Geoconsult has been awarded the work for performing a detailed route survey for the proposed MEDGAZ subsea gas pipeline. MEDGAZ S.A. is a consortium formed by CEPSA, Sonatrach, BP, TOTAL, Gaz de France, Iberdrola and Endesa.

MEDGAZ is planning to install two 24-inch pipelines across the Mediterranean Sea for transporting natural gas from Algeria to Europe with landfall on the southern coast of Spain near Almeria. The total offshore distance is 200km, and the central section of the pipeline reaches a maximum water depth of 2,160 m. The scope of work includes high-resolution geophysical survey to be performed both by ROV and the Hugin 3000-GC UUV system; visual survey along parts of the route as well as benthic sampling and detection of communication cables using the ROV.
