Sandvik supplies duplex to W. Africa

Sandvik Steel has received orders for nearly half a million metres of duplex stainless steel tubing, for hydraulic and chemical injection lines for subsea umbilical cables, for ExxonMobil’s Kizomba project and the Zafiro project, both in West Africa. Ordered by Kvaerner Oilfield Products, for fabrication in Norway, tubes, in various outside diameters, were chosen by ExxonMobil to be supplied in Sandvik’s SAF 2507 stainless steel – the super duplex grade which combines high strength with seawater corrosion resistance. Tubes are due for delivery up to September 2002 and will be supplied in butt-welded, long lengths on reels.
