Bonatti Wins Coastal Gaslink Pipe Contract
The Canadian subsidiary of Bonatti Group, Pacific Atlantic Pipeline Construction, has won a contract to build a part of the coastal gaslink project in British Columbia (BC), it said June 20. The final award of the C$500mn ($380mn) contract is subject to Anglo-Dutch major Shell taking a positive final investment decision (FID) to proceed with its Kitimat liquefaction project. That is expected this year.
The whole 670-km, 48-in pipeline, which will feed LNG Canada's facilities, will cross mountain ranges while avoiding damage to the flora and fauna but meeting local content requirements.
The National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (NGC) NGC’s HSSE strategy is reflective and supportive of the organisational vision to become a leader in the global energy business.
The scope of work encompasses construction and testing of two out of eight sections of the pipeline. Bonatti said it was chosen based on "TransCanada’s core principles of safety, environmental stewardship and stakeholder engagement along with its financial strength, technical design expertise, and contract competitiveness."
A joint venture between Macro Enterprises and Spiecapag Canada announced yesterday they had won a contract for another quarter of the line, again subject to FID, but for a higher sum.
