Tenaris was awarded the offshore export pipeline on July 23 for the Alen Gas Monetization Project in Equatorial Guinea, a key component of Noble Energy’s growth strategy in West Africa.
This 70 km (43 miles) pipeline will be constructed to transport natural gas from the Alen offshore platform to existing onshore processing facilities on Bioko Island.
The project aims at transforming the Alen offshore platform into a hub for the development of future Gulf of Guinea gas fields.
Tenaris will produce a total of 21,000 metric tons of line pipe at its Confab welded pipe mill located in Pindamonhangaba, Brazil.
“We are very excited to be awarded this contract by Noble Energy and we are looking forward to demonstrating Tenaris’s technical strength for this project in Equatorial Guinea,” Gregoire Flipo, Tenaris vice president of Offshore Pipeline Services, said.
