TechnipFMC orders pipes for North Sea projects from Tata Steel
Steel producer Tata Steel has secured three separate contracts with TechnipFMC for work in the UK North Sea.
The scope of work includes the provision of High Frequency Induction (HFI) line pipe for carrier application and for both spool and pipe-in-pipe systems. The HFI line pipe will be manufactured in Tata Steel’s Hartlepool 20” pipe mill, and will be installed by TechnipFMC, Tata Steel said on Monday.
The three different projects span from the Northern North Sea to the Central North Sea.
Two of the three will see Tata Steel provide more than 16 kilometers of 10” carrier pipes, with three layer polypropylene coating for anti-corrosion and mechanical protection, including weld on pads to allow fitting of sacrificial bracelet anodes.
The third project requires several kilometers of 14” carrier pipes and 10” spool pipes.
Barry Rust, Marketing Manager, Energy & Sustainability, said: “The contract awards are testament to Tata Steel’s reputation and experience, both in the North Sea and with TechnipFMC.
“We look forward to working with TechnipFMC on the coming projects, further developing our valued relationship and providing the highest quality pipeline to our clients.”
Tata Steel has supplied more than one million tonnes of pipeline for oil and gas projects in the North Sea for more than 20 years – including in excess of 500,000 meters of reel installed pipe and more than £250 million invested in subcontracts for North Sea projects.
