Saipem has announced that it has won two new engineering and construction contracts for both on and offshore work on the Tangguh LNG expansion project in Indonesia. The project operator, BP Berau Ltd, awarded the contracts on behalf of the other production sharing contract parties.
Under the first contract, Saipem will provide the engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) of the offshore facilities. These will consist of two unmanned platforms and subsea platforms. In accordance with the requirement of the Indonesian upstream oil and gas regulator, SKK Migas, Saipem will contribute to local content enhancement, including via its Karimun fabrication yard.
The second contract has been awarded to CSTS, which is a joint operation led by the Indonesian engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor, Tripatra. It also includes Suluh Ardhi Engineering, Chiyoda and Saipem. Under the contract, CSTS will construct a 3.8 million tpy LNG process train, offsites, utilities, an LNG jetty, and the associated infrastructure. Work is expected to be completed in 2020.
The CEO of Saipem, Stefano Cao, said: “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 and 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.”
