Boskalis Wins Trenching Contract in Abu Dhabi

Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. has won a contract from the National Petroleum Construction Company of Abu Dhabi, UAE for dredging work related to the installation of an offshore gas pipeline of the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company as well as to an existing offshore gas pipeline.

The activities are due to start in the first quarter of 2016 and will be executed in phases with completion expected in the second half of 2017.

Boskalis will dredge a trench for the installation of the new offshore gas pipeline over a total distance of more than 50 kilometers between Das Island and Ras Al Qila onshore Abu Dhabi.

For this project a medium-sized trailing suction hopper dredger and a large cutter suction dredger will be deployed as well as backhoe dredgers for dredging in shallow waters.

Following its installation, the pipeline will be backfilled.

In addition, Boskalis will be backfilling an existing offshore pipeline with sand over a total distance of 34 kilometers with a trailing suction hopper dredger.
