Canada-based ShawCor Ltd.  announced that its joint venture affiliate, Arabian Pipecoating Company (APCO), has received a contract with a total value in excess of $60 million to provide anti-corrosion and internal flow efficiency coatings and double jointing for the Saudi Aramco Khurais Pipeline Project. The pipe will be coated with Fusion Bonded Epoxy (FBE) powder and a FBE internal anticorrosion coating at the APCO pipe coating facility located at Al Jubail in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Over 2,200 km of pipe in various sizes from 8" through 60" diameter will be used for crude oil production and to carry salt water from the Arabian Gulf to the Khurais field where it will be used to provide enhanced oil recovery.

APCO provides external FBE coatings and internal linings, external multilayer polyethylene and polypropylene coatings, double jointing, field joint protection and custom coating services to serve the oil, gas and water industries in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Arabian Gulf region.

ShawCor operates through six divisions which focus on technology-based products and services for the pipeline and pipe services and the petrochemical and industrial markets with manufacturing and service facilities located in over twenty countries around the world.

The APCO joint venture is affiliated with Bredero Shaw, ShawCor's largest division, which is a leader in pipe coating solutions. The division provides specialized coating systems and related services for corrosion protection, insulation and weight coating applications on land and marine pipelines including highly engineered corrosion and insulation systems for deepwater applications.
