The first contract, with an oil producer based in the UAE, is to supply a complete package of materials that includes control line tubing and clamps manufactured by Downhole Products – a Varel International company, owned by Sandvik Group.

Leandro Finzetto, global product manager, Control Lines, Tube Oil & Gas, Sandvik Group, said, “Sandvik has established itself as a dependable producer and supplier of choice for high quality materials as our products continue to be used in some of the most aggressive conditions in the oil and gas sector. We look forward to working with our new customers and enabling them to go further with our superior materials.”

Improvements in the technology for the enhanced exploration of oil and gas fields have increasingly required the use of long continuous lengths of stainless steel and nickel alloy tubing for hydraulic control, chemical injection, umbilical and flowline control applications. Control lines are coiled tubing wound on reels, which are combined with accessories that together help in controlling the flow of oil in offshore oilwells. The order of high-alloyed material for application in sour wells will be delivered in Q3 2015.

The second contract with a top service company in Abu Dhabi is a major package for chemical injection applications for use on the Umm Lulu and Al Nasr oilfields in the UAE. The Umm Lulu and Al Nasr fields are located 30 km and 130 km northwest of Abu Dhabi, which respectively produce approximately 100,000 and 22,000 bpd. Delivery for this contract is targeted for Q4 2015.

Sandvik will supply coiled tubing for control lines and chemical injection lines, either as bare coils or in flatpacks, as per customer requirements. As control lines are often exposed to corrosive well fluids, Sandvik manufactures corrosion-resistant alloys.

Phil Cherrie, regional sales and marketing manager Oil & Gas for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), Sandvik Group added, “As a fully integrated manufacturer of seamless control lines, we have end-to-end capabilities which include in-house flushing, filling, and pressure testing to supply the complete package from control line to clamps.”
