The most demanding works on the 750-meter long offshore section of the Omišalj-Zlobin gas pipeline in Croatia have been completed by laying the pipes on the bottom of the Tihi kanal near Omišalj on the island of Krk.
This was technically the most complex activity on the construction of the 16.7 kilometres long gas pipeline.
The works on the construction of the Omišalj-Zlobin gas pipeline, which began in December last year, are proceeding according to the planned dynamics. At the same time, works are being performed along the entire route of the gas pipeline, from the future gas node Zlobin to the future gas node Omišalj.
So far, the entire trench has been excavated and prepared and about 80 per cent of pipes have already been laid into the trench and backfilled. The works are also being carried out on the previously mentioned gas nodes and on Voz and Bobuši line break stations.
The completion of the construction of the Omišalj-Zlobin gas pipeline, a 430-million kuna (57 million euros) worth investment, is planned by the end of the year so that when the LNG terminal becomes operational, the delivery of gas from the terminal is ensured.
