Fugro has been awarded a contract by Blue Stream Pipeline Company B.V. for the provision of survey support vessels and associated survey services to perform the 2015 external pipeline inspection for the offshore, shore approach, and dry section components of the Blue Stream Pipeline System.
The two 24 in. gas export pipelines, E1 and W2, run from the Beregovaya gas compression station in Russia’s Arkhipo-Osipovka, 235 miles (378 km) across the Black Sea, with a maximum water depth of approximately 2150 m, to the Durusu inlet terminal 40 miles (64 km) from Samsun in Turkey. The infield work in both areas has been completed and the reporting stage is now underway.
The Fugro-owned Atlantis Dweller was successfully mobilised in Istanbul at the end of August and is currently undertaking the external inspection of the offshore section.
