The Bayou Companies LLC have been awarded contracts totaling approximately $5 million to provide corrosion coating for two major pipeline projects in the Gulf of Mexico, parent company Insituform Technologies has announced.

The contracts involve the export lines delivering natural gas from the Walker Ridge Gathering System, an ultra-deepwater project, and the Big Foot pipeline that connects production facilities to existing subsea pipeline infrastructure.

Upon completion, the Walker Ridge Gathering System will include about 190 miles of eight- and 10-inch diameter pipelines, located at depths of 5,900 to 7,000 feet in the Gulf of Mexico. Technip, of Houston, will manage the project.

Bayou will also provide the corrosion coating for the Big Foot Pipeline, a 40-mile, 20-inch diameter pipeline that connects 100,000 b/d of production to existing subsea pipeline infrastructure.
