Perth based Subsea Engineering Associates Pty Ltd (SEA) has been awarded detailed design, procurement and construction management for the Baltic Gas Project in the Polish sector of the Baltic Sea for Baltic Gas Sp. z o.o. i wspólnicy sp. k (Baltic Gas). The project is being undertaken on behalf of Baltic Gas, a partnership established specifically for the Baltic Gas Project between CalEnergy Resources Poland Sp. z o.o. (CalEnergy) and Lotos Petrobaltic SA. CalEnergy is the operator for the project development phase.
The SEA scope of work includes over 110km of subsea pipelines, HDD shore crossing, pre and post-lay trenching, risers and platform tie-ins, as well as system engineering including reservoir to gas plant flow assurance. The work follows on from successful completion of the FEED studies, and will be executed from SEA’s Perth office.
Adam Czajko, Director at SEA, said: “Our focus this year is to lock-in the value generated during FEED by completing the design and going out to the market with tender packages for the main scopes. We expect significant interest from contractors and suppliers given the current state of the market. With tendered costs, the project should be in a strong position for Final Investment Decision during second half of 2016.”
SEA recently opened an office in Gdansk, Poland to support the Baltic Gas Project as well as other opportunities in the Baltic area within both the Oil and Gas and Renewable Energy sectors (wind farms). The Gdansk office will play a strategic role in continuing to offer SEA’s clients cost effective offshore services including engineering, fabrication and project management.
