Construction of a gas pipeline through the Strait of Magellan in Southern Argentina
Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. and Allseas Group S.A. have been appointed for the construction of a gas pipeline through the Strait of Magellan in Southern Argentina
The work consists of laying a new 24-inch undersea gas pipeline joining Cape Espiritu Santo and Cape Virgenes in waters outside the eastern mouth of the Strait of Magellan, Argentina.
The length of the undersea pipeline and shoreline sections is approximately 38 kilometers. The
water depth (70 meters), strong currents and high tidal conditions create a challenging operating environment. The pipeline is of significant strategic importance linking the gas fields in the south with the main gas network of Argentina
