TurkStream Project: 1st Line

Locations: The Netherlands, Bulgaria, Russia, UAE and Turkey

Project Overview

TurkStream starts on the Russian coast near the town of Anapa and runs over 930 km through the Black Sea to come ashore in the Thrace region of Turkey. TurkStream directly connects the
large gas reserves in Russia to the Turkish gas transportation network, to provide reliable energy supplies for Turkey, south and southeast Europe.

The offshore component of the system consists of two parallel pipelines running through the Black Sea. The pipelines enter the water near Anapa, on the Russian coast, and come ashore on the
Turkish coast in the Thrace region, near the town of Kiyikoy. From the receiving terminal in Kiyikoy, one of the two underground onshore pipelines will connect to the existing Turkish gas network at Luleburgaz. The other pipeline will continue to the Turkish-European border, where it ends.

TurkStream Work Scope

1st Line Only

Brunel was awarded contracts to set up a core staff team in The Netherlands and later project teams to monitor and supervise FEED and EPC contractors during the offshore pipeline construction phase, as well as landfall sites onshore Turkey and Russia.

In addition, Brunel provided a team in Sharjah to supervise a contractor during the EPC phase for Kiyikoy in Turkey and in Anapa, Russia to provide support during the construction phase.

Brunel also provided crews onboard the Pioneering Spirit and Audacia during offshore pipelay construction activities of up to 2,200 metres of water depth.
