Vinci wins AU$60m pipeline construction contracts in Australia and Colombia

Vinci wins multiple construction projects in Australia and Colombia.

Vinci Construction subsidiary, Spiecapag has won three pipeline contracts in Australia and Colombia, worth AU$60 million ($33 million).

The Eastern Goldfield Pipeline project is a 300km gas pipeline, approximately 1,000km to the east of Perth and was awarded to joint venture partners Spiecapag and Lucas. The pipeline will cross a near-desert region to fuel an electrical power plant for the Sunrise Dam and Tropicana gold mines operated by AngloGold Ashanti. The work will be carried out between March and November 2015.

In Colombia, Ecopetrol has awarded a Spiecapag-led joint venture with Ismocol a contract for the construction of the first 37km section of an oil pipeline to the southeast of Bogota, with an option to construct an additional 40km section.

Also in Colombia, Pacific Stratus awarded the Golfo de Morrosquillo (CGM) consortium headed by Spiecapag a contract for a project to export natural gas. The project includes construction of an 80km onshore gas pipeline and a 4km offshore gas pipeline, as well as civil engineering for a maritime terminal and construction of its structures. The two projects are worth a total amount of US$180 million (£114 million).
