Vallourec has equipped Total with a 3D printed waterbushing for the EIG well in the North Sea.
“This is the first time that a safety-critical component has been created using additive manufacturing in the Energy industry. It was essential for us to have the right partner and a good business case. Vallourec, as a longstanding partner, provided us with that confidence.”
