Acergy is to install the 24-in. pipeline, associated jumper, pipeline end termination, and tie-ins to an onshore pipeline in 40 m of water by second quarter 2010 using its Polaris, Hawk, and Legend vessels.
The US$110mn contract relates to the Block 17/18 GEP Phase 2 Project.

The plant will also process and treat as much as 125 MMcfd of gas for the domestic market—all of which is scheduled to start in early 2012.
