Tata Steel wins three contracts with TechnipFMC for UK North Sea Projects

Oilfield services giant TechnipFMC has awarded steel producer Tata Steel three separate contracts in the UK sector of the North Sea.

The third project requires several kilometers of 14” carrier pipes and 10” spool pipes.
Tata Steel did not provide the financial details of the deal.
