United States : VALLOUREC bags contract to supply tubes for the Kaombo Offshore Project in ANGOLA.

Vallourec has secured a contract for the delivery of premium tubes and connections for the ultra-deep offshore Kaombo project in Angola, operated by TOTAL E&P Angola.

Under the contract, Vallourec will deliver 27,000 tonne of OCTG (Oil Country Tubular Goods) for wells drilled within 1,400 to 2,000 meters water depth and reaching up to 5000 meters drilling depth.

The Kaombo oil field is situated 150 kilometer off the Angolan coast and is one of the largest oil developments operated by TOTAL in this area, with complex drilling conditions.

The Kaombo project includes 59 wells to be drilled in a variety of complex geologies, requiring different types of well design with their contingency. A third of the wells target subsalt reservoirs, which require drilling through salt layers to reach target depth.

Vallourec stated that it will provide its most advanced premium tubular solutions, including VAM 21 connections combined with integral premium connections (VAM SLIJII and VAM BOLT).

Our premium tubular solutions, including our VAM premium connections lines, are recognized as standards for the most demanding and complex applications. Following large projects in Western Africa such as CLOV in Angola, this new contract demonstrates Vallourec's capacity to support the development of the most challenging offshore projects, said Mr Didier Hornet director of the OCTG and Drilling business line.

The company will manufacture and finish casing and tubing products in France, Indonesia and Brazil.

It is expected that the manufacturing of the First batches will be finished in December 2014, while drilling operations is set to commence in the Q3 2015 and run through 2021.
