Saipem Ltd has been awarded the EPIC contract by Centrica Resources for the York gas field which comprises reservoirs in UKCS block 47 e in the Southern North Sea.

The project called for the installation of approx 34 km of 16 inch gas export pipeline, and 3 inch methanol piggy-back line from the York gas field to the Easington Gas Terminal.

Saipem UK Ltd has awarded Allseas Marine Contractors SA the installation of approximately 13 Km 16 inch + 3 inch pipeline as part of the York Development project. The pipeline installation will start near shore in a pre- dredged trench. During lay of the first kilometer the pipe will be pulled ashore.

Steel cofferdams have been installed on the beach. There will be a high cofferdam at the top of the beach, the top surface of which is above water level and will form the winch platform for pipe pulling.

This part of the project was performed by shallow water lay barge TOG MOR, assisted by ITC's AHT TYPHOON.
For five weeks, during June and July 2012, AHT TYPHOON performed anchor handling and towage services with TOG MOR under contract with Allseas.
