Vallourec Delivers Premium Line Pipe for Egina Field

Vallourec has started delivering premium line pipe for the offshore Egina field, operated by Total Upstream Nigeria.

The Egina oil field is located 130km off the coast of Nigeria, in 1,750 m water depth. The field is currently under development and the production is scheduled to begin at the end of 2017.

Vallourec has started delivering its first tons of premium subsea line pipe, out of a package of 24,000 tons that the Group has been awarded for this offshore project. 16,000 tons of flowlines will be used as production, water injection and gas export lines. Additional 8,000 tons of seamless line pipe will follow for a riser pipe-in-pipe construction.

Supporting local content

Vallourec is supplying the flowlines to Bell Oil & Gas, a Nigerian oil and gas services company. As part of the Nigerian Human Capacity Development program, Vallourec is providing training for young Nigerian engineers on pipe production and their applications. Consequently, Vallourec has proven to comply with the Nigerian local content requirements relating to this project.

Dominique Richardot, Director of Vallourec’s Pipe Project division, said:

“We are honored to participate in this complex offshore project and to demonstrate the Group’s leading position to deliver premium tubular solutions and services required to ensure the successful development of projects in the most challenging environments. By providing training to the Nigerian workforce, we also contribute to the development of the local content to this project.”
