Van Oord Offshore has signed a contract with client Rompetrol for the installation of an oil loading system in The Black Sea in Romania.
The contract has a value of Euros 56 million and the project will commence early in May and be completed before the end 2008.
The contract contains an Engineering, Procurement, Installation and Commisioning (EPIC) deal for the Midia Marine Terminal in Romania, and entails the installation of a Single Point Mooring (SPM) in the Black Sea.
The SPM will be used for oil loading by crude tankers of up to 160,000dwt and will be connected to an onshore refinery by a 8,700m long pipeline.
Van Oord will be responsible for the project management and all onshore and offshore installation activities.
The complete SPM system will be supplied by Bluewater Energy Services from the Netherlands.
Van Oord will mobilise one pulling winch and one trailing suction hopper dredger for the trench dredging works.
