GFG Alliance’s subsidiary Liberty Steel has announced that it has agreed with Subsea7 to supply steel pipeline from its Hartlepool mills, to be used in the Shell Shearwater gas field in the North Sea.

Liberty acquired and relaunched the Hartlepool mills in late 2017. According to the company statement, the mills have started producing the first batch for Subsea7’s order, including 12,000 mt of 24” steel pipe. During the next few months, the company said, the Hartlepool mills will be producing around 22 miles of pipe that will transport gas to the St Fergus onshore terminal in Aberdeenshire.

Liberty noted that the Subsea7 contract is one of the largest contracts concluded by the Hartlepool mills since its acquisition by Liberty. The relaunch of the mills after suffering badly during the downturn in the steel industry in recent years has enabled job counts to increase to 200 from 120 in the last few months.
