In November 2019, the oil ministry of Equatorial Guinea awarded a $90–100 million contract to Saipem to build a 70 km subsea pipeline connecting Noble Energy's Alen offshore gas platform to the Punta Europa petrochemical hub on Bioko Island. The pipeline would transport 950 million cubic feet of gas per day, and would start operation in early 2021.[1][2]
