Tubes for Umbilicals, flying leads and gas lifts
Vallourec Umbilicals proposes a new approach offering an innovative answer for your toughest challenges: super duplex welded tubes are thinner (up to -15 %) and offer superior fatigue performances (over 10 times higher) than other available solutions on the market.
Our project management organization supports our customers to increase effectiveness and mitigate risks. Our teams can coordinate and integrate every key phase of tubular offers, with partners and local content when necessary, to deliver fully prepared products to the customers (eg. pipe + coating + pipe in pipe + double-joints + logistics + full process and documentation process). A dedicated project manager is appointed to be the customer's single point of contact.
