Bredero Shaw is the world’s largest pipe coating manufacturer with sales of roughly $940 million in 2009. In 2009, Bredero Shaw secured two major pipe coating projects. The first was Epic Energy’s $42 million QSN3 project in Australia and the $185 million Esso Highlands PNG LNG Project in Papua New Guinea. One significant technology development included Bredero Shaw’s introduction of the Thermotite Ultrafamily of proprietary new insulation systems with unique mechanical and thermal properties for deepwater oil and gas flowlines and the development of a portable plant capability for the division’s wrap applied, bendable Rock Jacket concrete pipe coating. In early 2010, Bredero Shaw announced the formation of a joint venture to provide concrete weight coatings for offshore pipelines in the Russian Arctic.
