Offshore energy

The long term growing demand for energy is driving an increase in oil and gas exploration and production, as well as the need for renewable energy solutions. With safety as our core value, Boskalis provides a unique range of offshore services. Realizing projects in remote locations – with heightened environmental focus – is one of our specialties. We deliver services throughout the oil and gas life cycle - from exploration to production right through to decommissioning. We cover maritime and subsea transport, installation and inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) services.

Bridge construction, Stralsund

SMIT’s 1,200 tonnes sheerlegs Taklift 7 completed a major German bridge building programme during 2006. The sheerlegs had spent several months at the new Stralsund Bridge, on the German Baltic coast. This suspension bridge links the mainland with the island of Rügen.

Pipeline construction, Mumbai Highfields to Uran Trunkline

The Mumbai High Fields to Uran Trunkline Project is situated near Mumbai (Bombay) in India. ONGC Ltd (Oil & Natural Gas Corporation) has constructed two new pipeline connections from the Mumbai High Fields to Uran over a total length of 204 kilometers. These new pipelines have been constructed in order to replace the existing Bombay High Fields to Uran Trunkline, which had already completed more than 25 years of successful operation and had surpassed its design life. The new pipelines are a 30" oil pipeline and a 28" gas pipeline.

Construction gas pipeline
Beachfield Upstream
Development

The BUD project entailed the construction of a 66 kilometer, 36" gas pipeline, 63 kilometers offshore and 3 kilometers onshore underground to the treatment facilities. The offshore pipeline runs from the east coast at Beachfield (Rustville), Guayaguayare, to the 'Cassia B' platform complex. At the NGC Abyssinia facilities, 3 kilometers off Beachfield, a new sludge catcher has been developed to separate the liquid or condensate from the natural gas. The condensate is separated from water and metered. The station is also designed to control the pressure of gas, as it enters into the land gas transmission system. NGC's existing 30" and 24" gas pipelines have also been diverted to the new Abyssinia sludge catcher.

Construction drilling island and ice barriers, Kazakhstan

Agip Kazakhstan North Caspian Operating Company B.V. (Agip KCO), a consortium of eight leading oil companies, is active in the northern section of the Caspian Sea. The gas and oil reserves in this area were mapped out in 1998 and 1999. To allow for their exploitation, Boskalis International has created an artificial island measuring 225 x 225 meters, and underwater berms, for Agip KCO. Four years later, the time was ripe for the construction of the drilling island and ice barriers. Once they were in place, Agip KCO could start to extract and distribute the oil reserves.

Seabed preparations, Changi Outfall

The Public Utilities Board implemented the Deep Tunnel Sewerage System as a long-term solution to meet the needs for sewerage water collection, treatment and disposal to help maintain Singapore’s clean and healthy environment. In phase one of the Deep Tunnel Sewerage System, the Changi Water Reclamation Plant was constructed in the east of Singapore, from which the Changi Outfall was subsequently constructed. Treated effluent from the water treatment plant will flow through outfall pipelines and be discharged through series of diffusers, dispersing the effluent in the seawater. Boskalis International was awarded the contract for the Changi Outfall in 2002 and formed a joint venture with Archirodon to construct the project.

Heavy lift operations, Rion Antirion bridge

The Rion Antirion bridge, a 2.3 km long cable stayed bridge, consisting of 4 pylons from which the bridge deck is suspended. SMIT was involved in two phases of the project. During the construction of the pylons, SMIT carried out the management for the tow-out and positioning. For the installation of the steel components SMIT carried out the heavy lift operations.
