Vallourec has secured a contract from Thailand’s national oil exploration and production company PTTEP to deliver more than 3,000 tonnes of oil country tubular goods (OCTG) for its Myanmar M9 West exploration well.
OCTG includes various rolled products, including drill pipe, casing and tubing used in offshore applications.
The project work will be delivered by Vallourec’s subsidiary in Indonesia, supported by Vallourec pipe mills in Brazil, China and Germany.
Vallourec South East Asia commercial director Alexandre Valdelievre said: “We are absolutely delighted to be entrusted with this contract, which truly reflects the benefits of our new regional organisation.
“Since 2017, we have been working closely with PTTEP, building relations of confidence and proximity and supporting them for their offshore exploration projects.”
Vallourec unit VAM Field Services (VFS) will also be associated with the Myanmar offshore project. VFS will be present on the rig to ensure smooth running of the well, reduce associated risks and enhance efficiency.
The PTTEP drilling engineering team said: “Safety, quality and value for money are the key success factors for our operations, which is why we selected Vallourec for our project.
“Thanks to their proximity, their technical know-how and field services, Vallourec will be able to support us from the start of the project through to installation.”
Vallourec focuses on delivering premium tubular solutions to the energy markets as well as other industrial applications. The company operates in more than 20 countries with 19,000 employees, primarily serving the Asian and the Middle East market through its facilities located in China.
