Vallourec line pipe solutions for TEN project

Vallourec will supply premium line pipes and welding services for the TEN ultra-deepwater oil and gas project, operated by Tullow Oil in Ghana, and executed by a consortium of Subsea 7 and Technip.
Vallourec will provide Subsea 7 with seamless offshore line-pipe including anti-corrosion coating for 15,000t in all. The pipes will be dedicated to production flowlines (pipe-in-pipe system by ITP InTerPipe) and gas export line. Deliveries are currently in progress. Vallourec’s subsidiary Serimax, an international welding company, will accomplish associated welding services for the double jointing operations related to the production pipe in pipe and the gas export lines. Those operations are to start during the summer 2014.
Dominique Richardot, managing director of Vallourec’s Pipe and SURF activities, declared, “Vallourec’s involvement in several parts of the TEN project demonstrates our ability to generate added value for our clients through flexibility, synergies and close cooperation. By providing an important number of non-standard pipe dimensions, we help Subsea 7 facilitate the pipe-in-pipe design optimisation, and thus reduce total costs.”

Vallourec is a key supplier for Subsea 7 and recently delivered line pipe products for Subsea 7’s BG Knarr Project in Norway. This new contract for the TEN Project reinforces the existing cooperation between the two parties.
