Bredero Shaw wins pipe coating services contract from BP

Bredero Shaw, a pipe coating division of ShawCor, has been awarded a contract by BP Exploration (Shah Deniz) for providing coating services at the South Caucasus Pipeline Expansion (SCPX) project.

Bredero Shaw, a pipe coating division of ShawCor, has been awarded a contract by BP Exploration (Shah Deniz) for providing coating services at the South Caucasus Pipeline Expansion (SCPX) project.

The $70m contract involves coating approximately 491km of predominately 48in-pipe with 3-layer Polyethylene and internal flow coating.

BP has signed the contract on behalf of the South Caucasus Pipeline Company (SCPC) while coating operations are expected to start in 2014 and be completed in late 2015.

"SCP, a gas pipeline with a length of 691km, will transport gas from the Shah Deniz field to Turkey."

The SCPX project is aimed at expanding the capacity of the existing South Caucasus Pipeline (SCP) system to accommodate additional gas throughput from the Shah Deniz Stage 2 development in the Azerbaijan sector of the Caspian Sea.

SCP, a gas pipeline with a length of 691km, will transport gas from the Shah Deniz field to Turkey.

It follows the route of the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan (BTC) crude oil pipeline through Azerbaijan and Georgia to Turkey, where it is linked to the Turkish gas distribution system.

SCP is a 42in-diameter pipeline capable of carrying up to seven billion cubic metres of gas.

During the first quarter of 2014, SCP’s daily average throughput was 18.14 million cubic metres (640.5 million cubic feet) of gas or 110,430 barrels of oil equivalent per day.

SCPC, an incorporated joint-venture (JV) company made up of seven shareholders, is operated by BP and Statoil, its largest shareholders.
