Serimax, a Vallourec subsidiary specializing in premium welding solutions, has been selected by Bonatti for the supply of welding services on the onshore and shallow water sections of the Kashagan project in Kazakhstan.
The contract will consist of the construction of approximately 89 km of 28" CRA (Inconel 625 CLAD) pipeline in Kazakhstan. The first of its kind, due to the steel grade and pipe diameter, it will require the development of unique equipment and deployment of the latest Serimax technologies. Due to the tight construction schedule, the production will be conducted by two teams from July 2015 until the end of 2016.
This is the second major contract awarded by Bonatti for a highly challenging and technical project, following the In Salah in Algeria, highlighting Serimax's capability to provide precise solutions and handle very complex projects.
