Aberdeen-based Dominion Gas will become the main supplier of industrial gas for the Nord Stream Project in a deal worth upwards of Euro 2 million.
The pipeline is expected to supply enough gas for more than 26 million households.
Dominion was awarded the work by Saipem which secured the contract for all pipelay activities – worth more than €1billion – in June 2008. The deal involves Dominion supplying all welding gases and equipment for construction of the pipeline. The company will operate from the Swedish project based in Norrköping for two years.
Doug Crighton managing director of Dominion Gas said: “As a result of this contract we have already begun investing in new equipment to meet the demands of the project. Dominion has now been the primary industrial gas supplier for two of the world’s longest subsea pipelines.”
