Swedish firm bags two Middle East contracts
Sandvik Materials Technology will supply control lines for key fields in the region
Sandvik Materials Technology, a division within the Swedish Sandvik Group, said on Monday it has been awarded contracts for the supply of control lines by two companies in the Middle East.
The first contract was signed with an unnamed oil producer based in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). It coveres a complete package of materials, including control line tubing and clamps manufactured by Downhole Products.
The second contract, which according to Sandvik was awarded by "a top service company in Abu Dhabi" is for chemical injection applications for use on the Umm Lulu and Al Nasr oil fields in the UAE.
Leandro Finzetto, global product manager, Control Lines, Tube Oil & Gas, Sandvik, said: “Sandvik has established itself as a dependable producer and supplier of choice for high quality materials as our products continue to be used in some of the most aggressive conditions in the oil and gas sector. We look forward to working with our new customers and enabling them to go further with our superior materials.”
The Al-Nasr oil field is located approximately 130km northwest of Abu Dhabi and is operated by ADMA-OPCO, a joint venture between the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc - 60%), BP (14.67%), Total (13.33%) and Japan Oil Development Company (Jodco, a subsidiary of Inpex Corporation - 12%).
First oil from the field was produced in January this year during the early development phase (Phase I). The Nasr Phase I project was jointly developed along with the Umm Lulu Phase I project, with Umm Lulu coming online in October 2014.
