SIAD Bulgaria, part of the SIAD Group, has provided technical gases for the construction of a major pipeline project under the Black Sea.

The TurkSteam gas pipeline, when completed, will consist of two lines and have the capacity to transport 31.5 billion cubic metres worth of natural gas from Russia.

Each line will have the throughput capacity of 15.75 billion cubic metres of gas per year, with the first line intended for Turkey and the second line designated for south and south-eastern Europe.

SIAD said yesterday it had successfully participated in the construction of the offshore segment of TurkStream, delivering carbon dioxide, argon, propone, oxygen and nitrogen to Pioneering Spirit.

Pioneering Spirit is the world’s largest construction vessel and was responsible for constructing the deep-water section of TurkStream.

Swiss offshore pipe-laying and subsea construction company Allseas Group selected SIAD Bulgaria as the main supplier of technical gases.

The construction of TurkSteam is now entering its final stage. The works are ahead of schedule, having completed the offshore section of the gas pipeline this week, a month early.
