PTTEP, Thailand’s national oil exploration and production company, awarded Vallourec on a contract to deliver over 3,000 tons of oil country tubular goods for its Myanmar M9 West exploration well on March 18.

The project will be essentially served through Vallourec’s subsidiary in Indonesia, supported by competitive supplies from Vallourec pipe mills in Brazil, in China and in Germany. In addition, VAM Field Services will be present on the rig to supervise the smooth running of the well.

“Safety, quality and value for money are the key success factors for our operations which is why we selected Vallourec for our project. Thanks to their proximity, their technical know-how and field services, Vallourec will be able to support us from the start of the project through to installation,” PTTEP drilling engineering team said.

With its Vallourec Tianda plants located in China, the group has a new, fully integrated production system, which enables it to offer a complete product portfolio at a highly competitive price to target local and export markets (Asia, the Middle East).
