Saipem has been awarded the EPIC contract for the installation of a marine pipeline system, as part of the MEDGAZ transportation system, to facilitate the transportation of natural gas from Algeria to Spain across the Mediterranean Sea.

The contract has been awarded by MEDGAZ, an international consortium of five companies (SONATRACH 36%, CEPSA 20%, IBERDROLA 20%, ENDESA 12% and GAZ DE FRANCE 12%).

Saipem will be responsible for the engineering, procurement, construction and pre-commissioning of a 24 inch nominal diameter, 208 kilometre long offshore pipeline between Beni Saf, Algeria and Almeria, in the Spanish coast. The proposed pipeline, whose pipes will be supplied by the client, will be laid at a maximum water depth of 2,160 meters, and will have an initial capacity of 8 billion cubic meters per year. The majority of marine activities will be carried out by the Saipem 7000, and partly by Castoro Sei during 2008.
