Sicim Awarded its first Onshore Pipeline Project in Guyana
Sicim is further expanding its footprint in South America by establishing a new area of operations in Guyana. In April 2023, Esso Exploration and Production Guyana Limited awarded the contract for the “C6 – Onshore Pipeline Construction”, as part of its role in the “Gas to Energy Project” in Guyana.
The contract has been signed by the Joint Venture of Sicim Guyana Inc. with its local partner GAICO Construction and General Services Inc., a well-known construction player in Guyana. The project is part of an outstanding development for Guyana, consisting of the construction of a pipeline connecting the offshore Destiny and Unity FPSO vessels to an onshore integrated plant (including an NGL plant and power plant), also allowing development of future industries. The 12-inch pipeline corridor is approximately 25 kilometres long, from the land side of the shore with associated Shore Crossing Valve Site and Receiving Facility at each end of the line. The project will largely involve local manpower in compliance with Guyana’s Local Content Law for preserving local people’s employment and professional growth in business, supported by Sicim’s senior pipeliners. The final tie-in between the onshore and the offshore sections is scheduled in September 2024, to be executed by Sicim.
