Award of a contract for an offshore gas pipeline linking the Argo and Cassiopea fields in Italy

A €300 million offshore E&C contract for the transport and installation of an offshore gas pipeline linking the four wells of the Argo and Cassiopea fields to the Sicilian coast has been awarded to Enimed, a subsidiary of Eni SpA

The 14″ gas pipeline, with a length of 60 km and a maximum water depth of 660 mt, will be laid by Castorone and Castoro 10, two of the highest caliber laying vessels in the world. In addition, umbilicals connecting the Cassiopea wells to the Prezioso platform will be installed by the Saipem 3000 vessel.

The Argo and Cassiopea Fields

Look for construction leads

The Italian gas supply has recently been impacted by the geopolitical scenario. In this context, the Argo and Cassiopea project represents a strategic and complementary infrastructure. This positions Saipem as one of the key contractors able to effectively support customers. Additionally, they help provide a practical solution to the current energy crisis. The project in the Sicilian region of Gela began construction last year.

Saipem is a cutting-edge technological and engineering platform for the design, construction and operation of complex infrastructures and factories. Saipem has always focused on technological innovation. The company is now committed to leading the energy transition alongside its customers.

This uses increasingly digitized tools, technologies and processes that have been created from the ground up with environmental sustainability in mind. It is also listed on the Milan Stock Exchange and works in 70 different countries around the world. The company has 32,000 employees of 130 different nationalities.

Other projects under Eni

Eni is making rapid progress in implementing its local market gas supply plans from its recent deepwater discovery of Baleine in Côte d’Ivoire.

The company also has a contract with state-owned oil and gas companies in Egypt. The aim is to assess the economic viability of producing green and blue hydrogen while storing CO2 in depleted natural gas reserves.
