TotalEnergies let contract to Vallourec for supply of casing, tubing, and associated accessories for the Gas Growth Integrated Project in Iraq.

TotalEnergies SE has let contract to Vallourec for the supply of casing, tubing, and associated accessories for the first phase of the Gas Growth Integrated Project (GGIP) in Iraq.

Vallourec will supply in aggregate 15,000 tonnes of tubes and connections for the project's 30 wells from its Brazilian and European plants. Deliveries will start this year. 

TotalEnergies and partners will invest about $10 billion to recover gas currently being flared in the Basra region on three oil fields to supply gas-to-power generation plants; and to build a seawater treatment plant to provide water injection for pressure maintenance to increase regional oil production as an alternative to water use from rivers and aquifers. TotalEnergies also expects to develop a 1 Gw solar power plant to supply electricity to the Basrah regional grid.  (OGJ Online, Apr. 5, 2023).

The GGIP consortium is composed of TotalEnergies (45%), Basrah Oil Co. (30%), and QatarEnergy (25%).
