Tenaris Acquires Mattr's Pipe Coating Division for $166 Million12/04/2023
Tenaris has successfully finalized the purchase of Mattr's Pipe Coating Division, previously known as Shawcor, for a total of $182.6 million. This figure includes working capital and $16.9 million in cash.
Announced back on August 14, 2023, the acquisition has now received the green light from regulatory bodies in both Mexico and Norway.
Tenaris now adds nine new facilities located in Canada, Mexico, Norway, Indonesia, the UAE, and the USA, along with multiple mobile concrete plants to its operations. Additionally, it gains access to research and development centers in Canada and Norway, as well as a broad range of intellectual property and products.
Michele Della Briotta, Tenaris's President for Europe, who is set to manage the new Coating Profit Center, expressed enthusiasm about the acquisition. He highlighted that it would lead to a portfolio of products, innovative services, and coating technologies. It will provide highly efficient and effective solutions to meet customer needs.
This purchase especially strengthens their ability to offer complete solutions for concrete weight, anti-corrosion, and flow assurance coatings, useful for pipelines on land and at sea.
Tenaris plans to integrate these new facilities, ensuring they meet the company's high global standards in quality, health, safety, and environmental practices.
Mattr's Pipe Coating Division
Mattr's Pipe Coating Division, known as Pipeline Performance Group (PPG), has recently been involved in several significant projects, collectively valued at over $200 million.
These include a commitment from Saipem for a deep-water development project in South America, where PPG will provide thermal insulation and anti-corrosion coating services. The project is expected to commence in the fourth quarter of 2023.
PPG has received two binding letters of intent and two purchase orders for insulation coating services on four Brazilian offshore projects. One of these projects will feature Shawcor’s proprietary ULTRA technology, marking its second deployment on offshore Brazilian pipelines. Coating activities for these projects are anticipated to conclude by the end of 2024.
PPG's Vice President & General Manager - Western Hemisphere South, Fernando Ulecia, emphasized the division's reputation in South America for delivering high-value, technically advanced, and quality pipe coating services. The division's performance on various critical projects in the region showcases their product quality and execution capabilities, especially in challenging environments. Kevin Reizer, Group President of PPG, noted that these commitments indicate a surge in offshore activities, particularly in deep-water projects. PPG's global network of coating and insulation facilities is strategically positioned to support this increase in activities, with project visibility extending well into 2024.
In addition to these developments, Shawcor completed the sale of its Socotherm Americas subsidiary in Argentina to Patagonia Shale Services. Since 1989, Socotherm Americas has been providing external and internal anti-corrosion coating and thermal insulation coating to the Argentine and regional pipeline and oilfield tubular markets

This summer, J.P. Morgan Securities highlighted Endeavor Energy Resources as the Midland Basin's standout in mergers and acquisitions, suggesting its value might approach $30 billion. Endeavor Energy Resources, a privately-owned entity in Midland focusing solely on its operations, has seen a significant uptick in production. It now boasts a production rate of 331,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boe/d), marking a 25% increase from the previous year.
SilverBow Resources Inc. finished buying Chesapeake Energy Corp.'s oil and gas areas in South Texas. They agreed to this $700 million deal back in August. The deal included SilverBow paying $650 million in cash when the deal was closed. They will also pay another $50 million in cash a year later, with some usual changes in the amount. Chesapeake might get an additional $50 million later, depending on the prices of oil and gas in the future. SilverBow paid for this big purchase with the money they had, by borrowing from their credit line, and by selling more of their second lien notes.
An Exxon Mobil-led group is looking into launching Guyana's first offshore natural gas project near its sea border with Suriname, according to an executive from the U.S. oil major.
Last year, Saudi Arabia's sovereign wealth fund spent more than any other country in the world, making up a quarter of the $124 billion total spent by such funds globally. The kingdom has been pouring money into huge projects both inside and outside its borders, including the ambitious $500-billion Neom City and launching a new airline. Due to this massive spending spree, the Public Investment Fund saw its cash and assets decrease from over $105 billion in 2022 to around $37 billion by September, as the Wall Street Journal reported. With oil prices hovering around $80 per barrel, financing these large-scale projects is becoming more difficult.
Occidental Petroleum is looking into selling Western Midstream Partners. OXY focuses on natural gas pipelines in the U.S. and is worth around $20 billion, including its debt. This sale could help the company cut down its large debt of $18.5 billion, which grew due to buying other companies. Recently, Occidental agreed to buy CrownRock for $12 billion, adding more debt to its books. This comes after its huge $54 billion purchase of Anadarko Petroleum four years ago. The news about possibly selling Western Midstream made its shares go up by 5.7% to $30.81, reaching their highest value since July 2019. However, Occidental's shares fell by 1.6% to $59.56, as part of a wider drop among energy companies.
