ShawCor Provides Pipeline Coatings for Linea 5 Pipeline Project in Mexico

ShawCor Ltd. announced its pipe coating division, Bredero Shaw, has received contracts with a value in excess of US$40 million from the Consortium between Dragados Offshore and Swiber Offshore Construction and from Tubacero S.A. de C.V. to provide pipeline coatings and related products and services for the Linea 5 Pipeline Project operated by Petróleos Mexicanos (PEMEX).

The Linea 5 Project will consist of approximately 77 km of 36″ pipe to be installed offshore between the Platforma Enlace Litoral and the Terminal Marítima de Dos Bocas in the Bay of Campeche, Mexico.

Natural gas will be transported from the Litoral field to the terminal in Dos Bocas for supply to the PEMEX distribution network in Tabasco, Mexico.

The contracts involve coating the pipe with fusion bond epoxy (FBE) anticorrosion coating at Bredero Shaw Mexico’s Monterrey plant and the supply of heat shrinkable joint protection sleeves manufactured by ShawCor’s Canusa-CPS division. Lastly, Bredero Shaw Mexico will coat the pipe with concrete weight coating using its Compression Coat Technology (CCT) plant in Coatzacoalcos where anode installation will also be completed. Coating for this project is scheduled to begin during the third quarter of 2012.

Bredero Shaw’s CCT concrete coatings are the pipeline industry’s leading coating system for projects requiring rapid mobilization or the provision of concrete coatings near the right-of-way. CCT concrete coating systems are designed to provide negative buoyancy and mechanical protection for pipelines in submarine environments, wet environments or rocky and rough terrain configurations. Compression Coat uses a side-wrap application process, making it ideal for both small and large diameter pipelines.
