Vallourec to supply line pipes for Buzios oil field

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 a total of 48,000 tonnes of line pipe.

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.

These orders are the last to be produced in and delivered from Vallourec’s plants in Germany. The optional quantities that are intended to be added as part of these three projects will be made at the Group’s state-of-the-art PQF (“Premium Quality Finishing”) plant in Jeceaba (Minas Gerais).
