France-based Technip has been awarded by the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) AG a Project Management Consultancy (PMC) Services contract.
The PMC contract awarded to Technip will cover the onshore portion of the pipeline from Greece to Albania and in Italy. The services will include the overall project and site management, procurement and subcontracting for all the EPC packages throughout the engineering, procurement and construction phases, as well as warranty management and the project close-out. The project completion is scheduled for the first quarter of 2020.
The services will be mainly performed at TAP's headquarters in Baar, Switzerland, and Technip's office in Rome, Italy. Other project centres will be operating in Greece, Albania and Italy.
Riccardo Moizo, Senior Vice President of Technip PMC, stated: "This contract is an important milestone for Technip PMC. With this award, Technip will be able to reaffirm its strong project management capabilities, through the execution of a very prestigious project."
TAP will transport natural gas from the giant Shah Deniz II field in Azerbaijan to Europe. The approximately 870 km long pipeline will connect with the Trans Anatolian Pipeline (TANAP) at the Turkish-Greek border at Kipoi, cross Greece and Albania and the Adriatic Sea, before coming ashore in Southern Italy.
