Tata Steel, one of Europe's leading steel producers, has secured three separate contracts with TechnipFMC for work in the UK North Sea, further building on the relationship between the two companies.

The scope of work includes the provision of high frequency induction (HFI) line pipe for carrier application and for both spool and pipe-in-pipe systems. The HFI line pipe will be manufactured in Tata Steel’s Hartlepool 20 in. pipe mill, and will be installed by TechnipFMC.

The three different projects span from the Northern North Sea to the Central North Sea. Two of the three will see Tata Steel provide more than 16 km of 10 in. carrier pipes, with three-layer polypropylene coating for anti-corrosion and mechanical protection, including weld-on pads to allow fitting of sacrificial bracelet anodes. The third project requires several kilometres of 14 in. carrier pipes and 10 in. spool pipes.

Barry Rust, Marketing Manager, Energy & Sustainability, said: “The contract awards are testament to Tata Steel’s reputation and experience, both in the North Sea and with TechnipFMC.

“We look forward to working with TechnipFMC on the coming projects, further developing our valued relationship and providing the highest quality pipeline to our clients.”

Tata Steel has supplied more than one million t of pipeline for oil and gas projects in the North Sea for more than 20 years – including in excess of 500 000 m of reel installed pipe and more than £250 million invested in subcontracts for North Sea projects.
