Tata Steel Scores North Sea Pipe Contract

Monday, July 1, 2019

Steelmaker Tata Steel said it has secured a contract to provide high frequency induction (HFI) line pipe for an oil and gas project northeast of Shetland in the UK North Sea.

The company will manufacture more than 10 kilometers of HFI line pipe from its 20” Mill in Hartlepool for ‘sleeve pipe application’ – housing smaller, critical pipelines – as part of a bundle system for the project.

The scope of work involves five different wall thicknesses and five different diameters and the contract duration is 28 weeks.

Barry Rust, Marketing Manager, Energy & Sustainability, said, “This latest contract award builds on our success in the North Sea where we have secured eight projects in just over a year and we look forward to further success as activity in the region improves.

“The stringent dimensional controls offered by our HFI process provides superior shape and 'weldability' for faster offshore welding, and our supply chain control ensures we can comply with even the tightest project schedules,” he said.

The company noted it has supplied more than one million metric tons of pipeline for oil and gas projects in the North Sea over 24 years, including in excess of 500,000 meters of reel installed pipe and more than £250 million ($316 million) invested in subcontracts for North Sea projects.
