Share on Facebook

Tata Steel has been awarded a multi-million pound contract for the Maersk Culzean project located in the UK central North Sea – one of the largest discoveries in the region in the last 10 years.

The company will be responsible for providing more than 18 thousand tonnes of carbon steel welded line pipe with the core element of the scope of supply encompassing a 22” (53km) gas export pipeline which will tie into the existing Central Area Transmission System (CATS).

The gas export line will be manufactured at Tata Steel’s UOE LSAW pipe mill located in Hartlepool, UK with BSR Pipeline Services, a joint venture with Tata Steel, providing the coating services.

Richard Broughton, commercial manager, exploration and production, Tata Steel, commented: “We worked very closely with Maersk, to ensure that the stringent technical requirements were understood. Our technical capability to manufacture low temperature pipelines with tight dimensional control is well proven, and I am confident that this was a key consideration in the tender evaluation. Tata Steel has a proven global track record of managing complex project packages.

“Tata Steel has executed projects of this nature in the past with extreme precision and accuracy, ensuring achievement of project objectives and client goals. We are excited to be working with Maersk and Subsea7 to ensure the same outcome on this project.”

Work is due to start in September 2015 with an overall project duration for Tata Steel of 18 months.
