Punj Lloyd-Limak JV wins TANAP pipeline contract

Punj Lloyd-Limak JV wins TANAP pipeline contract

A joint venture (JV) between Punj Lloyd and Limak has been awarded a contract to construct a 459 km section of the 48 inch diameter TANAP Gas Pipeline in Turkey.

The 1,841 km Trans Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline Project (TANAP) is designed to transport natural gas produced in the Shah Deniz 2 field and other fields in Azerbaijan and its neighbours, through to Turkey and Europe.

Punj Lloyd and Limak’s US$409 million contract is for the second phase of construction (Spread 4), from the new Eskisehir Compressor Station to the tie-in point of the Trans-Adriatic Pipeline (TAP). The spread will traverse areas around major cities such as Eskisehir, Bursa, Bal€±kesir, Canakkale and Edirne. The terrain ranges from lowland to high rocky mountain ranges with steep slopes, deep forest, agricultural fields, numerous river and road/track crossings, environmental sensitive and archaeological areas. The elevations are up to 1,394 m for this pipeline spread.

Punj Lloyd has said that as TANAP traverses environmentally sensitive regions, reinstatement of rivers, conservation of archaeological discoveries and ecosystems, and innovative waste management practices may need to be employed.

The scope of works also includes 10 block valve stations, pigging facilities (two within compressor stations, two at pigging stations), and tie-ins with metering stations.

Punj Lloyd President and CEO – Pipelines and Tankage Atul Jain said “This is the second project for the Punj Lloyd-Limak JV in Turkey. In laying the Baku – Tbilisi – Ceyhan Pipeline, popularly known as the “÷pipeline of the century’ in Turkey and Georgia, the Punj Lloyd-Limak JV was awarded the “÷Best Contractor’s Award’. We were then the only Indian contractor to execute the transnational pipeline, and even now I am proud to state that we are the only Indian company to win a TANAP pipeline contract. With our extensive knowledge of the region’s topography and our internationally recognised best practices, I am confident of executing this pipeline in the given timeframe of 35 months.”
