Allseas Returns to Eastern Mediterranean for Tamar Expansion Project

Allseas will return to the East Mediterranean in the third quarter of 2024 to execute the installation scope for phase one of the Tamar expansion project.

Solitaire  and Oceanic  will carry out the work comprising approximately 150km of 20 inch pipeline from the Tamar field to the Tamar platform and a mix of small and large subsea structures in water depths ranging from 240m to 1660m.

Discovered in 2009, development of the Tamar gas reservoir was fast-tracked to meet local demand for natural gas. Allseas played a key role in the original development, installing over 350km of pipeline between 2010 and 2011 for then operator Noble Energy Mediterranean Ltd.

 

 

Allseas’ scope also covers the design, fabrication and installation of two PLETs, four jumpers and 19 crossing structures, installation of umbilicals and pre-commissioning the pipeline system (flooding, gauging, testing, dewatering and nitrogen purging).

The gas pipeline is planned to meet the growing demand for reliable energy in the East Mediterranean.

Tamar is a producing conventional gas field located in ultra-deepwater in Israel. The field is located in block I/12 Tamar, with water depth of 5,588 feet (1.7km).
