DOF Subsea, a provider of integrated subsea services, has recently inked a new contract in the Mediterranean with Transmediterranean Pipeline Company Limited (TMPC) to undertake the pipeline inspection on the TMPC’s Pipeline System.
The inspection will take place in the third quarter of this year. The scope involves inspection of five submarine pipelines between Sicily and Tunisia and during the scope, DOF Subsea will survey over 750 km of pipeline.
DOF Subsea will deploy the survey vessel MV Geosund to complete the inspection work scope and pipeline intervention. The company previously completed a similar scope for TMPC in 2014.
Managing Director, Robert Gillespie, said “We are delighted to win this work with TMPC. We have a good relationship with the company, having successfully completed this inspection scope for them in the past, and we are looking forward to delivering on this scope again later this year.
Transmed is jointly-owned by Eni and Sonatrach. Transmed is active in leasing, managing and marketing of transport capacity of the gas pipelines owned by TMPC. These gas pipelines link Cap Bon’s compression station in Tunisia to the Italian gas pipeline network entry point at Mazara del Vallo, Sicily.
