Tekfen Consortium and Kharampur Export Gas Pipeline Project
Tekfen Construction and Rusfen LLC (sister company and owned 100% by Tekfen Contruction) established a consortium and were awarded a contract by Kharampurneftegaz LLC in December 2019, for the construction of a 90 km pipeline, namely the Export Gas Pipeline (EGP) in the Yamal-Nenets region of the Russian Federation.
This project is within the framework of the “Kharampur gas deposit construction project implementation and development of the Cenomanian deposit and the Turonian deposit section”. The construction of this pipeline is complicated because of existing soil conditions and the arctic climate conditions of the region. During the winter, the temperature sometimes drops below -50◦C and in the summer it reaches 30◦C. The pipeline route passes through swamp areas and permafrost ground formations, which forces the pipeline construction works to be performed only in the winter season with the construction of special winter roads or wooden roads, since the bearing capacity of the soil does not allow work without special provisions.
