Double Jointing/Welding Services Contract Awarded For Deep Panuke Gas Field

March 2010 Vol. 237 No. 3

CRC-Evans/Global Pipelines will provide onshore double jointing of production lines for the EnCana Deep Panuke natural gas field located 155 miles southeast of Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Acergy S.A., under contract to EnCana for subsea installation of 9 miles of natural gas pipeline and 0.9 miles of acid disposal lines, awarded Global Pipelines the double jointing project.

CRC-Evans/Global Pipelines will supply offshore welding services (personnel and welding equipment) to the Acergy Falcon offshore pipelay vessel for the 8.625-inch gas lines as well as the three-inch acid disposal lines.

CRC-Evans/Global Pipelines has set up a custom-built double-jointing facility for this project in Invergordon, Scotland. The clad pipes will be delivered to Invergordon where they will be double jointed to 12-meter lengths. The pipes will be transported to the coating yard.

The double-jointing operation at Invergordon began in November with offshore installation due in May.
