MFRI’s subsidiary, Perma-Pipe and Danish company, Logstor have formed a consortium to bid on the East Africa Crude Oil Pipeline (EACOP) project.

Their partnership has joined two leading pre-insulated piping manufacturers of North America and Europe to combine their fabrication, engineering and material science expertise.

The EACOP project is a 1450 km (900 mile) heavy crude oil pipeline running from the Lake Albert basin (Uganda) to the Tanga port (Tanzania) being developed by Total E&P, China National Offshore Oil Corp. (CNOOC) and Tullow Oil. The 24 in. dia. pipeline is electrically heat traced.

Perma-Pipe’s CEO, David Mansfield, commented: "We are very excited by this opportunity to join forces with Logstor to bid on what will be the longest insulated and heat traced pipeline in the world. We believe that the combined experience and expertise of our two organisations can bring significant value to the various EACOP stakeholders."
