The pipes will be dedicated to production flowlines (pipe-in-pipe system by ITP InTerPipe) and gas export line

Vallourec will provide Subsea 7 with seamless offshore line-pipe including anti-corrosion coating for a total of 15,000 tonnes. 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, commented: “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 optimization, and thus reduce total costs. Moreover, thanks to our lean logistics, our performing welding services, as well as our strong execution team, we offer a full support to our client to efficiently conduct this offshore project in Ghana.”
