The world’s largest construction vessel Pioneering Spirit, owned by Allsesas, is set to leave Rotterdam on Saturday to begin work in Black Sea.

The vessel will install two 900-kilometer pipelines at 2200 meters water depth as part of the TurkStream project.

Allseas secured the contract for the installation of the first string of TurkStream in 2016.

Soon after the award, South Stream Transport B.V contracted Allseas for the installation of the second string of the gas pipeline.

The first string of the TurkStream gas pipeline is intended for Turkish consumers, while the second string will deliver gas to southern and southeastern Europe.

Each string of TurkStream will have the throughput capacity of 15.75 billion cubic meters of gas per year.

Specially for this project, Pioneering Spirit is equipped with a so-called “stinger”, a truss construction over which the pipeline is directed to the seabed, Allseas noted.

In addition to Pioneering Spirit, Allseas Audacia vessel has started operations on the TurkStream installation.

The vessel will be also used for pipe pulling through microtunnels.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
