General Manager of Transgaz, Ion Sterian and General Manager of Black Sea Oil & Gas (BSOG), Mark Beacom, on Friday signed the order to start the works for the two companies’ projects in order to take over the production from the Midia Natural Gas Development Project to the National System of Transport (SNT).
The Transgaz project “Extension of SNT Vadu-T1” consists of the construction of a pipeline designed to transport natural gas at a pressure of 55 bar, in a total length of approximately 24.37 km, which will connect the Black Sea Shore with the National Transport System – the pipeline T1 on the Black Sea shore – Corbu – Săcele – Cogealac – Grădina. The estimated completion date is 2021.
The Midia project consists of the excavation of five production wells (one probe on the Doina deposit and four probes on the Ana deposit), a submarine assembly of production on the Doina deposit which will be connected through an 18 km pipeline to the automated production platform located on Ana deposit. A 121 km submarine pipeline will ensure the transportation of gas from the Ana platform to the shore, where 4.1 km of underground pipeline will follow to the new gas treatment station. The treated gases will be delivered through the gas measuring station to the SNT operated by Transgaz. It is estimated that gas production will begin in the first quarter of 2021.
