PTTEP, Thailand’s national oil exploration & production company, has awarded Vallourec a contract to deliver over 3,000 tons of oil country tubular goods (OCTG) for its Myanmar M9 West offshore exploration project.
The project is a challenging HP/HT (high pressure/high temperature) offshore field in the Gulf of Martaban, approximately 300km from Yangon.
Vallourec, a tubular solutions provider for the energy markets, said on Monday that the project will be essentially served through the company’s subsidiary in Indonesia, supported by supplies from Vallourec pipe mills in Brazil, in China and in Germany.
In addition, VAM Field Services (VFS) will be present on the rig to supervise the smooth running of the well.
Alexandre Valdelievre, Vallourec Commercial Director, South East Asia stated: “Since 2017, we have been working closely with PTTEP, building relations of confidence and proximity and supporting them for their offshore exploration projects.”
PTTEP drilling engineering team stated: “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.”
