Flexible pipe manufacturer Wellstream International advises the receipt of a purchase order from Chevron Frade LLC for the supply of 130 kilometres of flowlines, risers and jumpers for the Frade project in 1 200 metres of water offshore Brazil.

This FPSO subsea development utilizes an all flexible solution ranging from two-inch to eight-inch pipes including a 40 kilometre eight-inch gas export flowline.

The full scope will be manufactured in Wellstream's state-of-the-art facility in Newcastle, U.K., with Wellstream's Bardella Base in Niteroi serving as the project's logistics base. In total there will be eight major work packages leaving Newcastle from October 2007 to July 2008, totaling 110 reels.

Gordon Chapman, CEO Wellstream, said of this award, "This award represents the single largest direct award to Wellstream to date and confirms our position as a world class player in the deepwater market. The award is the culmination of dedicated pursuit, made possible by the teamwork between our Newcastle, Rio and Houston locations.
