(EnergyAsia, July 22 2011, Friday) — Canada’s ShawCor Ltd said its pipecoating division, Bredero Shaw, has secured a contract worth more than US$60 million from Welspun Corp Limited to provide pipeline coatings and related products and services for an oil and gas project off the coast of Myanmar.

Bredero Shaw will provide anticorrosion coating and concrete weight coating on 335 km of 10-inch to 28-inch pipes for use in producing condensate and natural gas from the Zawtika, Kakonna and Gawthaka fields, known collectively as the Zawtika project.
