The project will provide critical infrastructure, as it will connect the subsea manifold at a maximum water depth of 1,700 m to the offshore platform where gas will be processed before being transported to shore in Israel.
The pipes will be manufactured in Corinth Pipeworks’ facilities in Greece, and installation work will commence according to schedule within 2024.
Scope of supply also includes internal and external anticorrosion coating, applied at the same location as pipe manufacturing at Thisvi, Greece.
In September 2022 Corinth was awarded two other offshore contracts:
- Corinth Pipeworks will manufacture 40 km of 24-inch longitudinally submerged arc welded steel pipes for the Fenix Phase 1 gas export pipeline offshore Tierra del Fuego, Argentina. The Fenix gas field is operated by TotalEnergies.
- Saipem contracted Corinth Pipeworks to provide the pipes for a new 28-km long gas pipeline offshore Greece. This will connect Gastrade’s FSRU to Greece’s National Natural Gas Transmission System, in turn transporting the gasified LNG to markets in northeastern Europe and potentially Ukraine.
