Vallourec offshore line pipe contracts for Brazil

Vallourec has won two major orders to supply line pipes for phases 6 and 8 of the Buzios oil field development operated by Petrobras. These orders are in addition to the contract previously won for phase 7, representing 48,000 tonnes of line pipe.
Buzios is one of the world’s largest deepwater fields, located off the Brazilian coast in the pre-salt Campos Basin. It accounts for 25% of the Brazilian oil company’s production alone.
The equipment ordered from Vallourec for phases 6, 7 and 8 of the project includes 346 km of subsea line pipe for the risers and flowlines in the Subsea Umbilicals Risers and Flowlines (SURF) package. These ultra-premium line pipes will be mechanically lined pipes (MLPs) with CRA (Corrosion Resistant Alloy) cladding.
Vallourec has already delivered Buzios 7. Deliveries of developments 6 and 8 are now underway and will continue until the end of 2023.
