Project Details

ADNOC Sour Gas Integrity Assurance assessed, identified and approved the use of Denso Hotline Tape, Denso Glass Outerwrap and the Archco 65 Topcoat System for the protection of their 16” and 24” diameter pipes at the soil air interface (SAI), based on the successful technical evaluation of a live trial applied to a FBE coated pipe operating at 90°C in October 2017.

In December 2018, fourteen 2 metre (length) SAI pipe sections were successfully completed at the Shah Gas Field.
