Corinth Pipeworks has secured a contract from Woodside Energy, the operator of the Trion deepwater field offshore Mexico, to manufacture and supply  approximately 118 kilometers of High Frequency Welded (HFW) steel pipes.

The Trion field is located in the Perdido Fold Belt in Mexican waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Situated approximately 180km off the Mexican coastline and 30km south of the US-Mexico maritime border,

Trion represents a pioneering greenfield development.  It is poised to be the first production site from Mexico’s deepwater with potential for future discoveries to be tied back to Trion’s facilities. 

Trion is an alliance between Woodside Petróleo Operaciones de México (60%, operator) and Pemex Exploración y Producción (40%).         

The development involves a wet tree subsea system connected to an infield floating production unit (FPU), which will be linked to a floating storage and offloading (FSO) unit, ensuring efficient extraction and processing of the resources.

The pipes will be manufactured at Corinth Pipeworks’ state-of-the-art facilities. The scope of supply also includes the application of external coating and concrete weight coating (CWC), all of which will be performed at the same location as the pipe manufacturing.

“We are delighted to be selected by Woodside Energy for the Trion offshore project. This award underscores our commitment to delivering high-quality solutions that meet the stringent demands of deepwater energy developments. We look forward to contributing to this groundbreaking project,” said Ilias Bekiros, General Manager at Corinth Pipeworks.
