay of the 8.625-in (22-cm) diameter gas lines, as well as the 3-in. (8-cm) acid disposal lines.
The double jointing operation in Invergordon begins in November. Offshore installation is scheduled for May.
