PIPE supplier Marubeni-Itochu has officially launched Tubestream for Linepipe, a project management system that offers real-time campaign management, detailed project progress, and comprehensive digital inspection data enabling end-to-end product traceability.
Australia’s leading LNG operator will be the first Marubeni-Itochu customer to utilise the industry-first, cloud-based Linepipe system following the pipe journey from preliminary planning to production to delivery.
Tubestream® for Linepipe follows the launch of Tubestream® for OCTG which was introduced to Marubeni-Itochu Tubulars Oceania’s (MITO’s) OCTG market in May of 2019. Tubestream® for OCTG is now utilised in Australia, New Zealand, and Thailand with over 50 major Oil & Gas companies actively using the platform. Marubeni-Itochu is currently developing Tubestream® for OCTG pertaining to their Middle East and North American markets launching in July and December, respectively.
Tubestream has been developed by Marubeni-Itochu’s Tubular Digital Centre (TDC), a dedicated, internal digitalisation team which is responsible for developing, testing, and implementing new technologies within the company.
