ShawCor signs contract for the coating of the Ichthys gas export pipeline

Wednesday, February 15, 2012      
 
  • The contract involves coating 889 km of 42" pipe that will be protected with Asphalt Enamel coating, SureFlo(TM) internal coating and HeviCote(R) concrete weight coating.

ShawCor announced that its pipecoating division, Bredero Shaw, has received a contract with a value in excess of US$400 million to provide pipeline coatings and related products and services for the gas export pipeline on the Ichthys LNG Project. This contract was signed with Mitsui & Co., Ltd. and follows the letter of intent that was initially announced on November 22, 2011.

The Ichthys LNG Project is a Joint Venture between INPEX (76%, the Operator) and Total (24%). Gas from the Ichthys Field, in the Browse Basin approximately 200 km offshore Western Australia, will undergo preliminary processing offshore to remove water and extract condensate. The 889 km Ichthys gas export pipeline will transport production from the offshore central processing facility through a subsea pipeline to the onshore LNG facility to be located at Blaydin Point, Darwin, Northern Australia. The Ichthys LNG Project is expected to produce 8.4 million tonnes of LNG and 1.6 million tonnes of LPG per annum, along with approximately 100,000 barrels of condensate per day at peak.

The contract involves coating 889 km of 42" pipe that will be protected with Asphalt Enamel coating, SureFlo(TM) internal coating and HeviCote(R) concrete weight coating. In addition Bredero Shaw has also received a contract for anode procurement and installation as well as custom coating. Work will commence during the third quarter of 2012. The company will execute the work at Bredero Shaw's facilities in Kabil, Indonesia and Kuantan, Malaysia. The Kabil and Kuantan facilities are technology-based, full service coating plants that were built specifically to process large, complex projects in the Asia Pacific region.
