Accessing global oil and gas resources is becoming increasingly more complex. Vallourec is tackling this issue with an extensive range of premium tubular solutions, seamless steel tubes and connections, as well as the associated services, for the oil and gas industry.
The Group provides leading-edge solutions that withstand ever more extreme conditions while meeting or exceeding constantly tightening safety standards, and suit every application in the oil and gas industry, namely drilling, exploration, subsea construction, hydrocarbon production, transportation and processing.
Vallourec manufactures and markets tubes designed for oil and gas well equipment encompassing casing, tubing and accessories.
All of these products are manufactured from seamless hot-rolled tubes and fitted with API/Buttress-type connections or, most often, VAM® premium connections. This, from the customer's perspective, means flawless tube column sealing or, in other words, solutions that deliver the safety and environmental standards and performance levels they expect.

Offshore and onshore line pipes
Vallourec also supplies line pipes and accessories for onshore and offshore hydrocarbon transportation downstream from oil and gas drilling operations, as well as tubes for umbilicals.
In the subsea construction market (or SURF for Subsea Umbilicals, Risers & Flowlines), Vallourec supplies risers and flowlines that bring hydrocarbons from the wellhead to the surface and then route them to processing plants. The Group also provides tubes and other accessories for umbilicals, which are "lines", made of small-diameter tubes, cables and/or optical fibers and used for transporting fluids, supplying power and transmitting information. Besides supplying line pipes, Vallourec provides its customers with a choice of integrated solutions packed with high value added, including welding, coating, insulation and logistics.
Vallourec also supplies onshore line pipes, i.e. tubes bundled with accessories and the related services, to transport hydrocarbons on land.
Hydrocarbon processing tubes
The Group's products are also used in downstream hydrocarbon processing plants. Vallourec pipes inter alia equip FPSO and FLNG units, other floating production platforms, liquefaction and regasification plants, refineries and petrochemical units.
