Project Details

Parmelia Pipeline, Eneabba – 278km North of Perth, Australia managed by APA Group was supplied with a Premier Butyl Tape System™, which was used to tie-in with the existing pipeline coating.

The complete product range used on this project consisted of: a Premier Butyl Tape System™, a Denso™ Petrolatum Tape System, and Denso Glass Outerwrap™ Tape System

This range of products was decided to be the best option for this project, as APA wanted to ensure that the chosen protective coating system would withstand the natural backfill being used. The hot tap section of the pipeline also needed to be protected in a tape system that could be removed at a later date for on-going inspections. Denso Glass Outerwrap was used to provide additional impact protection over the petrolatum tape system.

APA personnel on-site were highly knowledgeable with the Denso range of products and required very little training during application and the project was completed on the same day without any issues.
