TurkStream Offshore Section Half Way Through

Pioneering Spirit has completed installation of the 50% of the offshore section for the TurkStream offshore gas pipeline in the Black Sea.

According to the latest update, over 930 kilometer of the pipeline has been laid in total on the seabed of the Black Sea, divided over two strings.

Pioneering Spirit vessel passed 706 kilometer point for the first line, and for the second line 224 kilometers were installed in 2017.

Construction of the offshore section started in May 2017 by Alseas’ vessel Audacia. In June 2017, Pioneering Spirit took over to install the deep-water section. Pioneering Spirit has been working on the project continuously since then.

The TurkStream offshore gas pipeline will consist of two parallel gas pipelines stretching for 930 kilometers across the Black Sea, each with a diameter of 81 centimeters and an annual throughput capacity of 15.75 billion cubic meters.

One of the pipelines will cater for the Turkish market, while the other will stretch to the Turkish-European border to ensure reliable deliveries of Russian gas to south and south-east Europe.

In line with the schedule, first gas is expected to flow through TurkStream by the end of 2019.
