In Brazil, the “
Vallourec Presalt Project
” is dedicated to developing solutions to meet the technological challenges posed by the huge presalt reservoirs found off the coast of Brazil. One of these is Tupi, the second largest oil and gas field discovery of the past 20 years. Vallourec teams are working closely with teams from the national oil company Petrobas to develop new solutions for confronting extreme operating conditions, particularly corrosion and the risk of collapse.
is a non-polluting coating developed for use on threaded connections to replace the greases customarily used whilst offering effective protection against seizing and corrosion. There is strong demand for these environmentally friendly solutions, which facilitate the use of our tubes, particularly in the North Sea.
joint was specially designed as a compact solution for very high torque applications. This product line has been deployed at various facilities for several different customers operating in very severe conditions.
The newly developed 12%
chromium steel alloy, designed for use at high temperatures, is now being used industrially in highly efficient, ultra-supercritical power plants. This steel’s outstanding resistance to steam oxidation is of particular interest to our customers.
is a stainless steel alloy which enhances the heat exchange process. The use of these super alloys for stainless steel and titanium welded tubes continues to grow in the energy, desalination and automotive markets.
is a patented large-span tubular roof frame system which has been developed for industrial and commercial buildings.
