Keathley Canyon Connector lets contract for line pipe

Discovery Producer Services LLC (DPS) let a contract to Tata Steel for the provision of pipe for DPS’s Keathley Canyon Connector natural gas pipeline in Keathley Canyon in the Gulf of Mexico. Tata will supply 214 miles of 20-in. OD submerged arc welded line pipe, weighing more than 110,000 tonnes. Delivery is scheduled for this year’s second half.

The Keathley Canyon Connector system, with more than 400 MMcfd of gas capacity, will gather gas from the Keathley Canyon, Walker Ridge, and Green Canyon areas of the gulf. Pipelay will occur at 7,380 ft of water.

Tata also recently secured an order to supply 48,000 tonnes of steel pipe for an oil pipeline in the Lucius Development Project, also in the gulf. A group led by Anadarko Petroleum Corp. last year sanctioned development of Lucius using a truss spar, with capacity of 80,000 b/d of oil and 450 MMcfd of gas starting in 2014 (OGJ Online, Dec. 15, 2011).

DPS is a 60-40 joint venture of Williams Partners LP and DCP Midstream Partners LP. The contract is worth more than £100 million. Tata will manufacture the pipe at its 42-in. mill in Hartlepool, England.
