Shawcor (SCL) has received a three-year contract for the application of unique LotusFlo® technology.

Shawcor’s pipe coating division has been awarded the contract with Vallourec S.A. The aim is to apply the  LotusFlo technology to offshore downhole production tubular designed for the Buzios oilfields.

The contract is the result of an extensive qualification program with Petrobras, one of the world’s largest oil and gas producers, and Vallourec, a worldwide premium tubular solutions provider.

“Using LotusFlo in Petrobras’ Buzios oilfields represents the single largest implementation of this transformative technology to date,” commented Kevin Reizer, President of Shawcor’s Pipeline Performance Division.

Shawcor expects to increase the current orders for this technology to a range of $18M-$25M as a result of this award.   

Shawcor’s Channelview facility will execute the work. It is expected to begin during the fourth quarter of 2022 and to continue over a multi-year period on an as-needed basis.
