Vallourec to deliver $100M worth of pipes to Total in Brunei

Vallourec, a provider of tubular solutions, has been awarded a $100 million contract for the supply of premium pipes with VAM® 21 connections for the offshore ML-South Project, operated by Total’s affiliate Total E&P Borneo in Brunei.

After a successful exploration campaign started in 2007, Total has a drilling program starting with 6 development wells from 2015. ML-South is located in Block B offshore Brunei and is an extension of the producing Maharaja Lela Jamalulalam field with water depth of approximately 65 meters, and is expected to hold important gas and condensate reserves.

The development wells will be producing at depth greater than 5,000m, in a highly corrosive environment and sustaining High Pressure/ High Temperature (HP/HT). These conditions position the project at a new field development frontier. It highlights Total’s expertise in operating in very complex environments and consolidates Vallourec’s leadership position in supplying premium OCTG (Oil Country Tubular Goods) solutions to the oil & gas industry.
