CRTS gets $48.4 mn robotic coating project in Saudi Arabia

ST LOUIS, US: Insituform Technologies Inc said that its subsidiary, CRTS Inc, has been awarded a $48.4 million contract from Snamprogetti Saudi Arabia Ltd, a subsidiary of Eni SpA, to provide robotic coating of internal field joints for Saudi Aramco offshore pipelines that will transport natural gas from new offshore wells in the Hasbah and Arabiyah gas fields.

CRTS and its local partner, Diversified Lines for Petroleum Services, will provide robotic internal field joint coating for pipelines ranging in diametre from 10-36 inches. Mobilization and preparatory work for the project is expected to begin in July 2011. Internal field joint coating activities are expected to begin in the second quarter of 2012 and take approximately 12 months to complete.

The two offshore fields Northeast of Dhahran will add a combined 2.5 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas to Saudi Aramco’s existing capacity. The $6 billion Saudi Aramco Wasit gas plant will be its largest gas plant in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and is expected to be operational in 2013.

“CRTS is pleased to partner with Snamprogetti Saudi Arabia on this Saudi Aramco project. We are confident that we will again exceed Saudi Aramco’s expectations. Our work on this project will be a top priority for us and it will highlight the capabilities of our proprietary and patented robotic coating technologies,” said James A Huggins, President, CRTS.
