Leighton Offshore, a subsidiary of Australia’s largest project development and contracting group Leighton, in consortium with Boskalis Offshore has won a transportation, installation and dredging contract from Shell Eastern Petroleum for its project located in Singapore.
Royal Boskalis Westminster, a leading global services provider operating in the dredging, maritime infrastructure and maritime services sectors, said the contract involves replacement of a part of the single point mooring (SPM) 48 subsea pipeline near Bukom Island. It is part of Shell’s planned maintenance work.
Leighton Offshore CEO Boyd Merrett and Boskalis regional director Neil Haworth said, "We are pleased to be a part of this project with a world class client like Shell. As with all projects, safety, environment, stakeholder and local authority liaison is paramount."
"These are all core values and strengths of Leighton and Boskalis and the consortium is united to deliver this important project in line with our values and commitment," he added.
Work will commence immediately on engineering, planning and procurement. The project scope includes cleaning of the existing SPM Buoy, Plem, Hoses and pipeline; transportation and removal; dredging; and installation.
The project will be delivered while adhering to stringent safety standards and environmental considerations, said the duo.
“Leighton and Boskalis have strong track records in offshore installation, maintenance and dredging works in Asia, and we look forward to working with Shell to deliver this project and build on a successful track record” they added.-TradeArabia News Service
