Saipem has been awarded two new E&C contracts for onshore and offshore work in Indonesia on the Tangguh LNG Expansion Project. The contracts were awarded by BP Berau Ltd., as operator of the Tangguh LNG project, on behalf of the other production sharing contract parties.
The first award is for the engineering, procurement, construction and installation of offshore facilities, consisting of two unmanned platforms and subsea pipelines. Saipem will leverage its strong technological expertise in the design, fabrication and installation of platform and subsea pipelines. In accordance with the requirements of SKK Migas, Indonesia’s upstream oil and gas regulator, Saipem will contribute to local content enhancement, including through its own Karimun fabrication yard.
The second contract for the construction of an onshore LNG process train with a liquefaction capacity of 3.8 million tonnes per annum, utilities, offsites, an LNG jetty and associated infrastructure, has been awarded to CSTS, a joint operation led by Indonesian EPC Contractor Tripatra with Chiyoda, Saipem and Suluh Ardhi Engineering. Completion of the projects is expected in 2020.
“We are very pleased to have secured these two significant awards for the Tangguh LNG Expansion Project. These achievements represent Saipem’s capacity to contribute to satisfying South Asia’s growing energy demand through our diversified EPCI capabilities in offshore platform construction & installation and onshore LNG process trains, and also represent recognition of the value of our strong embedded safety culture, our commitment to the development of local content, and our integrated sustainability model,” comments Saipem CEO Stefano Cao.
