Allseas Group has been awarded a contract from South Stream Transport B.V. to build the second string of the TurkStream gas pipeline’s offshore section.
The company intends to use its Pioneering Spirit, the world’s largest construction vessel, to lay more than 559 miles of pipe across the seabed for the second string of the pipeline.
The TurkStream Pipeline will start on the Russian coast near the town of Anapa and run over 900 kilometers through the Black Sea to come ashore in the Thrace region of Turkey. The offshore component of the system will consist of two parallel pipelines running through the Black Sea, terminating near the village of Kiyikoy.
From Kiyikoy, an underground pipeline will be developed connecting TurkStream to the existing pipeline network at Luleburgaz. From there, the route will continue to its end point at the Turkey-Europe border.
