Tenaris and Subsea 7 have signed an agreement for the supply of pipes and coating services for Bacalhau project, operated by Equinor and located 185 kilometres off the coast of Sao Paulo in Brazil. Discovered in 2012, the Bacalhau oilfield is located in the pre salt area of the Santos Basin at a depth of approximately 2,050 meters. The agreement includes the provision of 75 kilometres of seamless pipes for risers and flow lines that will be manufactured at Dalmine, Tenaris’s seamless pipe mill in Italy. After production, tubes will be mechanically lined with CRA material, engineered to improve corrosion resistance.
The agreement also includes anticorrosive and thermal insulation coating for 151 kilometres of pipes to be performed at Confab, Tenaris’s production facility in Pindamonhangaba in Brazil. A 3LPP anticorrosive coating will be applied to 81 km, while 5LPP Syntactic thermal insulation will be applied to 70 km.
