Global pipeline coating and lining activity is surging, pumping out more than $100 million in contracts in just the last few days.

Bredero Shaw, the pipe coating division of ShawCor Ltd., has been awarded more than $40 million in contracts to provide flow assurance pipe coatings for subsea projects in the North Sea.

Meanwhile, a joint venture led by Insituform Technologies has been awarded a $67.3 million contract to install about 135 miles of its high-density polyethylene (HDPE) Tite Liner in pipelines in Morocco.

Subsea Project

ShawCor announced Monday (Oct. 24) that Bredero Shaw would coat more than 110 km (about 68 miles) of six-inch to 16-inch pipe at its facility in Norway for Subsea 7, a global provider of seabed-to-surface engineering, construction and services.

Bredero Shaw will install flow assurance coatings on nearly 70 miles of pipeline for a subsea project in the North Sea.

The Bredero Shaw facility serves the flow assurance, field joint and custom coating markets and provides insulation products and services to the North Sea and West African regions.

The Subsea 7 coating contract will support subsea projects in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea.

Bredero Shaw, ShawCor’s largest division, provides specialized coating systems and related services for corrosion protection, insulation and weight coating applications on land and marine pipelines worldwide.

JV Serves Moroccan Venture

The liner installation contract for UPS-Aptec Limited, a joint venture of Insituform’s United Pipeline Systems (UPS) International Inc., is United Pipelines’ largest single project ever, the company said.

United Pipeline Systems developed the Tite Liner system in 1985.

About 135 miles of liner will be installed in pipelines in the Khouribga basin in Morocco for the Office Cherifien des Phosphates (OCP) Slurry Pipeline project. OCP is the world’s largest exporter of phosphates and derivatives.

UPS-Aptec is a subcontractor to Tekfen Construction and Installation Co. Inc., a Turkish company that is general contractor for the project. The slurry pipeline will be lined with HDPE pipe to provide corrosion protection and abrasion resistance to the newly installed pipelines, which will carry several grades of phosphates.

UPS owns 51% of the UPS-Aptec Limited joint venture; Allied Pipeline Technologies (APTec) SA, a Chilean company, owns 49%.

‘Historic Contract’

The project is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2011 and be completed by the end of 2012.

“This historic contract award recognizes United Pipeline Systems’ ability to manage and execute complex and challenging projects in difficult work environments,” said Dorwin Hawn, Insituform Senior Vice President, Energy and Mining.

The project also reflects the Energy and Mining group’s acceptance in the Middle East and North Africa, Hawn added.

Insituform Technologies is a global provider of infrastructure protection, delivering technologies and services for the corrosion protection of industrial pipelines and the rehabilitation and strengthening of sewer, water, energy and mining piping systems, buildings, bridges and tunnels and waterfront structures.
