San Donato Milanese (Milan), 3 May 2011 – Saipem has been awarded new E&C Offshore contracts worth in excess of $1 billion in China and Brazil.
 
The offshore activities for both the contracts will be performed mainly by the newly-built and highly-specialized Saipem FDS 2 vessel, in different periods between 2012 and 2013.

The scope of work includes the engineering, procurement, construction and installation of two 22 inch diameter 79-kilometres-long pipelines, umbilicals, along with the transport and installation of a subsea production system linking the wellheads to a processing platform.
 
The Liwan 3-1 gas field, is located in the Block 29/26 in the South China Sea in 1500 metres water depth and approximately 300 kilometres south of Hong Kong. It represents the first offshore field developed in deep water in the South China Sea.
