Tenaris has secured two contracts from Aker BP and Subsea7 Norway for the prestigious Fenris project. This venture entails the development of a gas reservoir through an unmanned installation spanning 8 slots, with a subsea connection of 50 kilometers to the Valhall field center on the southernmost part of the Norwegian continental shelf.
In support of the Fenris project, Tenaris will deliver approximately 7,000 metric tons of pipes ranging from 10" to 17" OD, featuring the cutting-edge TenarisHydril Blue® Max and Blue® Heavy Wall premium connections.
These pipes will incorporate Dopeless® technology, a revolutionary dope-free solution that not only enhances operational efficiency but also offers environmental advantages by reducing running times and minimizing rejects and remakes. With a sour service grade of TN 125SS, these highly sophisticated products have undergone rigorous testing to meet the project's demanding requirements.
The line pipe aspect of the project, managed by Subsea7 Norway, involves the engineering, procurement, and installation of a 50-kilometer subsea tieback linking the Fenris unmanned installation to the Valhall production and wellhead platform. Tenaris's contribution includes the provision of approximately 10,000 metric tons of 14", 12", and 4" OD line pipe, along with the application of a reliable anti-corrosion coating.
