Shawcor Ltd. is a global energy services company specializing in products and services for the pipeline and pipe services segment of the oil and gas industry and related products for the petrochemical and industrial market. The company operates through a global network of fixed and mobile manufacturing and service facilities.
For a significant Argentine pipeline, Shawcor leveraged its local resources and expertise to provide a superior pipe coating system solution.
When construction of Argentina’s GNEA natural gas pipeline is complete, up to 27.7 million cubic meters of natural gas per day will be transported from the Margarita Gas Field in Bolivia to Argentina’s northern and central provinces. With approximately 925 miles (1,490 kilometers) of trunklines and 1,677 miles (2,700 kilometers) of branchlines required for the project, Argentina’s state-owned oil company, Enarsa, needed pipe coating solutions providers with the right logistics and installation support capabilities to ensure the integrity and performance of the pipeline for its lifetime use. Due to our coating facilities near Buenos Aires and our global experience on similar projects, Shawcor was selected to provide both the coating and transmission sleeves for the entire trunkline and portions of the branchlines on the GNEA pipeline system.
With Shawcor, Enarsa will realize its goal of ensuring the long-term pipeline performance and corrosion resistance of the GNEA pipeline system. Due to Shawcor’s conveniently located regional facility, which expedited the delivery of coated pipe to the project location, and its training resources, the company helped the project save time and money.
