Corinth to supply pipes for deepwater GoM

Murphy Exploration & Production Company – USA, a subsidiary of Murphy Oil Corporation will operate the project located in deepwater US Gulf of Mexico.

The agreement covers approximately 30 km of 16 in. HFW linepipe to be used for the subsea export pipeline which will transport gas from the King’s Quay Floating Production System (FPS) to an existing pipeline system located in the Green Canyon in water depth of approximately 1250 m. It is one of the deepest ever reel-lay, subsea projects to utilise HFW linepipe for a flowline application.

The HFW pipes will be manufactured and coated in ultra-long lengths at Corinth’s facility in Greece and delivered directly to Subsea 7’s spoolbase in Ingleside, Texas for fabrication and subsequent reel-lay installation.

This award is another significant milestone in Corinth Pipeworks’ offshore presence in the US Gulf of Mexico region, as end-users and lay contractors utilise Corinth Pipeworks’ latest welded pipe technology for critical offshore applications.

But, this seems to be largely due to tradition. In fact, many contractors will tell you that they still install product with an excavator because that’s the way they’ve always done it.
