World leader in premium tubular solutions Vallourec announced the extension of its contracts to supply products and services to Petrobras. Since the initial signing of these contracts in 2018, Vallourec has been supplying Petrobras with OCTG products, including seamless steel tubes, premium connections and accessories, as well as associated services such as offshore inspection, repair, and supervision, amongst others, which are supported by its digital offer. By extending the contracts until 2023, Vallourec and Petrobras are reaffirming their historic partnership.

Petrobras uses the products and related services provided by Vallourec in its offshore oil and gas exploration and production wells, located mainly in large pre-salt reservoir fields. The Brazilian pre-salt reservoirs present several challenges in addition to the salt layer itself: well depths of up to 7,000 meters; very deep water conditions with sometimes as much as 2,000 meters between the surface and the seabed; acid corrosion caused by H2S and CO2; as well as high pressure/high temperature conditions in some areas.

The association of these factors sets the technical requirements for OCTG products, which must be able to withstand mechanical, corrosive, and thermal constraints. Vallourec has been innovating and reinventing itself every day in order to meet all these requirements, thus providing Petrobras with the most advanced technological solutions for its offshore operations.
