Norway-based Nova People, together with Aberdeen-based Fulkrum and Poland-based EKO-INWEST, will provide specialized personnel to support survey, construction and inspection activities across both offshore pipelay and landfall operations.

The 528-mile (850-km) bidirectional Baltic Pipe Project gives Denmark, Poland and Sweden direct access to Norway’s North Sea gas and moves Poland closer to its goal of becoming eastern Europe’s gas hub.

The project will deliver up to 353 Bcf (10 Bcm) per year upon expected completion in 2022 at a projected cost of $1.88 billion. Poland and Denmark are financing construction, along with a $243 million contribution from the European Union.  

“We have an extensive track-record working on both subsea and pipeline workscopes globally, and we are delighted to combine with Nova People’s recruitment expertise, to work with Gaz-Systems and support the Baltic Pipe Project,” said Owen Gibbons, Commercial Director, Fulkrum Technical Resources.  

Gaz-System S.A. is responsible for the 36” pipeline from landfall at Pogorzelica in Poland to Faxe in Denmark, where Energinet will take it across Denmark and finalize the Pipeline route with a tie-in to Europipe.
