Tata Steel has been awarded an eight-figure U.S. dollar contract to supply pipe for Enterprise Products Partners L.P.’s new crude oil export pipeline in the Gulf of Mexico’s Keathley Canyon area. 

The contract will see Tata Steel deliver more than 48,000 metric tons of steel pipe from its 42-inch mill in Hartlepool, England, for the Lucius Development Project, which has the capacity to produce in excess of 80,000 barrels of oil per day.

Tata Steel will provide 105 miles (169 kilometres) of 18-inch diameter line pipe. The pipe will be laid at water depths of up to 7,000 feet and is designed to meet the required specification for deepwater conditions.

“We have a long record of success with providing line pipe for deepwater projects,” said Deirdre Fox, director of sales and marketing at Tata Steel. “This is a significant contract for Tata Steel. This contract enhances our position in delivering line pipe for deepwater projects.”
