Wasco Energy’s Pipe Coating Division has been awarded a line pipe coating contract with a value of over US$2 million from Samsung Engineering Co. Limited for the Sabah Oil and Gas Terminal (SOGT) project.

Geophysical and geotechnical survey techniques used for shallow water pipeline route investigations can also be used to determine the pipeline depth of burial in shallow water regimes. Multidiscipline surveys enable: 1) mitigation of risks from natural or man-made seafloor hazards; 2) regulatory compliance (archaeological, integrity management, shallow hazards); and 3) establishment of design criteria for pipeline, cable, template, etc.

Enbridge sprang into action after confirming a minor anomaly on its 30-inch Line 6B crude oil pipeline where it crosses under the St. Clair River spanning from Marysville, MI to St. Clair Township, Ontario.

Enbridge Inc. announced that Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipelines has filed with Canadian regulator, the National Energy Board, commercial agreements which fully subscribe for long term service and capacity on the Northern Gateway Pipeline.

Natural gas is being produced from many varied and challenging locations around the world. Gas-prone reservoirs tend not to produce clean dry gas flows but rather wet natural gas flows where the gas is mixed with hydrocarbon liquids and water. Furthermore the wet natural gas production from each reservoir is unique. No two wet natural gas production flows are identical.

Foster Wheeler’s subsidiary, Global Engineering and Construction Group, has been awarded a contract by Engen Petroleum Limited for engineering, procurement and construction management services for Engen's new multi-products pipeline feeder lines and infrastructure project at Engen's Durban Refinery in South Africa.

Southern Union has approved construction of the $235 million Red Bluff Project, a 200 MMcf/d natural gas processing plant and associated gathering, compression and treating facilities, through its midstream segment, Southern Union Gas Services (SUGS).

Natural gas is one of the most important energy resources1. However, its chemical composition can fluctuate considerably, depending on where it is found. Added to this, the various gas qualities are mixed together due to the networked pipeline system of main and sub branches, receiving and transfer stations and gas storage facilities. This means that the natural gas must be tested qualitatively and quantitatively at strategic points to establish its volume and its quality parameters such as its calorific value (CV or Btu), hydrocarbon dew point and hydrogen sulfide content.

Pennsylvania and the Marcellus Shale natural gas reservoir are emerging as a key focus of natural gas pipeline operators, as the increasing gas flow spurs projects to bring it to customers in the northeastern U.S. and possibly Canada.

NOVA Gas Transmission Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of TransCanada Pipe Lines Ltd., recently announced plans for two pipelines. The first involves plans to construct and operate four new segments of pipeline and related facilities for the proposed Komie North Extension Project.
