Tata Steel has won three separate contracts with TechnipFMC to supply high-frequency induction line pipe for projects in the UK North Sea.

The three different projects are spread across the northern North Sea and central North Sea, Tata said, without naming them.

Two will see Tata Steel provide more than 16 kilometres of 10-inch carrier pipes with polypropylene.

The third project requires several kilometres of 14-inch carrier pipes and 10-inch spool pipes.

Barry Rust, Tata’s marketing manager, energy and sustainability, said: “The contract awards are testament to Tata Steel’s reputation and experience, both in the North Sea and with TechnipFMC.

“We look forward to working with TechnipFMC on the coming projects, further developing our valued relationship and providing the highest quality pipeline to our clients.”

The pipe will be manufactured in Tata’s Hartlepool pipe mill in north-east England.
