ShawCor Ltd.’s pipe coating division, Bredero Shaw, has signed a $60 million contract with Welspun Corp. Limited to provide pipeline coatings and related products and services for a Burmese offshore natural-gas pipeline project.

The contract involves coating approximately 335 km (about 208 miles) of 10-inch to 28-inch pipe for the Zawtika Development Project, operated by PTTEP International Limited.

The pipeline will be protected with a three-layer anticorrosion coating and concrete weight coating.

 

 Bredero Shaw

Bredero Shaw has protected about 250,000 miles of pipeline worldwide since it was founded in the 1930s.

The contract will be executed at Bredero Shaw's facility in Kabil, Indonesia. The technology-based coating plant was built to process large, complex projects in the Asia Pacific region.

Pipe shipments will utilize the two new berths at the Kabil Offshore Deepwater Port, which became fully operational during the second quarter of 2010.

Subsea Testing Facility Opens

ShawCor has also announced the opening of a Simulated Service Vessel (SSV) facility, designed to simulate deep-water service conditions for insulated pipe, flexible pipe and custom-coated subsea structures.

 Simulated Service Vessel (SSV) facility
ShawCor’s new Simulated Service Vessel (SSV) facility can simulate water depths of up to 9,842 feet.

Bredero Shaw will use the vessel to simulate service conditions experienced by subsea insulation coatings, by controlling the water temperature and applying pressure to the water surrounding the insulation coatings while controlling the temperature inside the pipe.

“By simulating these service conditions within the test vessel and measuring the heat flow and compressive creep of the insulating material, Bredero Shaw is able to advise the pipeline design engineer of both the thermal efficiency and depth rating of the insulation,” the company reports.

With the SSV, insulated pipe is installed in a pressurized tank and tested under subsea pressure and temperature conditions for long periods of time to determine thermal performance over time. Increases in pressure are conducted in steps to determine the immediate and long-term response of insulation properties to changes in pressure.

With market requirements trending toward deep and ultra-deep exploration, the vessel has been designed to accommodate testing to an equivalent water depth up to 3,000 m (9,842 feet) at an internal pipe temperature of up to 180°C (356°F), the company says.
