Tenaris is set to start production for the second half of line pipe production for China National Oil Offshore Corporation’s Lingshui project in the South China Sea amid a transformed way of operating resulting from COVID-19. Tenaris’s technical capabilities were key to receiving the award by CNOOC in 2019 to supply 7,200 tons of pipe for steel catenary risers, ranging from 6 to 18 inches. This includes 2,700 tons of expanders as well as non-standard products. Tenaris is producing specialized heavy wall pipes at its mill in Dalmine, Italy. And for the non-standard 18” seamless buckle arrestors – needed for the welded export line not included in Tenaris’s scope of work – the team in Italy has also been supporting via its external network of service suppliers.

Lingshui 17-2 is a highly complex gas field located in the Quiongdongnan Basin offshore China with water depths of 1,200 to 1,560 meters below the sea surface, demanding a high level of technical expertise and product requirements. Due to the extreme water depths, Lingshui presents a challenging first development in an ultra-deep water environment for the country. The technical requirements have been a critical undertaking as well as the administrative and logistics management in which Tenaris worked in collaboration with CNOOC contractors as some aspects of the design were defined after the contract award.
