Spiecapag

Spiecapag provides full life-cycle support to the pipeline industry. It intervenes starting from project conception and financing assistance, to engineering,
procurement, construction, commissioning, operation and maintenance. This expertise covering onshore pipeline and related ancillary works such as pumping and compression stations, metering and regulation facilities, storage complexes and loading-unloading facilities. Since it constructed its first high-pressure pipeline in the Paris region in the 1920’s, Spiecapag has acquired unsurpassed experience with more than 50,000 km of pipelines and onshore infrastructures in more than 60 countries on all continents.
With more than 90 years of continuous experience and a fleet of equipment that it can mobilise rapidly to all points of the globe, Spiecapag has become a specialist in complex projects, from both a technical point of view for large diameters, and from a project execution standpoint, working in environmentally-sensitive areas like deserts, artic regions, mountainous zones, tropical rain forests, etc.

 

Offshore

Shallow water works

Fields of expertise:

  • Design and turnkey construction of offshore and coastal works (submarine pipelines, import and export terminals (CBM, SPM), moorings, wharfs and jetties).
  • Specialised works: trenching for submarine pipelines, pipeline landfalls, other special works.

Technologies:

  • Abyss remotely operated submarine excavator.
  • Max and Super Max marine excavators for shallow water trenching.
  • Masurca trenching system.

Geocean

For more than 30 years, Geocean has successfully executed marine works projects on all continents, in very diverse climatic conditions and with varying logistical challenges. Geocean performs turnkey projects under EPCI-type contracts or for public works contracts in the oil and gas, mining, chemical industries as well as on the public works market. It builds coastal structural works for power stations, desalination plants and water treatment plants.

Geocean stands out from its competitors through its ability to work also on landfalls in shallow-water zones, where it uses its line of specialised equipment developed in-house. Geocean owns and operates a fleet of marine assets, and has performed turnkey pipelaying operations and oil platform installations. Among its fleet, Geocean counts a pipelay barge dedicated to offshore oil and gas works, the Geocean Protis, equipped with a 500 t crane and S-lay systems.
Additionally, Geocean has developed expertise in marine renewable energies and performed deep sea water intake operations (–1,000 m) for SWAC systems (Sea Water Air Conditioning). Geocean devotes significant resources to innovation and to the development of specalised equipment, so that it can offer original and economical solutions to its clients.

Entrepose Drilling

HDI

Entrepose’s drilling activity combines the expertises of two entities: Entrepose Drilling and Horizontal Drilling International (HDI).

Entrepose Drilling performs deep drilling for the oil industry; high and medium enthalpy geothermal drilling. In addition, its activities comprise hydrocarbon and gas storage wells in saline cavities or aquifers, and providing well maintenance or plug and abandonment services. Beyond conventional onshore rigs, Entrepose Drilling possesses unique expertise, reinforced by a half-century of experience, in the operation of modern and automated hydraulic rigs that allow work to be performed all the while minimizing the impact on the environment, whether in remote areas or in urban surroundings on narrow platforms.

HDI is specialised in the trenchless installation of pipelines under natural or artificial obstacles (rivers and canals, dikes and levees, railways, highways, airfields, coastal zones, ridges and cliffs, etc.) by means of the Horizontal Directional Drilling method (HDD). With more than 2,000,000 meters of pipelines installed by HDD on all continents since 1984, HDI is a pioneer and recognized leader in its field of expertise. Likewise, the HDD method applied by HDI to the pipeline construction of marine outfalls in synergy with Geocean constitutes a competitive and innovative alternative to traditional trenching techniques to connect onshore and offshore facilities. Further advantages provided by to this technique are that permitting is facilitated and project timelines can be shortened, it is not affected by weather conditions and it ensures greater respect for the environment.
