Maersk awards Tata Steel multi-million dollar contract for Culzean development


LONDON -- Tata Steel has been awarded a multi-million dollar contract for the Maersk Culzean project in the UK central North Sea.

Tata Steel is to provide more than 18 thousand tonnes of carbon steel welded line pipe for the Culzean development.

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-in. (53 km) 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.

“We worked very closely with Maersk, to ensure that the stringent technical requirements were understood,”  Richard Broughton, commercial manager, exploration and production, Tata Steel, said. “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.

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