Media Release: Serimax secure Acergy welding scope

ACERGY has awarded Serimax, a 100 per cent subsidiary of Vallourec, the welding scope of a major pipelines replacement project offshore Nigeria.

Acergy is removing existing risers and installing approximately 15km of corrosion-resistant alloy (CRA) pipelines and associated risers for ExxonMobil on the Oso Re project.

International welding company Serimax has been awarded the automatic welding scope for the CRA pipelines with diameters of 16″, 12.75″ and 10.75″.
