“Regarding the South Stream project, Saipem announces that it has received a ‘Notification of suspension of Marine Spread activities’ from the client. The notification covers all vessels currently engaged in activities related to pipe laying,” the company said.
“At present it is not possible to outline the economic impact of the Saipem’s business suspension, as both the duration of the suspension and the client’s ultimate decision on the project are unknown.”
A representative for OMV, an Austrian partner for the closed project, told PRIME the company is still carrying consultations with Gazprom on the South Stream. “We are in contact with Gazprom,” the representative said.
