SPRING, Texas—Perma-Pipe has been awarded a $6.7 million contract by Indian company JSIW Infrastructure to insulate a crude oil pipeline. It is part of the construction of a refinery and petrochemical complex in Pachpadra Tehsil, Rajasthan.
The pipeline is being developed by HPCL Rajasthan Refinery, a joint venture between HPCL and the Rajasthani government.
Perma-Pipe will be applying its Trace-Therm insulation system to the 30-centimeter diameter, 74-kilometer long Mangla crude oil pipeline. The insulation itself is spray polyurethane foam, which is installed in conjunction with welded tracer tubes for heat tracing. It is jacketed with an HDPE casing.
Work was set to begin at Perma-Pipe's facility in Gandhidham, Gujarat in the first quarter of 2021, with the first step being the application of an anti-corrosion coating on the tracer tubes and bends.
