JFE Steel Corporation

JFE Steel Corporation & Marubeni-Itochu Steel Inc. Received 172,000 tons of Line
Pipe Order for Chevron Gorgon Project

JFE Steel Corporation & Marubeni-Itochu Steel Inc. have been awarded the following line pipe orders for Gorgon Natural Gas Project operated by Chevron Australia Pty Ltd:

  • 154 KMT of DNV450 Grade line pipe for the Gorgon and Jansz Export Flowlines
  • 18KMT of DNV450 Grade line pipe for the Gorgon Domestic Gas Line.

The Gorgon Project is operated by the Australian subsidiary of Chevron (approximately 47 percent) in joint venture with the Australian subsidiaries of ExxonMobil (25 percent) and Shell (25 percent), Osaka Gas (1.25 percent), Tokyo Gas (one percent) and Chubu Electric (0.417 percent). The Gorgon Project is developing the Greater Gorgon gas fields, located between 130km and 200km off the north-west coast of Western Australia. The Greater Gorgon gas fields are estimated to contain resources of about 40 trillion cubic feet of gas, Australia’s largest-known gas resource.

As the large diameter line pipes supplied for this project will be used for long distance sub-sea pipeline, they must meet low temperature toughness requirements and have heavy wall thickness (maximum wall thickness: 38.0mm) sufficient to withstand operations under high pressure, along with anti-corrosive properties.

JFE has demonstrated its proven capability to fulfill these very strict and demanding requirements on many other projects. JFE has abundant experience in supplying high-grade line pipes for numerous pipeline projects all over the world.

JFE Steel and Marubeni-Itochu Steel will continue to supply high-quality steel pipe that is valued by its customers as it seeks to contribute to the development of global energy resources.
