ShawCor’s pipe-coating division, Bredero Shaw, won a USD-50-million contract from a consortium of Japanese companies Marubeni and Sumitomo to provide coating services for Line 2 of the South Stream Offshore Pipeline—which is composed of four pipelines that will cross the Black Sea and transport gas from Russia to Bulgaria and on to central and southern Europe. Scope of work includes coating approximately 342 km of 32-in. pipe with 3-layer polypropylene and internal flow coating. It is expected that the work will be completed in 2015.
