SapuraKecana has been awarded a US$125.9 million contract for the Trans Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline (TANAP) in the Turkish Straits.
The company will supply engineering, procurement, construction, and the installation of offshore pipelines and fibre optic cables in the Dardanelles Strait in the Sea of Marmara.
Two 36 inch pipelines approximately 35 km in total length, as well as two 48- and 192-core cables running parallel to the pipelines, will be designed and pre-commissioned.
Work on the contract is expected to start later this year and be completed within a year.
The pipeline will facilitate gas supply to several South Eastern European countries, including Bulgaria, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, and Croatia.
SapuraKencana is based in Malaysia and employs over 13,000 people across 20 countries.
Earlier this year the company was awarded a US$113 million contract for the procurement and construction of an 18-km pipeline for Pemex in Ciudad del Carmen, Mexico.
