Tata Steel has been awarded an eight-figure US dollar contract to supply pipe for Enterprise Products Partners L.P.’s new crude oil export pipeline in the Gulf of Mexico’s Keathley Canyon area.

The contract will see Tata Steel deliver more than 48,000 metric tonnes of steel pipe from its 42-inch mill in Hartlepool, England for the Lucius Development Project, which has the capacity to produce in excess of 80,000 barrels of oil per day.

Tata Steel will provide 105 miles (169 kilometres) of 18-inch diameter line pipe. The pipe will be laid at water depths of up to 7,000 feet (2,133 metres) and is designed to meet the required specification for deepwater conditions.

Deirdre Fox, director of sales and marketing at Tata Steel, said: “We have a long record of success with providing line pipe for deepwater projects. This is a significant contract for Tata Steel.

“We have excellent dimensional tolerance control within the 42-inch mill in Hartlepool, which enables us to offer deepwater anti-collapse properties and fast lay rates. This contract enhances our position as the global leader in delivering line pipe for deepwater projects.”
