The Right Pipeline Coating.
The entire life cycle of pipeline coating system
When selecting the appropriate coatings for a pipeline, it is important to take a long-term view that considers the pipeline’s entire life cycle, which could span 50 years or longer.
Several risks are present at each stage of the life cycle, at different intensities, which must be addressed in the coating selection. Pipelines must be able to resist the effects of aging, corrosion and physical damage from impacts, gouges and abrasions. In total, an appropriate pipeline coating system typically represents 1% to 2% of the overall pipeline cost, a relatively small amount for the protection it provides and not a barrier to selecting best available technology.

Safety is the number one priority in pipeline development
Pipelines bring benefits to communities and our citizens by moving oil and gas safely across Canada every day.
At Shawcor, we believe that safety is the number one priority for pipeline owners and operators, key suppliers, regulators, and stakeholders who are involved in pipeline development.
We think that sharing information about pipeline coating systems provides ongoing education among these groups to ensure that the highest quality pipelines are built across Canada.
