South Stream Transport B.V. and Allseas Group have recently signed a contract for the construction of the second string of the TurkStream gas pipeline’s offshore section. The document was signed in Amsterdam and as an option included in the construction contract for the pipeline’s first string, which was inked in 2016.
Similarly to the construction of TurkStream’s first offshore string, Allseas plans to use Pioneering Spirit to lay over 900 km of pipes across the seabed for the second string of the pipeline.
The aim of the TurkStream project is to export gas from Russia, across the Black Sea to Turkey. The first string of the pipeline is intended to deliver gas to Turkish consumers, while the second string will transport the exports further, delivering the gas to southern and southeastern Europe.
Each string of TurkStream will have the throughput capacity of 15.75 billion m3/y of gas.
