Pipelayer finished laying Turkish Stream competitor


The Saipem Castoro sei pipe laying platform has completed the construction of a section of the Trans-Adriatic gas pipeline that runs along the bottom of the sea. The project will allow transporting about 10 billion cubic meters of gas from Azerbaijan to the countries of the European Union.


Now, to start deliveries of "blue fuel" through the "Southern Gas Corridor" to Italy, it remains only to carry out small technical work. The gas pipeline, therefore, is a direct competitor to the Russian Turkish Stream.

Further, Castoro sei will be used in the construction of the Baltic Gas Pipeline to supply fuel from Norway to Poland, work on which, according to Polish media, will begin in the near future. This pipeline will compete with another gas supplier from Russia, Nord Stream-2.

At the moment, according to Marinetraffic and Myshiptracking resources, which track ship movements in real time, the Castoro sei platform, moving around Sicily, is moving towards Rotterdam, where it plans to arrive on May 31. In Rotterdam, there is one of the bases of Saipem.

Castoro sei took part in the installation of the pipeline for the first Nord Stream along the bottom of the Baltic. It was built in 1978, and it was specially converted to work with the Russian gas pipeline, erecting about 80 percent of its underwater part.

      And harsh comments.

      Gazprom recalls the third energy package - and requires half the power for itself.

    10 billion cubic meters? Competitor? There are dozens of such competitors.
    By the way, why doesn’t anyone tell us that pipelines are not profitable and generally yesterday? Or is it only Russian concerns? Azerbaijani and Polish pipelines - are they different?

      What are you enjoying! Russia sells irreplaceable resources for the currency that the current Popandopulo draws. And the creative managers of Gazprom have a complete encopres, in a simple dristun way. Managed around. In addition to cutting money, no miracles. hi

    As far as I remember, 75% in the Russian gas pipe.

    Lack of brain. What can you do is for life.
    Irreplaceable resources cannot lie in the pantry forever. It’s like in a fairy tale - a deer runs and claws a hoof. And GOLD. In the end, it will fail to death.
    Natural gas, you know, lies not only in Russia. It is millions of times more everywhere, and in the thick of the oceans too. In the form of frozen ice. We will not sell - others will sell. We will not get it in normal deposits familiar to man, they will get it in shale, or the same ice. Nobody dies. But, such, sitting on sacks of gold (gas, oil, aluminum, molybdenum, etc.) will die, and have not built a normal modern industry for themselves. For the construction of which you need the same loot that you missed. So sit in the cave and burn the torch.

    We make bets. To cross the existing (laid) pipeline, the permission of the owner of this pipeline to this very intersection of the newly laid pipeline is necessary. Will Gazprom give it or not? I put on what will give.

      Why bets on a long-past match? Gazprom agreed on the intersection with the joint venture back in December.

    I wonder how the norms of energy package 3 apply to this gas pipeline. In accordance with it, other suppliers, for example, Russia, can connect to it.
