The Pluto Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) project processes gas from the Pluto and neighbouring Xena gas fields.
Voestalpine Grobblech is among the pioneers in the field of the development of TM steels. We offer our customers a comprehensive range of products for various applications: structural steels, pressure vessel steels, line pipe steels, offshore structural steels, shipbuilding plates, case-hardening steels and heat-treatable steels.
Line pipe steels
In compliance with the state-of-the-art, line pipes for oil and gas, transport today is almost exclusively produced from thermo mechanically rolled plates. One of the most modern cooling plants is available for rapid cooling of TM rolled steels.
We supply line pipe steels in accordance with all applicable standards and special specifications:
- API B, X42, X46, X52, X56, X60, X65, X70, X80, X100
- L254MB, L290MB, L360MB, L415MB, L450MB, L485MB, L555MB
- HIC-resistant line pipe steels in accordance with NACE TM 0284 Solution A and B
All of the steel grades can be delivered after performance of the notch-impact test and Battelle test (BDWTT) at temperatures below 0°C.
Offshore structural steels
We deliver weldable structural steels for stationary offshore structures in accordance with EN 10225, BS 7191, API 2H, API 2W, API 2Y, API 2MT1, as well as various national standards.
We deliver high-strength and higher-strength shipbuilding steels in accordance with IACS as well as the specifications of the following classification societies:
- American Bureau of Shipping (ABS)
- Bureau Veritas (BV)
- Det Norske Veritas (DNV)
- Germanischer Lloyd (GL)
- Lloyd’s Register of Shipping (LR)

The Valhall field was discovered in 1975 and came online in 1982. It is operated by BP, which holds a 35.95% interest while the remaining 64.05% interest is held by Hess Norge.
In February 2008, Total was given approval from the Nigerian Government to begin development of its offshore Usan field. Discovered in 2002, Usan lies in OPL 222.
