Vallourec awarded important offshore contract by Total in Brunei
7 March 2014 – Vallourec has been awarded a $100 million contract for the supply of premium pipes with VAM® 21 connections for the offshore ML-South Project, operated by Total’s affiliate Total E&P Borneo in Brunei. After a successful exploration campaign started in 2007, Total has a drilling program starting with 6 development wells from 2015. ML-South is located in Block B offshore Brunei with water depth of approximately 65 meters, and is expected to hold important gas and condensate reserves.
Most challenging operating conditions
The development wells will be producing at depth greater than 5,000m, in a highly corrosive environment and High Pressure/ High Temperature (HP/HT) conditions.
These conditions position the project at a new field development frontier, and consolidate Vallourec’s leadership position in supplying premium solutions to the oil & gas industry operating in very complex environments.
