In 2022, the 10-year Long-Term Agreement (LTA) between Vallourec and ExxonMobil Guyana began with the Yellowtail project. The customer will utilize Vallourec’s premium line pipe products and its suite of digital solutions.

Renan Toussaint, Line Pipe Project Manager, and Romain Nieddu, Line Pipe Project Quality Coordinator, talk about the project.

Yellowtail gets the first green light
Yellowtail is a deepwater project based in the Stabroek Block, over 100 miles off the coast of Guyana. In 2022, Vallourec produced 20,000 tons of line pipe for the Yellowtail project, equivalent to 7,000 pipes and 400 accessories. Oil production for the Yellowtail project is expected to begin in 2025.

“In order to deliver timely, quality products for the Yellowtail project, we are leveraging our pipe mills in Jeceaba and Barreiro, Brazil,” Renan explains. “We can also draw on our R&D program to further ensure customer demands are met.”

The right tools for the job at hand
This project also represents a step forward for Vallourec in the use of digitalized tools at all levels of operations, from the production stage to customer operations. Vallourec’s ability to offer a complete package of both products and associated digital services is developing into a key factor for customers. ExxonMobil Guyana is leveraging several Vallourec tools, including Smartengo Traceability and Pipe Navigator as well as Best Fit analysis.
