OMS wins pipe contracts for oilfield development projects

Line pipe manufacturer Welspun has awarded Optical Metrology Services (OMS), a pipe measurement technology company, two contracts to provide dimensional measurement services on pipes to be used as deepsea risers on Chevron’s Jack & St Malo and Big Foot oilfield development projects in the Gulf of Mexico.

Having already carried out preliminary measurements on test pipes at Welspun’s pipe mill in Dahej, India, OMS will measure in excess of 700 production pipes for Jack & St Malo and 550 joints for Big Foot.
