Tata Steel demonstrated its ability to deliver pipeline solutions to challenging and complex projects at the Offshore Technology Conference.

The company completed a £100 million project to provide pipe for the Discovery Producer Services L.L.C. gas pipeline in Keathley Canyon, Gulf of Mexico. The discovery is a 60/40 joint venture between Williams Partners L.P. and DCP Midstream Partners L.P.

Tata Steel supplied Discovery’s Keathley Canyon Connector™ with 214 miles of 20-inch submerged arc welded line pipe, weighing more than 110,000 metric tons, which was manufactured at the company’s 42-inch mill in Hartlepool, UK. The pipe was laid at water depths of up to 7,380 feet and is designed to meet the required specification for deepwater conditions.
