Global Begins Pipeline Repairs Off Indonesia

March 2009 Vol. 236 No. 3

PT Transportasi Gas Indonesia (Transgasindo) awarded Global Industries’ wholly owned subsidiary PT Global Industries Asia Pacific Pte Ltd., a contract to provide the replacement and zero downtime repair of a 28-inch diameter pipeline. The contract is valued at $75 million and is scheduled for completion in April.

Global will use its pipelay barge Comanche, assisted by additional support vessels, to install the new 14-mile section on the Grissik-Singapore gas transmission pipeline. The project includes eight hot tap installations to tie the new pipeline to the existing pipeline. The repair will not interrupt gas flow.
